I've been moving and setting up mobile homes for several years now. Started out just a weekend job for beer money and I kinda got hooked on it. Anyway, a lot of these mobile home dealers have good deals if you own your own land.
Something to consider for the future at least. I don't know how the HUD laws are there in Cali, but they'll drive you to drinking with all their rules and shit here. Still an affordable way to own your own home though, and they've come a long way from how they used to be.
