I love everything about this single wide!

This Single Wide is one of my favorite Craigslist Mobile Home Finds!

This 1998 Clayton has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The asking price was $19,998. It sits on a nicely maintained rented lot in Boulder, Colorado with monthly rent around $587 (plus garbage and sewage).

The home has a great contemporary style that I absolutely love. As soon as I saw this it became one of my all-time favorite Craigslist mobile home finds.

I love the flooring, the pitched ceiling, and the rug! The colors are awesome!

This is an awesome kitchen! The flooring, the color of the walls, and even the layout is magnificent!

This layout is very similar to an all-time favorite mobile home, the Fleetwood Festival. You can read all about the Festival here.

The owners pulled off a green kitchen beautifully!

A Few of our Favorite Remodeling and Decorating Ideas for Manufactured Homes

Pulling off a green kitchen is tough. There is a fine line between cute and, well, not so cute. Using the lighter green for the island cabinets lightens up the space just enough.

Shade trees and a matching building is included.

This home is right up my alley. I love everything about it! For less than $20,000 you could live in a cute home like this Craigslist mobile home find. If the park doesn’t suit you, you can always move it. That’s one of the greatest things about mobile homes, their mobile!

Many thanks to Nicole, a dear reader of MHL. She has so graciously let me know of this home and another that I am working on.  If you find a beautiful manufactured home online please send it to me!

    I am looking for a single wide that I can add to my double wide mobile home. I want to be able to remodel it myself. I just need it to be able to travel. I live in west Tucson, AZ.

    We have a vintage 1950’s mobile home on our property that needs total restoration. I cannot find information on whether you can repair the aluminum exterior. The corners of the home have come apart, allowing much destruction to the wood paneling and floors. I would like to restore, husband wants to replace or tear apart and use the frame. Any thoughts?

      Hi Marilynn,

      Separation is a bad sign and usually means it’s gonna be expensive. There is a point where it just doesn’t make sense to try to restore a trailer. It sounds like you have a Spartan or Airstream (aluminum) and replacing or repairing aluminum is pretty expensive (at least in my opinion). A corner panel for an Airstream can go for $1300. Just manufacturing skins from new aluminum can be half that. If the flooring is gone you will need to replace that as well and you have to make sure you don’t alter the relationship between the unit and the chassis. If it is one of the models above it will have an aluminum frame so that would be salvageable but you are looking at a huge project. With all that said, owning a beautiful vintage mobile home or trailer is awesome! There’s a certain pride that just can’t be described!

      Facebook groups for your specific model will be the most helpful. There are a bunch so you will be able to find projects of all kinds. Let me know how you decide!

    I think you are being overly optimistic to say you can just move a 1998 mobile home. Many parks won’t take a moved home more than a few years old, and the cost of moving an older home could easily exceed the value of doing it.

    I actually found a 3-2 single wide very much like this one for 10k less on Craig’s list. It’s a 1999 Redman New Moon. I’m still in the process of remodeling. Some day it will be ready to show.

    Hi I’m looking for a mobile home to put on my own land. I would be a first time buyer and don’t have much credit. low income family any advice I could look for some help;/

    • Crystal Adkins October 11, 2016 5:32 pm

      Hi Kayla,

      You’ll want to visit your local manufactured home dealers. Be sure to click on the buying and selling tab on the black menu bar and read through a few of the articles before you even visit the first one. These homes can be a great option but its easy to get in over your head or get a less-than-ideal financing deal.

      Best of luck!
