Things to know before you buy
The first steps to buying a mobile home in Wyoming include deciding how much house you need, where you are going to place your new house and finally how you are going to pay for it. Fortunately, Wyoming has a great website with information on all of this and more. The Wyoming Housing Alliance has information on state dealers, funding options as well as communities.

What comes after the sale
Like most other states, when purchasing a mobile home in Wyoming, it will need to be titled. To do this, you have 30 days from the date of purchase. You can find the required form on the Wyoming Department of Transportation website.
But, if a mobile home is installed on a permanent foundation and is taxable as an immovable, the certificate of title or the certificate of origin of the manufacturer, if any, must be delivered and canceled by the clerk County. The title waiver affidavit form can also be found on the shipping site.
When you purchase a new mobile home from the dealer, that home automatically includes a one year warranty that covers any manufacturer faults or problems that arise during installation. So, if you find a problem during that first year, contact him in writing (so you can have a paper trail if necessary) and let him know. Most dealers have staff who can handle just about any problem you may encounter.
Wyoming does not administer its own HUD dispute resolution program for mobile homes. However, if you have a problem with a manufacturer or installer that cannot be resolved, the National HUD Conflict Resolution Program can help. It is important to remember the following if you are considering filing a complaint:
- The retailer, manufacturer, installer, HUD or State Administrative Agency have been informed of the alleged defect (s) within one year of the date of the first installation of the House.
- The house has not been reinstalled.
- You can submit your request in the following ways:
