Not Your Grandma's Mobile Home - Modern Manufactured Home Exteriors

I’m sure when many people think of a Clayton home they immediately think of a vintage trailer, but I’m here to tell you times have changed!


To go along with the innovation that’s occurred across much of the manufactured housing industry, many Clayton Built® homes have a modern exterior style that reflects the stunning custom features inside each home. I’ve put together a list of five modern manufactured homes for you to compare as well as to prove that today's manufactured homes are not your grandma’s mobile home.


Modern manufactured homes don’t look like trailers at all. They are not the narrow, mobile homes you would traditionally think of with flat roofs and exterior styles that look far more like RVs than homes. With different roof pitch options, gables, porches, siding styles and large windows, they are elegant homes that offer many exterior choices, even varying to reflect your local region.


1. The Jaxson

Manufactured Home Classic Exterior


The Jaxson model by SEhomes not only has a nice roof pitch with a front porch and gable, it also has numerous features such as an open floor plan, split bedrooms, a bonus room and a kitchen island. The Jaxson model is a great home option for you and your family!


2. The Super 60

Manufactured Home High Roof Pitch


The large windows, entryway gable and classic exterior aren’t the only parts of The Super 60 model by Norris that you’ll love. Inside, you’ll find a breakfast bar in the kitchen for your eggs and bacon as you start your day. Then you can work from home at the built-in computer station!


3. The Hancock

Manufactured Home Exterior


With The Hancock model by Clayton, you get an affordable home with numerous feature options to pick from to fit your family’s lifestyle, such as choosing between a built-in entertainment center or fireplace in the family room.


4. The 4710 Rocketeer 7632

Manufactured Home Exterior


Inside the 4710 Rocketeer 7632 model by Clayton, you’ll find an open floor plan with more than 2200 sq. ft. and double sinks in the master bathroom suite. Enjoy customizing the classic exterior with siding color options and a beautiful gable.


5. The Captain Jack

Beautiful Manufactured Home Exterior Real House


Last, but most definitely not least is the Captain Jack model by Norris. Boasting a gorgeous exterior with a covered porch and exterior stone work, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home has plenty of room to host guests inside and outside.


These were just a few of my favorite modern manufactured homes. Hopefully they have shown you that Clayton Built® homes are real houses, not your grandma's mobile home. Manufactured homes have come a long way and the exterior and interior options are made for families like yours to enjoy for years to come.
