You are correct, Wisconsin requires a dealers license after 2 MH’s. If you are really going to pursue these Lonnie Deals, you’ll just have to consider this the cost of doing business. I think the cost for the license is around $340. But you get 2 Dealer’s License Plates which you can use on your car!!
When I applied for my license at the beggining of the year a $25,000 bond was required. I believe this cost about $250.00.
As far as the zoning goes, the only thing you have to worry about is an outside entrance that leads directly to your office. My attorney said that if questioned, I’m running my business out of my garage, which has access to the outside. But, I can fall back on local zoning which states that if I’m running a business out of my house, I cannot open my business to the public. You won’t need a showroom, if you don’t have mobile homes to display.
Initially, there is a lot of Red Tape to get started. But once your done, it’s all over. Also, by being a dealer, you’ll get all the information required by the state to ensure your Lonnie Deals are legal.
Where are you located in Cheeseland?
