The Wagon Wheel mobilehome park in Oxnard CA has reached the end of it’s economic life. The iconic sign remains as a symbol of its era and its resilience but it too shall be removed according to local reports in the community. Groundbreaking development of new homes and commercial areas is quickly making progress.
 


Remnant Iconic Sign of Past Era in Oxnard

Like other mobilehome and recreational vehicle parks of that era, the Wagon Wheel Trailer Lodge was originally intended as an interim use with an economic life of 20 to 30 years. Wagon Wheel has been in operation as a mobilehome park for some 20 to 30 years beyond its originally envisioned economic life and a complete overhaul of the Park’s existing infrastructure would need to be undertaken if Wagon Wheel were to continue operating as a mobilehome and recreational vehicle park. Such an investment is not economically justifiable at this time, especially given the changes in the surrounding area, which make it clear that a mobilehome park use is no longer the highest and best use of the property.


New Affordable Housing in now known as Oxnard Village

Wagon Wheel Trailer Lodge was a 171 space mobilehome and recreational vehicle park located at 2851 Wagon Wheel Road, Oxnard, California. Wagon Wheel was originally constructed in 1953 with an expansion in 1957. Wagon Wheel has reached the end of its useful life as a mobilehome and recreational vehicle park. The difficult decision to cease operating the property as a mobilehome park was made by the owners. Ownership intends to fully redevelop the property as part of a larger project including the surrounding areas for use as condominiums and townhomes with some commercial development.
