You’re right Roxann They aren’t very secure, especially in California where even stick built houses disapear occasionally.
Noone wants to be driving down the road and see their home pass them going in the opposite direction.
There are a few things you can do to decrease your odds of someone mistaking your California mobile home for a $20 bill on the ground and running off with it.
Remove the wheels and axels and tongue and store them at another location. If the tongue is welded on instead of being the newer bolt on type just have a welder cut it off with an aceytlene torch. If you store them under the mobile home, like most people do, a thief can easly find them and put them back on and tow away your home. If you want to further increase your anti-thept protection you could have the welder also cut off the axel hangar brackets. That would really stop any but the most ardent thiefs because they would then have nowhere to bolt the axels to, that they can’t find anyway, because you have stored them who knows where.
If you still have Californiaitis, buy plenty of anti-thept insurance, but just be sure noone steals your copy of the ins. policy.
Hope you sleep well tonight.
