Trulia doesn't sell or rent houses It is merely a website that posts information. I would check all rental information out carefully as there have been many scams recently. The owner may well have contacted you...that seems appropriate to me Just know not to pay any monies up front before you see the home.

Good luck.

You really should start with the park manager of the park/communities you are interested in. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rent/lease park/community.

Be wary of any manufactured home built before June 15, 1976 as they are "PRE HUD" homes and will be very difficult if not impossible to finance. Additionally many if not most PRE HUD homes were built using caustic and carcinogenic chemicals i.e. formaldehyde and asbestos.

But before you purchase any manufactured home you should have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.Make sure the home is level and that the pier and pad assemblies are in good shape.

Be sure the vapor barrier and insulation are in tact and not ripped, torn or lying on the ground. Have the inspector look for drainage issues i.e. standing water, soil erosion, expansive (clay soil), rusted and deteriorating piers and dry rotted or decomposing wood pads supporting the piers.

Most importantly make sure the home has an approved set of Earthquake Resistant Bracing (ERBS) installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:

Marissa,

Grace gave you good advice.

Our rental market is very competitive right now and you are not alone. It is going to take persistence on your part. By contacting agents they may have listings which can be rented out. Many agents help their clients in rentals before they are put on the market. The more people you talk with the better opportunity for results.

Have an amazing day!
