Mobile home installers move or install manufactured (mobile) homes.
License required by 39 states
48th most burdensome licensing requirements
29th most widely and onerously licensed occupation
Thirty-nine states require mobile home installers to obtain licenses. 1
On average, these laws require $344 in fees, 309 days of education and experience, and around one exam—the 48th most burdensome requirements of the 102 occupations studied. And because the occupation is licensed by most states, it ranks as the 29th most widely and onerously licensed.
License requirements vary greatly. While Arizona, California and South Dakota all require three years or more of education and experience, six states require none at all. Similarly, six states require two exams, but Indiana, New Hampshire and Oklahoma require none. Fees also vary widely, from $25 in Tennessee to $2,790 in Arkansas. Arkansas’ fees are so high because the state requires a $2,500 recovery fund fee.
