Embarking on the journey to purchase a mobile home in Ireland brings a world of comfort and convenience right to your doorstep. Whether you’re dreaming of a holiday retreat or a cosy year-round haven, understanding your needs and the buying process is crucial. This guide will walk you through every step, ensuring you find the perfect mobile home that fits your lifestyle and budget.
Understanding Your Mobile Home Requirements
- Size and Sleeping Arrangements
- Assess the size you need based on your family’s requirements. Mobile homes today range from two to four bedrooms, easily accommodating large families, especially for holiday stays.
- Seasonal Use and Comfort
- If you plan to use your mobile home during the winter, consider models with a winter pack suitable for all seasons.
- For longer stays, a larger mobile home, such as a lodge with spacious lounge and kitchen/dining areas, is recommended. Most lodges come with a winter pack as standard, making them ideal for year-round comfort.
Choosing Your Mobile Home Make and Model
- Research and Informed Decisions
- Conduct thorough research before making your purchase. Visit our Mobile Home Sales Centre in New Ross Co. Wexford to ask questions and explore options.
- British and German mobile homes are renowned for their build quality and attention to detail.
- Verification of Manufacture Year
- Verify the year of the mobile home as it affects depreciation. A badge plate on the chassis, near the boiler or at the front, indicates the year of manufacture.
Budgeting for Your Mobile Home
- Cost Factors
- The price of a mobile home varies based on factors such as year, size, manufacturer, and condition. Our prices range from €18,500 to €132,500.
- Location and Budget Implications
- Consider where you plan to place your mobile home, as this can impact your budget.
- Be cautious of deals that seem too good to be true and be prepared to walk away if necessary.
Placement Options for Your Mobile Home
- Holiday Park Considerations
- Inquire about annual site fees, average yearly electricity, and gas bills if placing your mobile home in a holiday park.
- Placing your home in a park owned by the dealer may offer a discount.
- Transportation and Placement Costs
- Understand who will cover the transport costs if the mobile home is placed in a holiday park not owned by the dealer.
- If placing the mobile home on a residential site, check if planning permission is required as outlined in our Residential Mobile Home Guide.
