Need some info on mobile homes
My husband and I are currently living with my parents and plan to buy a pre-owned single wide mobile home within the next 6 months.(We want to save money to build a log home.) We're not looking for anything fancy and a trailer in need of some repair is fine with us. We'll be looking for a 3 bedroom. We're looking for something VERY affordable so will probably look for a mid-80's to early 90's home. Which makes/models are better quality?
I'm curious what the average is for having a trailer moved, how to go about getting it set up on the property we own, info on septic tanks (installation, costs,etc). Will we need to have a concrete foundation? I'm trying to come up with an estimate of how much work and money will be involved for the bare essentials of setting this place up to be liveable.
I've been searching the internet for answers for weeks now and so far, haven't found much. Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions.
