Carjelk..have a look around the Torrevieja area as you can currently buy a 1 and 2 apartment for around €35,000 ...if you do go for a mobile home don't forget to factor in the yearly site fee's and the insecurity of having a mobile home that you will be ordered to take off the site when it becomes a certain age...as i said before I pay €380 per year for  site  maintenance fees and council tax for a 2 Bed Villa on a gated community and that's it .

Carjelk ...if you intend to live in Spain for 10 months out of the year then you will need to become a Tax resident of Spain...as from January 2021 UK citizens will only be permitted to live a maximum of 90 days in any 180 days ...so basically that means 3 months continues stay then you need to leave for 3 months up to a maximum of 6 months in and calender year ...you will also require full health insurance for the duration of your stay ..as the UK EHIC card will no longer be accepted in Spain or any other EU country.

Carjelk...you have made a wise decision to keep your home in the UK ..I have also kept my home in the UK...I have seen so many Brit's over the last 15 years of ownership in Spain .. mostly early retired that have sold the house and the family silver in the UK to chase the dream ..in my experience the honeymoon with Spain tends to fizzle out after a couple of years of living in a full time dream as well as running out of money ..what people don't seem to understand is that the only things that are cheaper in Spain are council tax and booze & fags everything else is either more expensive or the same price as the UK so it doesn't take to long to run out of money especially if you are under UK retirement age living full time in Spain off your savings .. when I first read your original post I thought you were looking at full-time retirement in Spain ..so now I understand that you are only looking for a holiday home I think a mobile home would be a great Idea..so I wish you well and good luck with the search.

Why Would you even consider a mobile home as apposed to bricks and mortar... have a look around the property for sale on the Costa Blanca ...at this moment you can buy. apartment for around €45,000...I have a small villa in Los Balcones on a gated community I pay €180 per year community fee's for the upkeep of the shared pool and community in general and €200 council tax =€380 per year and that's it ..as I said before have a good look around and way up the long term overheads ... another problem you are up against is from January 2021 you are going to need a private health insurance for both of you ... good luck always think twice and part with your money once.

"Hi I have just got back from Spain after spending a week at my holiday home I have not been over to my villa for 9 months due to business commitments hear in the U.K ,I was shocked to find that only 2 villas out of 120 had full time occupants and all the rest where locked up it reminded me of a ghost town why are so many expats leaving Spain."
