We sell many, many Champion Homes every year. But the process doesn't stop after selling the home, you still have to prepare the site, install the home, get your new mobile home inspected and receive a Certificate of Occupancy all before you can move in.
Installing the home is no easy feat, and requires speciality equipment to move the home into place.
We have included a link to the Champion Homes Installation Manual here for your benefit. This is provided by the Champion Homes factory and includes instructions that are specific to their line of homes.
There are several steps included that are crucial for correctly installing your home. For one, you will want to check the data plate that is included with every HUD home. This is information that is required to be provided according to laws set by HUD and the federal government.
Confirm your wind zone for your home. This ensures it is in line with local requirements. If you're in Florida, for example, you will want to make sure your home can stand up to inclement weather.
This manual also shows how to install pier footings versus "runners", which is a type of concrete foundation that runs underneath each wheel when the home is rolled onto site.
