    how much work and money would it take to move a double wide from point A to point B? im thinking of trying to get some land after im done with school but wont have the money to build a house. would it be woth it to get a trailer or would it cost to much to get it there? i didnt look into prices yet but about how much would a used one cost? some one told me they dont cost all that much. doesnt need to be any thing to nice, just something in desent shape that keeps me dry.

    I sold a single wide to a guy he had to move it about 10 miles, and he said it cost him 1500.00 and that was tear down move and set back up. And also in texas.

    I can't find a descent price guide on the internet. However, I recently bought a 1999 16X80 single wide. 3 bedrooms/2bath/fireplace/garden tub

    I paid $23,000 for it. I can't say if that is good or bad nationally, but according to all the local prices, it is a good price. It is on an Air Force base "trailer court", which they are closing in 2.5 years. The USAF is paying for the move of the trailer within 100 miles, even if I sell it to a civilian, so I luckliy don't have to worry about it. Let me know what you find though, I am curious.
