Top 6 Choice Locations to Put Your Manufactured Home

Location. Location. Location. There are certain non-negotiable qualities and features that we need in our homes. When you add in finding the perfect location, it’s next to impossible to get exactly what you want. Whether your primary concern is convenience, scenic views or a combination of the two, we understand your troubles.


We’ve gone to great lengths to make sure our home buyers’ homes not only fulfill their unique needs and styles, but also sit on the landscape they desire.


We know that it is possible to seamlessly fuse a great home and a prime location together, so when you find your perfect home location, our home centers can help you find contractors to put your dream home there on a safe, durable foundation.


Our dedicated team once pulled a customer’s brand new home across the John Day River in Kimberly, Oregon, to ensure they received the perfect combination of a gorgeous home in a fantastic location with mountainous views.


Recently, our Clayton Homes of Snowflake team in Arizona helped a customer move their home to this scenic view.

Check out our list of locations that we think are great places to call home. Before you settle on a location for your home, however, talk to your local home center and final site construction team as not all land is suitable for home placement.  Ask your retailer about site installation requirements.


So where can you put a manufactured home? It will depend on local building and zoning requirements, but there are lots of places where you can place a new manufactured home. Here are some great ideas for your new home location!


Sandy Beaches

Whether you enjoy the grainy, white beaches of Pensacola, Florida, or the quiet beaches of Matagorda, Texas, near the beach would be the perfect spot for your next home!



Peaceful Lakes

Can you tell we love the water? If you also enjoy the lazy, laid-back lifestyle that comes with lakeside living, make your next home a lake house. Lake activities, such as swimming and fishing, can be right in your backyard from lakes like Lake Toxaway in North Carolina, to the Great Lakes in the Midwest!


Homey Farmland

Farm Manufactured House and Barn Collage


You don’t have to give up the farming lifestyle if it’s your passion! Manufactured or modular homes sit perfectly on farmland across the country from Oklahoma to Indiana to Iowa, no matter the acre count.



Secluded Woods

Woods Sheltered Location Manufactured Home


Make your retreat the natural privacy of large oak, birch or evergreen trees. Secluding yourself from the noisy city life in a dense forest can be made easier with a modular or manufactured home.



Flat, Open Acres of Land

Manufactured Home Wide Open Field Location


A mobile or manufactured home will settle well on a large, open property. You can watch the sunrise and sunset easily from your front porch without any hills, neighbors, buildings or mountains blocking your view.



Enormous Mountains

Smokey Mountains Sunset View

Overlooking valleys and evergreen trees that grace the mountainside, your new home could be a serene mountain house snuggled into the Smoky Mountains or the Rocky Mountains. The opportunity to explore trails right in your backyard can appeal to the beginner or most experienced hiker.


Once you have a home in mind, you can work with a realtor to find the perfect location.
