You can certainly use a Realtor. Just make sure your agent understands that most buyers won't be looking in the MLS for a mobile home, so you have to use other marketing, too. That means a sign in the window. It means a letter or postcard to everyone else in the mobile home park. And it also means Craigslist.
Getting back to terms, figure out what the payments could be on your mobile home. For example, let's say you want to sell it for $15,000. You'd be willing to take just $100 down. So you'd be financing $14,900. Over 5 years, at 9% interest, payments would be $302. Let's say lot rent is $275.
You might run an ad something like: "Only $100 down moves you in to your own home. Owner financing! No bank qualifying! Pay only $302 a month. Lot rent just $275. Qualifies for 10% income tax credit. The American dream of home ownership can be yours today. Call xxx-xxxx."
Points to emphasize (if you want to move it fast): Low down payment. Owner financing. No bank qualifying. Mention the 10% income tax credit. Keep the monthly payment figure (in my example it's $302) separate from the lot rent. Makes it seem less. And price the overall monthly payment figure about 20% (or more) below what a comparable apartment would rent for in the same general area.
If you want to sell fast, that's how you do it.
Hope that helps.
Have you tried to talk to the park manager or a local Realtor? Family and friends could be a good referral source for you too. Usually, a professional like a Realtor who is familiar with mobile home sales would have all the connections and tools to expose your mobile home to a vast audience. Our company uses slide shows and multiple photos on You Tube, multiple web sites to reach the 90% buyers looking on the web for their new home as well as multile MLS services. A good Realtor can also give you advise based on your situation as to what is the best plan of action. Let me know if I may be of further service.
Take care & best wishes.

If you can't pay the space rent you need to sell quickly. The park can take ownership of your home for unpaid space rent and leave you emptyhanded. Don't let that happen!!!
The best way to sell quickly at a good price is to offer terms. If you'll accept a reasonable down payment and make the monthly payments reasonable for the new buyer, you'll quickly solve your problem. If you insist on a cash payment, you'll need to discount the home heavily to attract a buyer quickly.

Go to town, talk to the local trailer dealers. Tell them what you have. Ask them what they would give you for it. They would buy it outright, but you will not get a lot for it.
It may not be enough to cover your costs, it might. It is another option if you can't get the trailer park to give you a little time while a realtor tries to find you a buyer.
But the first step is get it listed!
