New Mobile Homes. UK manufactured mobile homes in Spain
Thanks to a new working relationship with Mobile Homes Abroad Ltd, who are the biggest exporter of UK manufactured homes in Europe, Costa Difference Ltd can now offer clients UK manufactured homes from ABI, Atlas, Cosalt, Debonair, Delta, Omar, Pemberton, Regal, Swift, Tingdene, Victory, Westwood and Willerby.
Mobile Homes Abroad have dedicated show grounds in the UK for you to go and choose a model after reserving your plot. The process is very easy. First you let us know your budget and we then offer you all the models in that range including transport and installation.
There are two big shows in September that have all the latest UK manufactured models. The first is the Lawns Caravan show near Hull and the second is the Beaulieu Show in the New Forrest.
No one manufacturer is favoured over the other. You get to choose your home. Mobile Homes Abroad will advise, assist and of course supply the home of your choice.
There are many different floor plans and models to choose from. That is why it is best to filter the selection on price first. You are then only looking at the right homes and of course the team are on hand to offer suggestions to make the home perfect for the plot reserved.
On Paradise Park and Corrales Park you can also have twin units and again Mobile Homes Abroad have the experience transporting twin units all over Europe. They also have a park near Park La Posada for twin units and quite often we combine the two parks in the one visit.
It is a known fact that UK manufactured homes come with all the “bling” such as curtains, carpets and of course items such as footstools. For anyone wanting a home full of “bling” then buying a UK home is the only option. With Park Lodge Homes you add the “bling” afterwards.
With such a good choice of UK manufacturers you are bound to find a model you like within your budget providing it is a realistic one. Homes must however be at least 36 x 12 in order to go onto a residential park.
You have the option of buying a one, two or three bedroom home although three bedroom homes are harder to sell as a resale as the master bedroom is usually quite small.
By using the biggest exporter of UK manufactured homes in Europe we are ensuring that you not only get the best price for any home but a good back up service as well. The homes are insured for transportation and of course installed correctly once it has arrived on the park. They also have their own dedicated transporters in Spain.
So what should you look out for when thinking of buying a new UK manufactured mobile home for Spain. First of all it is a mobile home or static caravan as it is know in the UK. That means you will be turning the home into a residential home by use of added decking.
That means the first option to have is either Outlook French Doors or double Patio Doors. That will enable you to blend the decking with the home. Next up is the build materials. Canexel or vinyl cladding is a must as aluminium expands in the heat. The same goes for doors and windows. They need to be a white finish as black also distorts and expands.
Continuing with the build materials white guttering is also a must as black, dark brown or dark grey distort in the heat. It is much better to buy a home already designed for use in Spain with a simple few changes.
Now to money saving ideas. Double glazing is a must of course but central heating is not. We suggest using two aircon hot/cold units instead with towel heaters in the bathrooms. Central heating will only be used for a short period but aircon units can and will be used for at least 8 months of the year. April, May , Oct and Nov tend to be the best months for a steady temperature where heating or cooling is not required. It is cheaper to use aircon as heating as well.
It also does not pay to go for homes that cannot be blended with decking easily. Many older models are on the parks are missing out because they cannot be opened up to blend with the decking. Once opened up clients will easily enjoy 80 sq mtrs of living area instead of 40 sq mtrs when confined to the mobile home itself.
So how much will the decking cost? We tell clients to budget between £5,000 and £10,000. The decking works out at great value as it adds 40 sq mtrs to the home. Once the home is on the park it is best to walk round and see what others have done with theirs before planning what you are going to do.
Deckings can easily be a lounge extension, a dining room or a utility room. You have lots of options. The park will be on hand to offer lots of advice as well as cost in what you want.
The plots are nice and big which means you can add a shed as well. That is where you will put your washing machine. Having one in the home simply means you are missing out on cupboard space. It is also a lot quieter with the washing machine in the shed.
The plot sizes also allow you to install gazebos as well as a Jacuzzi or splash pool to the rear of the mobile home itself which again adds to the residential feel of the whole package. You do not need to buy the most expensive home you can afford. Buying the right home with a great decking in mind is much more important. That is why we offer advice first before the looking for a home process. We have lots of ideas and once a plot has been chosen we will know how to make the very best of it.
With new UK mobile homes in mind we send Steve, Martin and Derick to cover the best shows and exhibitions throughout the year. The Place in the Sun shows for example are held in Birmingham, Manchester and London every year. We also cover Hull and Beaulieu.
Mobile Homes Abroad attend even more shows which is why they are perfect as the UK home suppliers for Costa Difference clients. We look after the park visits and the installation of the homes once they arrive and Mobile Homes Abroad are at all the shows assisted by us for some of them. It is the perfect combination.
So what to budget for. Simply put you will get a nice UK manufactured home for between £40,000 and £60,000. For a top of the range mobile home you will be spending between £60,000 and £75,000. These prices will include transport and installation. The actual choice of home will always be down to you of course taking into account what you plan to do with the outside space that a huge 200 sq mtr plot allows.
Above is the plan for the final phase on Park La Posada near Malaga on the Costa del Sol. Plots are already being reserved off plan with the intention of buying a home to go onto the park in 2019.
Park La Posada has been open since 2004 and in 2019 it will have been completed. The works have not been in a rush because the quality of the park and the facilities have been so important. In 2017 an open air gym was added and in 2018 the pool and community centre have been extended.
Reserving a plot is idea for anyone who wants to come onto the park in 2019. There will not be any more plots once these have been reserved.

WHY COSTA DIFFERENCE?
The name Costa Difference was chosen for a reason back in 2005. Costa as in Costa del Sol or Costa Blanca, and Difference because we want to show the difference between dedicated genuine residential mobile home parks and tourist camping sites that also allow mobile homes.
Making a difference is all down to being passionate in what we do. We are also working with park owners who share our passion. The result? We are showing wonderful residential mobile home parks that are without doubt the best retirement parks that Spain has to offer.
Having chosen to represent residential parks only we are now tasked by the park owners to help people see for themselves if living in Spain is really for them. Spain does not suit everyone which is why that aspect of what we do is so important.
So where does our service start? We think that perhaps it has already started with you reading this and all the other information we have provided online. Maybe you now have some questions for us? If so please feel free to contact us and ask them.
Once you feel that you have found all the answers the next stage is to seriously think about coming on a visit to see a residential park and the lifestyle the residents enjoy.
On a short-dedicated visit you will have a golden opportunity to talk to residents you meet whilst on the park. Asking them questions at the time is a great idea because you will be hearing about their genuine experiences.
The Costa Difference way is very different. Our testimonials come from the residents themselves face to face. They have all gone through the same experiences. Started by asking questions, then came on a visit. After that it is back to the UK with plenty to think about.
If you do the same and moving to Spain becomes your dream, then we are going to be with you all the way.
There are many “Costa” companies on the internet selling everything to do with Spain but there is only ONE Costa Difference Mobile Homes in Spain. To find us again easily why not bookmark this page. We are at your service.

LATEST NEWS FROM SPAIN
Spanish prime minister, Pedro Sánchez, last week promised that Spain and the UK would reach an agreement over Gibraltar, in the context of Brexit, by the middle of October.
Speaking after the recent EU leaders' summit in Salzburg, he implied that there were still "complications" in discussions with the British government but expressed "the will" of both sides.
The "complications" in the negotiations are disagreements over "judicial and police cooperation as well as the environment and tax" and " tobacco".
"We're very near to reaching an agreement," said the Spanish prime minister, adding that the British government was being very constructive.
"I think that we can reach an agreement in October," he said.
A planned summit in Brussels on 18 October over Brexit is seen as a focal point in negotiations with the possibility of a further summit between EU leaders in November if needed.
