    There is no difference between a mobile or a brick-and-mortar home. It depends on the area to be covered and the material the home is made of.

    In my 70m^2 apartment, made out of brick and plaster, I use two wireless antennae (not mesh, but sharing the same WiFi controller), and that's more than enough; I could probably make do with one if it supported 4 SSIDs.

    Mine is not metal. The Verizon modem/router in above the fridgerator. There are not any walls between the kitchen and where most of the internet is used.

    I don’t know the area it needs to cover, but it sounds like you don’t need a mesh system. Instead, placing your modem/router/AP combo unit in a more central location, and away from the heavy appliances (microwave, oven, fridge) should help a lot.

    If you want to use a mesh system wirelessly, you will need a good wireless signal to the “root” device, which involves a good central placement for it.

    I doubt it. The typical router should be able to provide coverage for it.

    Agreed. Now if it’s a double/triple wide with add on’s, you might want to add one additional access point. Other than that, move the router to a more central location.

    I live in a 2- story house with Ubiquity network and 2 access points, one per floor. I recently added a 3rd access point on the back patio for the “patio therapy / movie streaming” nights.

    Appreciate the replies. Decided on the replies read here. I agree from that I will not invest in the mesh router.
