Dale Johnson: You guy's drilled them hole's so big you have compromise the integrity of the rim-joints
Holes in bearing wall studs (exterior and interior walls that bear the weight of the roof and/or other stories above) may not exceed 40 percent of the width of the stud.
Stress Belden: This is just a plain stupid video with no concept of structural integrity of the
frame of the mobile trailer given any...ANY consideration.
Let's get to the point....
DO NOT buy a mobile home.
You save no $$$$$$$$$$$$.
charles schultz: what does it cost for this ?
William Willis: No way I'd waste all that time and money on a 40 year old trailer with aluminum wiring (pre HUD code days). Just haul it to the dump and replace it with a newer one that's bigger and all around more energy efficient.
Gregg Penner: I rebuild mobile home in Manitoba I don't agree with drilling holes in the rim board this weakens the rim board for moving mobile it gives its strength and second who ever designed a mobile with the floor joist running the same way with the out riggers from main frame there weak and can not hold up to any other work done
thunderstorms06: just pump the entire crawl space full of insulation so when you replace the trailer its still there and the next trailer can reuse the insulation pad.lol...give the old trailer nothing the buyer would benifit off you from.
Bernard Reynolds: why would you spend all that time and money insulating a rusted out old trailer. Not only did they not do a good job insulating it but they also weakened what little structural integrity this trailer might have had.
Scott Sanders: Certainly drilling so many large holes in the rim joist weakens that joists ability to support the walls of the home. Not the method I'm using to insulate the belly of my home.
thefeet: redneck hack job. sorry. had to say it.
jludtxs: why would packing the insulation tight cause the pipes to freeze?
