    Excellent book covering all aspects of mobile home ownership. I purchased an old mobile home for storage use. The book lists by chapter the materials needed by name, description, with complete detailed description with photos on how to complete repairs. I plan to do repairs on the roof, floor, walls, and insulation myself. I am woman 68 years old with basic cut and hammer skills and on a limited budget. The directions, tips, and step-by-step instructions are very informative. I now know what to fix first, how to do it, and what I need to complete the repairs. The tips are very useful, and I will use them. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!! Barbara J Brown, Stilwell,OK

    This book is what I was hoping for. It explains how to work on Mobile Homes, including older models such as my 1965 Flamingo. It explains, for example, the difference between how a mobile home door hinges are installed, versus those in a normal home. I’m having doors replaced and was wondering why the exterior doors are so oddly attached. It also goes into great detail about methods of insulation, which I have to do, and tells which parts of the trailer (floor vs walls vs ceiling) receive the most benefit from insulation. Also, doing construction on a mobile home, such as changing out old windows, is something I have to face. Most carpenters I’ve spoken to have had doubts about how to go about this, and this book details out what they can expect.

    There are plenty of illustrations too. I’m really glad I bought the book. It will be an often-used resource.

    I am very impressed with this volume. I am needing skills to inspect older mobile homes and get beyond the knee-jerk reaction that they are old and ugly. Mr. Krigger’s expertise with this kind of housing and respect for it is extremely useful as a place to start. Then he takes the reader through all the component portions of the housing–how it was build, what its common weaknesses are and how to look for problems–before going through how to address the issues and make the repairs. I am finding this approach very useful in acquiring the new skills I need in moving from stick built to this type of housing.
