A mobile home rental is a situation in which one person pays a fee to the owner of a mobile home to live in it for a period of time. Mobile homes often sit stationary, though some are on wheels, allowing the owner to transport the home elsewhere.
A mobile home is much less expensive than a single-family residence. Therefore, the cost to rent it is often lower than what a renter would pay to rent a home or apartment. The phrase "mobile home rental" is sometimes confused with "motor home rental." A motor home is a recreational vehicle used to travel for an extended period.
