Everyone has a different idea of retirement. For some, it involves moving to a condo in Florida. For others, staying put where they spent most of their lives is the plan. And then there are those who purchased land with the dream of someday building a house on it. Those soon-to-be-retirees are taking a serious look at todayís mobile homes, which are safer than ever and offer all of the upgrades of a standard tract home. Also, new mobile homes costs tens of thousands less than tract homes and custom builds, often allowing for an earlier retirement.
