Worth Realty Arlyn McHenry, Realtor The Cost of Mobility If you've decided to have a fling at life on the open road, with your faithful spouse beside you, that gleam in your eye probably means that there's a mobile home in your future. That's fine by me. I've got quite a.few friends among the nomads of the highway. And I know how much they like the life. So I'm not going to try to talk you out of it. I'd just like to say that since you'll bespend- ing money whatever you do, wherever you go, it's smart to figure out how much before you have to reach for your wallet. Bear in mind that thestateshaye different laws — about license plates, to mention an obvious example. ' Mobile home owners I've talked to, agree it's better to pay at one fell swoop, if you have the wherewithal. Buying on time always pushes costs upward, what with the interest added to the principal. Don't forget that you don't escape from some of the bills you're accustomed to — insurance, taxes, utilities. Varying Costs — And there will be extraordinary costs you've never had to meet before. Park space can run from below forty dollars a month to more than one hundred, in case you happen to haveTcpun'try club tastes. Maintenance, 1 .-•':on the other hand, is a pleasure compared to a house — ho'painting, reshin- gling, or water in the basement. If you're half way adept at repairs, you can keep maintenance a strictly do-it-yourself proposition.-"'"'.'• '' .' ' -':•'•' ' The moving pattern seems to be changing in the direction of fixed abodes. The mobile home owner now prefers to leave the old one behind, buy a new one at the next camp, and start all over again. This, needless to say, can be costly or profitable, depending on how good a horse trader you are. It isn't hard to find some one anxious to make a deal as lorn as you stick to the popular, well appointed camps. Mobility is America's middle name. We've been on the go ever since the colonials first plunged into th forest and kept moving west We may be a bit fonder of th comforts these days, but we'r still on the go — as you'll fine when you become the provu possessor of a mobile home INTERSTATE PUREBRED BOAR SALE Sat., Oct. 7, 8 pm Fairgrounds, Northwood 30 PUREBRED BOARS Durocs, Spots, Hamps, Polands, Chester Whites and Yorkshire.
