What is a Mobile Home?
The home that goes wherever you want to go
The home that goes wherever you want to go
How do you imagine your dream home to be? Would you like to take it with you wherever you go? Would you like to move it according to each season? Then you are looking for a mobile home.
A mobile home, as the name suggests, is a home that you can move. A home equipped with chassis frame, wheels and tow rope that makes it 100% transportable. It is very easy to move, it does not need to be disassembled, and there is no need to anchor it to the ground by any means. It does not need to be assembled: no foundations nor any Public Works connections. This means that our mobile homes are qualified as "personal property", according to Section 335 of the Spanish Civil Code*.
Our mobile homes and bungalows qualify for UNE-EN 1647 Regulation**, that regulates leisure accommodation vehicles and mobile homes. Each one is identified by a chassis number and a licence number, which appear in the mobile home documents as well as in the licence located at the entrance door.
Therefore, technically speaking, a mobile home is a type of industrialised property, self-supporting, monoblock, that uses chassis, axle, tyres, and reversible tow rope in order to make transport easy.
Nevertheless, a mobile home is much more than its technical specifications. A mobile home is a complete home that you can design to your taste, with all the comfort and conveniences of a traditional home that you can take wherever you want without worries.
Homes with modern or traditional designs... There are many types of mobile home, but at Alucasa you will always find what you are looking for. If not, we can design it for you, always with our company’s quality and long-lasting hallmarks.

What makes our homes so long lasting is the production process and the use of high quality materials. They are made for all type of temperatures, either high or low, as well as for all types of climate. This is very important, because good insulation will undoubtedly provide the highest comfort and save energy consumption.
A detailed explanation of our technical specifications is included below. We have nothing to hide, because is the result of lengthy research into materials and a production process considered "100% without defects".
Exteriors, because beauty is not only in the interior.
The chassis is the part of the mobile home that gives it mobility and strength, essential in the production process.
The mobile home has a rectangular chassis, manufactured in 100% galvanized steel (protected with an anti-corrosive treatment), with continuous filament solders. It comes with a reversible tow rope (in order to make mobile home assembly easier) and detachable pneumatic wheels.
The floor is made of high-density particle board, covered with a strong parquet-like polyvinyl layer, with the highest resistance in the market. It is resistant to blows, scratches, breaks and water, environmentally friendly, and gives great thermal and acoustic insulation.
External walls. Our manufacturing standar: the highest insulation average.
The walls are made of vacuum-pressed sandwich panels. They contain high-density 50mm expanded polystyrene insulation. The following are among the qualities and attributes of expanded polystyrene:
- High thermal and acoustic resistance. Thermal and acoustic conductivity capacity is very low (i.e. Nightclubs, dance halls, etc.).
- Self-extinguishable (fire does not spread): it is completely fireproof - Works with disposable fuel.
- Keeps its shape over the years. Its thermal conductivity does not change, the thermal insulation capacity remains strong over the years.
- It is not hygroscopic. It does not absorb nor accumulate water, even when submerged.
- It does not need any kind of protection when used. Harmless.Rot-proof and not susceptible to fungus and microorganisms
- 100% Recyclable, long-lasting, harmless, inert and ecological material, it does not affect the ozone layer and it is environmentally friendly.
The internal structure is made of pinewood from Switzerland. The sandwich panel interior is made of laminated, washable, scratch-proof Okume/Calabó board.
Once the wall structure has been made, the expanded polystyrene sheets are fixed with a special two-phase adhesive and treated with a vacuum pressing process. This process bonds the different elements of the external walls, to create one element. The purpose of the "vacuum process" is to remove all the internal air from the wall, obtaining a solid, secure wall, with a minimum heat loss. The same process is used to manufacture walk-in freezers, cold storage trucks, aircrafts and yachts.
The external facing material of your choice:
Stucco:stucco, with special plastic paint for external walls, over vacuum pressed marine board.
*Marine board is a plywood of high dimensional strength and stability. It is also resistant to humidity, water, acids, dilute alkali and solvents.
Canexel: Canexel is a Canadian material. It is made of treated high-density wood fibres and epoxy resin, with five coats of paint fired in an oven. No maintenance need.
Once finished we can obtain walls with more than 65mm of thickness.
- Decorative exterior corner cupboards made of marine board, reinforced with colour-lacquered aluminium and anti-filter treatment.
- Large sliding windows made with coloured-lacquered aluminium, double glazing and climalit system.
- External door made with coloured-lacquered aluminium. There are two types depending on the model, two-panel folding or sliding doors, with double glazing and climalit system.
- External lighting with external IP65 wall lamps.
Roofs, Resistant to high loads of snow and wind with maximum insulation.
The roof is made of solid Swiss pinewood lacquered beams. These form a sandwich panel with high-density expanded polystyrene. Next, longitudinal laths are assembled, screwed onto the semi-sandwich structure. Afterwards, insulation is reinforced by placing a fibreglass coat among the laths, the semi-sandwich and the steel roof, achieving a high level of thermal and acoustic insulation.
The tile is manufactured in colour-lacquered, 100% galvanized steel, with a traditional touch.
With great thermal and acoustic insulation.
We offer a choice between continuous (joint free) large aluminium longitudinal gutters, on one or both sides or the installation of corbels.
