How do I prepare pad for installation of mobile home?

I have purchased my first park and am ready to fill vacant lots. I am well versed in prepping the utility connections but am looking for cost effective suggestions as to how to prepare the pad. Do I pour concrete runners? Do I just compact the dirt? Other options?

It depends on what state you’re in. Each state has its own law on what the mobile home has to sit on. In Texas, it’s dirt. In Ohio, it’s concrete. Call your state mobile home association (MHA) and get the facts on what the options are.
