Pro.

 

 

1. Cheaper.

 

The cost differences between a "normal" home and a mobile home are significant by any standard.

In fact, the main reason many people choose this housing format is due to cost considerations‚ÄĒlack of bill payments for a wide variety of Local authorities and other service-providing monopolies and other more multiple reasons.

The design and maintenance are also much more straightforward, And of course - the construction itself. and from an irreversible state of having to enslave - (better known as 'mortgage') your whole life for four walls, in a mobile home, on the other hand, is really not a life-changing operation.

3. Maintenance.

 

Unlike a "real home," a mobile home is characterized by reasonably simple maintenance.
The efforts to furnish it do not even come close to those involved in designing and furnishing an "ordinary home."

Everything is relatively small and compact. The cleaning procedure is also quite simple. And overall, it can be said with a high level of certainty that maintaining a mobile home is much simpler.

There is indeed the need to know how to "fit" things accurately and purposefully into "smaller" spaces that characterize a mobile home. But once this adjustment has been made, daily maintenance is more straightforward.

Cons.

 

 

1. Size.

 

Generally speaking, mobile homes will be characterized by smaller sizes, sometimes even in a way that will make it challenging to manage a proper living environment.

If you are such a type that this matter does not bother him, and you have no problem adapting to smaller spaces - fine. But if you need an extensive home interior space - this may be a problem.

The issue of size is fundamental whenever mobile homes come up for discussion. It is impossible to avoid it, and you must be well aware before making a decision.

A mobile home may be too tiny

 

 

 

While there is no doubt that in our modern era, there has been a massive improvement In everything that concerns the sizes of mobile homes, and today you can find mobile homes in quite impressive sizes, still, with that being said, a significant proportion of houses of this type will have their owners adapt to a relatively limited interior space.

2. Lack of stability.

 

Despite the fairly respect and appreciation that many of us have for the free spirit and dynamism that characterizes the idea of mobile homes, Still, with that being said, some lack of stability also characterizes mobile homes.

Lack of stability that gets reflected in the absence of a healthy and beneficial community and family life.

So with all the proper extinction for that free spirit idea, most people (still) prefer their homes connected to the ground (including the metaphorical aspect).

Moreover, We all know the American dream regarding the cute house/garden and garage.

That stability, along with that well-known American dream, getting affected to a certain extent in a bad way by the idea of mobile homes. You can read more about it here.

3. Technical and social difficulties.

 

Despite the romantic idea that may prevail with the mobile home concept. It is important to emphasize that there are also some substantial difficulties involved.

For example, you can not just park your house wherever you want. It depends on the laws of the specific country/district in which you are located.

In some, you are allowed to park your home only if you own physical land, while in others, It will be possible only in approved parking lots designated for this.

In both cases, there's more to it than you might think.

Another example of Technical and social difficulties is the lack of public services that you may have become accustomed to during your stay "in ordinary homes."

We hope you are well aware that you will not receive the same level of medical / community/police / economic services and more that the authorities will be able and obligated to provide you with a "normal" living environment, compared to a remote and isolated caravan park Etc.

You will need to adapt improvisational and creative abilities that you may not have to use in a non-mobile living environment.

Moreover, unfortunately, there is a pretty socially solid stigma regarding people who choose such a way of living and the difficulties they experience.

They are perceived as not serious, "hippies," trouble seekers, and so on.

Think of the look of a "serious" girl on a first date when you tell her you to live in a caravan in a remote parking lot.

And don't get us wrong. We are not trying o tell you to plan your life according to other people's opinions. Hell no! This is not our intention at all. We only wish to reflect on the social situations we may encounter when making certain decisions.

By the way, many argue for another and very significant problem when it comes to mobile homes - extreme depreciation. Read more about that here.

 Here  You can read in detail about the typical daily difficulties in this housing concept.

There are other technical and social difficulties associated with this type of residence. Due to length, we have mentioned only some of them.
