So you spent thousands trying to learn how to invest in real estate and then ran out and tried to re-invent mobile home investing based upon a free online success story you read.
Reay, Fire, Aim.
So now you are ready to aim. Ok, not a problem. You are in luck. For your current target, Lonnies $30 book will get you started. I will even go so far as to recommend his second $30 book while your at it.
After finding out the nuances of your current deal and learning how to make it and the others that follow, more profitable, buy the home study course.
I do understand you have spent thousands on real estate courses but truth be told, I don’t think you could spend a grand if you bought all the mobile home courses.
Will you need them all now? No. Let profits from your successes pay for future courses.
One does not go to college for 4 years and walk in as CEO the next day of the fortune 500 company. Likewise one cannot expect to buy courses in real estate investing and expect to walk into mobile home deals tomorrow and invest mistake free.
Hang in there. Knowledge does not make anyone rich. The application of knowlege does.

Ditto what Todd said. I don’t know what books/seminars you’ve spent your thousands on, but I can tell you this – based on your question, if you DON’T buy Lonnie’s $30 book you will make many mistakes exceeding that amount on your first deal.
I for one am not willing to sit and type out the steps necessary to get started, since all this and more are covered clearly in the book.
