Manufactured housing

Postby woodchuck » Wed Dec 30, 2020 3:24 pm

Does anyone have information concerning manufactured housing in Peru?
Years ago, people referred to these houses as "trailers", but they have come a long way.
What companies offer MH's in Peru?
What are the average costs for a 2 bedrooms, 2 baths model?
Are there any issues with transporting these MH's?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Best wishes & Happy New Year to everyone.

These trailers are popular summer or winter homes at social clubs a the beach, and you are right, they have come a long way. Some are downright luxurious. I know of a few cases where the family has the trailer at the beach in summer, and then in the hills close to Lima in the winter. Sorry I can't tell you about the logistics of the move, but many people do it, so it's absolutely doable.

Prices are all over the place. You can get a sense of them here: https://www.olx.com.pe/otros-vehiculos_c380/q-rodante

He is looking for a manufactured home, not a trailer.

I have never seen the "pre-fab/mobile home" type houses here. The option people tend to go for are more like kit/modular homes, probably because moving something as large as a one of these American-styled mobile homes would be complicated, whereas slapping something together (or disassembling then reassembling) is more viable -- and probably cheaper, too.

You can see some of these kit homes here, or just search "casa prefabricada".

My interests are in "trailers" also, due to the transportation issue.

Happy New Year to everyone.

Too bad there's no lakeside trailer parks in Peru.
