To find used mobile home trailers for sale, go to websites such as MHVillage.com or MHBO.com and enter your information into the search engine. MHBO.com offers listings for mobile homes by location and price, while MHVillage offers search results based on community style, size, location and price.
Decide what size you need in a mobile home trailer before beginning your search, Mobile Home Living suggests. Select the number of bedrooms and bathrooms you need based on your family size, and decide whether you need special features such as a kitchen unit, shingled roof or high-quality plumbing features. Finalize your budget by taking a close look at your current finances. Stick to this budget when you purchase the used mobile home, and take interest rates into account when you sign a contract.
Know the type of community you want to live in before you search for a mobile home trailer. Some trailers are available only when you purchase a lot in a community, while others are available to move. When you plan on moving the trailer to another location, make sure the trailer's size meets the requirements of the community in which you want to live. Put information about the trailer's location, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, community type and whether they allow pets into the search engine at MHVillage.com, and select trailers that meet your needs. Inspect each trailer carefully for damage before making your purchase, Mobile Home Living says.
