Well, I don't know about what happened in San Jose, but generally if a park is purchased with the intent of removing homeowners, you can be sure that the homeowners have been bought ought, or somekind of settlement reached to compensate them! I've heard of situations in Florida where old mobile home communities bought out the residents for large sums of money so that the land could be developed to it's full potential. Most parks offer a lease or rent control for the space rent. There are also many manufactured home owner associations that have formed to protect the interest of mobile home owner. If you have a manufactured home in Petaluma or Rohnert Park, I don't think it will be any time soon where the land will have the value that it does in San Jose!
