    mobile home

    I have found a mobile home with apparent aluminim siding that someone wants scrapped for them. The man has said that all the contents that are burnable I can just leave sitting beside the trailer and he will burn it when the trailer is gone. My cousin and I have some small scrapping but no big jobs. We do have quite a bit of experience working with power tools and any tool I'm guessing we would need to do the job. That brings me to my questions though. Is it worth the trouble/will it be worth my time to take it apart and scrap it? If so, does anyone have any advice on how to go about it? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

    Oh my gosh, someone a while back made an AWESOME thread about the breakdown of some mobile homes, step by step with pictures and everything.

    I reckon the search feature will find that one out.

    Good luck buddy.
