Today will be a work day ..
knarf, be careful, some of those 70s mobile homes were wired with aluminum wiring, and the stuff is notorious for having problems. I pray you find something soon.
I wish you/yours the very best in your labors, and pray that everything will break your way til all is settled once again, FRiend.
Also be careful of late 80s to mid 90s mobile homes that were made with polybutylene plumbing. You can spot it by it’s dull gray appearance on the water supply lines, instead of white PVC.
70’s too ... thanx, appreciate it
go to GSA Auctions, and get one from the government..
bid on it and have it hauled to your site..
I think that's the best (but not only) way have an inspector look at the hook-up on the pole and the panel box in the house and his eye will see only newer, unabused mobile home ... at least that's what I think
I had a 30 yd rolloff dumpster delivered yesterday that I can have until the 1st of April, which is terrific if it all doesn't happen today.
10/4 on the weather
That's the info I need
Look for old slow Computers on Craigslist. My sister had a Toshiba laptop that she put away because it was too slow. It ended up being infected with viruses and Malware. I wiped it and put Linux on it. It is still going strong.
We had a fire last year. It didn’t take the 100 year old house, but we have had to strip a floor to the framing inside. Between code remediation (ancient wiring, but that was not what started it) and even trying to find contractors (oil booms bring building booms, and few want to mess with small jobs), we’re still working on the place. Thankfully, the insurance is good, but there will be cost overruns and tweaking that won’t be covered.
BTW ... we're eating everything ... my older one was 1978 and no one would touch it ... no insurance ... thus the paypal
It's not easy for me to ask.
Oh.., I gotta ask for a picture of the 90# Lab.
You have freepmail
Hoping it works-out reasonably well...
Our prayers going out for you and yours, Knarf!
The “problem” with aluminum wiring is the differences in thermal expansion coefficients, current resistivity, and ductility from that of copper... the aluminum can work itself loose from heating where connections are mad inpanels.
Aluminum wiring has been outlawed up here for a while.
His name is Bubba and he's a great, big lovable lunk.
2 years old of don't know his size and weight
Bubba? Maybe, change it to... Smokey?
Got a smile bigger'n Texas an' he'll play ball for HOURS.
Never got him fixed so it's time he got laid ... lookin' for another pure bitch in my area.

I understand that you were trying to do a good thing. I applaud your intent, but for what I am sure are very good reasons, it’s not permitted on this site.
Deal with the lender directly by calling & asking then for any repo's they have rather than shopping the lots themselves. Your second big cost is going to be moving set up to your lot.
What you have in your favor is the fact that like cars, mobile homes depreciate the moment they leave the lot even new ones. A lender stuck with a loan default is a motivated seller.
I HAVE found that about used ones and I got a couple of men in church tonight working it for me ... they deal with wheeler dealers, so I can't do it ... I'll just wait for the Lord to bless.
Thanx, snipe .. appreciate your suggestions
Bump to the Top!
