Future plans

So after much deliberation, I want a saltwater. But I'm a go big or go home kinda girl, so I want the biggest tank I can get!

Here's the catch, for 500$ I can get my own mobile home and never have to pay rent again! Cheap living is always best when your a college kid! So my question is what is the biggest sized tank you would feel comfortable putting on a trailer floor? Or I've heard of people bracing their floors to support big tanks, good idea or bad?

Thoughts/opinions?

Brace, if not I'll have to check into bracing. At least it's easily accessible under there. Plus I'm looking at 125's that's my goal at least.

What year is the trailer. 95% of all trailers have steel frames in the middle because that's how they are moved
