Mobile home ownership is popular here in Manitoba, whether as a buyer you're just starting out with your first home purchase or, as a long-time homeowner, you're scaling down to something smaller and easier to manage during retirement. Some buy a mobile home as an ideal second residence, maybe setting one up on their vacation property. Others may want a mobile home to situate on their existing home property, perhaps for use by a parent or grown child.
Whatever your reason for buying, it's a good idea to know a bit about transporting, setting and hooking up a mobile home, even if you plan on having someone else do those jobs. If you're buying from a dealership, they'll often include the setup/hookup as part of a package. Even if you're buying a used mobile from a private party, you should seriously consider having a professional mobile home transport firm do the move and setup. Setting up a mobile home is no easy task. It can be difficult and dangerous, especially if you've not done it before.
