    Soils conditions? Weight of structure above? Depth and width of the foundation? Is it raised above the flood plane? Slab on grade? Number and size of rebars in the footing?

    A regular foundation would not be allowed. Must be built per the the Mobile Home installment instructions which usually requires piers and tie downs.
