Hello Urena,
Your question regarding remodeling a mobile home is a very broad subject, covering all parameters of carpentry, plumbing, electrical...well, you get the picture.
If your mobile home is pre 1980's, the storage drawers are probably mad e of 1/4" plywood paneling, as are the walls. If you have minimal tools, it is not difficult to rebuild the drawers using yellow woodworkers glue and brads. If your skill levels (and your tools) permit then proceed with replacing the drawers with stro nger units. Brace the existing cabinet carcass with 1x2 strips and install metal drawer slides. NEVER cut any wall brace during your remodeling as virtually every wall in a aluminum shell coach is a bearing wall; that is a wall which supports the struc ture or frame. At any rate, some simple repairs, followed by primer and finish coats should made your mobile home look great! If you have any questions, just drop me a line. Good Luck!
