A buying guide to double wide mobile homes

Double wide mobile homes are convenient because they are easily set up, movable, and roomy. Find out which things to look out for when buying one of these mobile structures either as your permanent abode, second home or to take on vacations with you. This article provides information about mobile homes and how to buy one.

All about mobile houses

Mobile housing The history of homes or caravan homes in the US began in the 1950s with the initial purpose of improving mobility while camping. Later on, these were marketed as inexpensive ways of providing shelter. To this day, mobile homes remain popular because they serve a variety of purposes from a vacation home to a permanent house. Types of mobile homes In the UK, touring caravans, mobile homes and static caravans are the main types of caravans. The Caravan Act of 1968 defines the following: Composition Caravans consist of one or two units at most. Dimensions Length - 18.288 metres
Width - 6.096 metres
Height - 3.048 metres Can be moved A mobile home can be moved in its entirety or split into (not more than) two sections for transport.

How to buy one

Determine your needs The size and type of caravan that you buy depends on your purpose (holiday, permanent dwelling, or vacation house), the number of people who are going to stay or live in it, and how much weight you are willing to tow (if used as a holiday trailer). Features that are important A kitchen, shower, toilet and bunk beds are important whether you are going to move from one place to another or stationed in one place. Folding tables, chairs, beds, dinette, and storage space are other nice extras for holiday caravans. Second-hand or brand new If you are buying a used trailer house, make sure that you check it thoroughly for any defects such as corrosion, moisture, brake failure, tyre condition and the like. Financing your static caravan/home Prefabricated homes, caravan homes or manufactured modular homes are not cheap by any means. You can buy them brand new or second-hand. They cost from £5995 for a two-bedroom Havana caravan to £139,995 for an Omar Kingfisher caravan (31.07.11 prices, Parkresorts.com). Unlike loans for homes, obtaining credit for a trailer house is not that easy since there is no land attached to it. However, banks, credit unions, cooperatives and other financial institutions are possible sources of credit. Trailer homes also need to be insured, taxes and fees paid in the community or sites where they are set up.
