As a retirement project this summer we purchase a mobile home as a camp on the St. Lawrence River. It is a 1987 model and in need of some repair. I have a lifetime of experience remodeling and repairing the houses we have live in. All of them conventional stick built houses. Some of my knowledge and experience does transfer to a mobile home but they are a different. This is a valuable how to book for anyone who owns or plans on owning a mobile home as their full-time home or as seasonal home. As in any building one cannot just cut into a wall or a floor without knowing what is inside or if something may be damaged. This book provides cut away diagrams of the ceilings, walls and floors and instructions on making repairs to each. It also provides instruction for for repair or replacement of all segments of the entire plant: plumbing, wiring, windows, doors, etc. This is definitely a must guide for the experienced handyman or the novice.

I bought a mobile home last year, and even though I'm fairly handy with home repair and maintenance, I found that mobile homes have unique features not usually addressed in general do-it-yourself books. Floors, roofs, siding, anchoring, ceiling panels, and windows are just a few of the areas where specialized information is really helpful, and this book covers them all. Plus, everything you need to do is explained in step-by-step fashion with plenty of pictures and helpful hints and tips. Projects are grouped into topic sections covering exterior, interior, systems (plumbing, electrical, heating), and seasonal, safety & security. The book also includes information on closing up your home for the season, pest control, insurance on your home, energy conservation, hiring good help, other resources for mobile home owners, a glossary of terms, a brief history and overview of mobiles, and much more. A great reference to have on hand.

This book is right on the mark. It covers all the usual repair and remodel projects with clear instructions and excellent, color illustrations. Pays for itself in the first project.

I found this book to be very informative with information about mobile homes.When it comes to "how to do it" it seemed to be lacking step by step details.If your a handyman and know the steps then you don't need the book.If your a novice at home repairs like me and need step by step details then you might have to figure out some things for yourself.I went on the net and watched "how to" videos along with the book and this was helpful for me.

Since I am a mobile home owner, I have to do a lot of the repairs and things that need to be done. I am a Contractor by trade, but I do not know the first thing about a mobile home. This book I found, made it crystal clear what needed to be done and how this place is basically put together. Now, I can do the things that I know need to be done. The Seller was very good and the book came through in execellant condition. THANKS

I recently bought a single wide mobile home, which I am renovating and plan to rent out. This book is worth it's weight in gold. Everything I needed to know about the construction of the mobile home was in this book. Even my engineer referrred to it when he was evaluating whether or not I could remove walls and relocate the kitchen and bedroom. I highly recommend this book to anyone owning or thinking of purchashing a mobile home.
