Atterbury auctioning 200 mobile homes


Follow The Republic:


If you’re looking to buy a mobile home you might be able to nab one for as little as $25.

Camp Atterbury, the military training ground near Edinburgh, will be auctioning off more than 200 duplex mobile homes this summer.

The mobile homes can be bought to live in, or to be sold for scrap metal. Bidders are asked to look at photos of the homes before the auction, since some need more work than others, according to a news release. The mobile homes are 60 feet long, 14 feet wide and have a kitchen, bathroom, furnace and washer and dryer connections, and people can view photos of the homes online before bidding.

The homes were previously used to house soldiers who were preparing to deploy overseas. They are no longer needed since deployment training slowed in 2013.

About 175 mobile homes from Camp Atterbury were auctioned last year.

The first group of 51 mobile homes went up for auction starting Wednesday, with a starting bid of $25 on www.govliquidation.com. Bidding ends at 5 p.m. Friday.

Winning bidders are responsible for towing the mobile homes from Camp Atterbury.
