It’s been a while since we have shared any of the newly manufactured home models that are hitting the lots so we thought we would see what some of the new models are featuring as far as designs are concerned. All three homes shared today offer something different, and they may not be standard but they are showing up in more floor plans recently.

The Paris From Champion
The Paris is one of the manufactured home models from the Champion Homes Ascend line. It includes 3 bedrooms/2 baths with the option of a 4th bedroom or office. This particular model has a couple of odd design placements but we still like the general feel of the home. For instance, the home has a built-in back porch, which is great, but the entrance to the porch is between the two barn doors in the main living space. This makes for a very busy wall area!
Also, maybe the barn doors might not have been the best choice for the overall look of the home. Of course, they are great space savers but they don’t seem to fit into the overall feel the designers were going for. We do like the wall used to separate the kitchen from the hallway, and although the home is smaller, the versatility of the office/4th bedroom gives it more flexibility. One listing we saw, had that room set up as the dining room which would be a great way to add more space to the living room and kitchen area.
We found one dealer who had a listing price of $164,996 for this home listed on clearance. Of course, that wouldn’t include delivery and setup but for a home this size with drywall, recessed lighting, barn doors, and an add-on porch, it is a pretty good deal! The addition of the exposed beam look also adds to the appeal of the interior decor and in the clearance listing, the colors of the cabinets, beams, and other accents were changed which really changed the look of the home. That’s one of the great things about manufactured homes, they offer the same flexibility as site-built homes, you can customize just about any part of the home to fit your personal style.
The Huxton II From Clayton
The Huxton II is a 4 bedroom/2 bath double wide with over 2200 square feet of living space. Its base price starts at the $240,000s which according to Clayton’s website means: Base model starting prices do not include available options or required delivery & installation. The installed price will be higher.
From the floor plan rendering, we can’t make out what might be optional in this particular manufactured home model, however, there are a couple of features that we really love. First, the three full baths are a winner, especially if your family is large enough to need four bedrooms. Second, we love the large master walk-in closet you can access from the laundry room and master suite. And, lastly, we love the large open living space that separates the master suite from the other bedrooms. This is a terrific floor plan for a family.
Tradewinds II By Palm Harbor
Take a look at the features of this triple-wide manufactured home:
- Built-in front porch
- Spacious master suite with attached sunroom
- In-home office
- Bonus activity room
- Full utility room with shelving & mud bench
- Full-sized eat-in island with built-in wine rack in the kitchen
Palm Harbor homes are typically on the pricier end of manufactured home models and this one is definitely no exception. With 4 bedrooms/3 baths and over 2700 square feet, this triple-wide has a price tag of somewhere between $331,078 – $397,335. That price would include site prep, delivery, and setup. Now, that’s a hefty price tag, but this is also a lot of home and includes tons of amazing design features.
Manufactured home models can pretty much be customized into whatever meets your needs. From basic off-the-lot models to all the customizations and upgrades you can think of, you can make your mobile home into whatever you want it to be.
Also, if you place a home like this on a permanent foundation on land that you own, it becomes real estate just like a site-built home. That means it gains equity just like any other property. Manufactured home models like these may seem like a big investment but they will have the same long-term value as any other home, as long as it is taken care of.
