New home for our new home on wheels

WOW. I just spent from 8Am to 10PM dismantling a 69x14.5x14 RV/storage building in Galt, CA. I got about about 1/4 of it done. This is savings us about $4000. Man what a lot of work. Our new home wheels will have a comfy cave to live in when we aren't out driving it around. This will be great protection from the UV rays that want to eat the grahics off the sides.

Assume this is the 2x2 tubular frame variety. Just be sure to anchor it soundly & deeply into the ground to prevent wind uplift. A must-do for your MH investment and required by all municipal building codes. Upon erection, any loose screws need to be replaced with new over-sized ones to ensure the snugness of the frame.

BTW: The roof panel layout, unless marked for same re-erection sequence, will have misplaced screw points as these are oft field-determined and not pre-punched. Ditto for wall panel screw locations.
