    You have some basic …
    You have some basic options also to add to your list, like the foundation you choose for the house to sit on, and even better is the option to put SERIOUS HURRICANE ANCHORS under the home which will give you and your family a big advantage in stormy weather that stickbuilt wont match, absolutely. Ever.

    Then plan your layout of the foundation to take account of the site’s wind/weather features, ours doesn’t sit parallel to the street and benefits from boating ideas on orientation.

    The other key is to …
    The other key is to get to know the sales people because some are hugely more knowledgeable and helpful. Then look at timing for placement since doing a winter or wetness time setup is an invitation to disastrous working damage to landscaping and drainage. Most of these choices are in your own control. Buying stickbuilt is way less controllable because of the more extended times, weather and other variables.

    Ask how many …
    Ask how many repetitions of the design the factory has already built? And make sure the one you will get comes from a factory where the kinks in the design have been worked out at the construction quality end. Otherwise the trim-stuff will be not so well fitted and will require that you go through the home thoroughly DURING THE WARRANTEE PERIOD and report what is poorly fitted. And a manufacturer with a good reputation and good work force relations is also figurable.

    The other thing …
    The other thing this analysis misses on savings is the amount of clever engineering that goes into the BASIC design. So that material waste is minimized. In stickbuilt homes you pay for nearly double the materials you actually used. Engineering and waste control planning.

    Part of the quality …
    Part of the quality is in the choices made by the owner at order time.  Better yet, it was much less expensive to add quality structural and insulation features than the goosey luxury ‘enhancements’. 2×6 construction was easy on the bill.
    We opted out of the rugs so that we could put our own radiant floor in with special features. No problem.

    I would rather have a cob home made of clay, sand, straw, water, and earth. They are actually cheaper then a double wide and I think they even look better.

    Back in 1994, I was junior in high school. I worked for Cavalier Manufactured homes in Addison, AL. I was the guy who “red flagged” all the mistakes and goofs. I can honestly say that I would live in the homes that I help to build. Just make sure that you upgrade the insulation, and go with an neutral wall covering and you will be fine.

    How old is this …
    How old is this video? The trivia question/answer says 19 million is 8% of the population. Not counting illegals, our nation’s current population exceeds 300 million, making 19 million closer to 6.5%. Also suspect far more than 19 million live in manufactured homes nationwide. Likely that number in just a few southern states.

    @MrShannon888 > ‘.. more recent ones ..’

    Again, it comes down to cost. Site-built or manufactured, budget homes are going to be cheaply made, with premium homes much less likely so.

    My mother is still living in a premium mobile home built in the late 50′s. It was well-made with solid floor joists & framing, wood paneling & trim, and wiring & plumbing adequate even today. No repairs beyond routine maintenance (replacing worn carpets or appliances, etc).

    @ryanb788 > ‘.. cheaply made ..’

    Site-building does not ensure quality. Indeed, I’ve seen new site-built homes with poorly spaced floor joists & framing and cardboard boxes used for air conditioning ducts. It really comes down to cost. Site-built or manufacturered, budget homes are going to be cheaply made, with premium homes much less likely so. However, in either case (budget or premium), the manufacturered home is going to cost less.

    @ryanb788 I own a 1992 and all the electrical boxes are attached to interior 2×4′s and exterior 2×6 walls. Mine also has 3/8 sheetrock, but that is generally standard for mobile homes due to weight restrictions. Sounds like you had a poor manufacturer.

    I am not sure, but I think that the more recent ones, are built a lot like they are claiming, but probably only since around 2000,and up..again I am not sure,and most people probably don’t know unless they build them, because the newer ones, are less likely to need repair,any time soon..

    I can’t sit here …
    I can’t sit here and say that there has not been improvements in mobile homes. Yes they are built better than they were back in 1993 but you can not sit here and tell me that a manufactured home are built the same as a on site home in reguards to quality of material and workmanship. A mobile home has all the potential to be nearly better than a on site built home due to the fact that you are building it in a controlled enviroment. thanks for the comment.
