Our friend Steve Lancaster, who has contributed some great articles to our site recently, also has a very popular Facebook group named Manufactured Housing and Mobile Homes. Not only is it a great forum for mobile home fans, it is also where we found these online Craigslist mobile homes that we think are a great bargain.
Our love for looking at online mobile homes dates back a long time, so if you haven’t seen one of our all-time favorite Craigslist finds be sure to check it out!
Keep in mind, we are not affiliated with Craigslist or any of the sellers of these homes. We just love to look and talk about mobile homes. We always include the original listing and a couple of pictures of the home. However, remember that although the listings are active now, that can change at any time.
1972 Holly Park Mobile Home For $4500
Our first find is a 1972 Holly Park single wide located in Ohio. From the pictures of this home, it appears to have all the original cabinets, paneling, and built-ins. It also looks to be in very good condition for a home constructed in 1972! Although dated, it offers tons of storage in both the kitchen and the bedroom. Also, it would make a great project for someone who is looking for something small to update and make their own.
1982 Single Wide Mobile Home For $12000
This 1982 Single Wide found in Florida is awesome! It’s smaller than some single wides, at 834 feet, but it makes great use of its space with a nice open layout. Our favorite feature of this home? The kitchen, with its curved layout and plenty of both counter space and cabinets. This is another home that looks to be pretty much in its original condition. Light colored paneling throughout and a neutral palette of cabinets and bathroom fixtures make this a perfect example of a 1980’s model mobile home.
1987 Holiday Manor Mobile Home for $20000
Wow! This 1987 Holiday Manor Mobile Home located in New York has been completely updated inside. Everything down to the electrical and plumbing has been overhauled. Like most single wides this home has an open floor plan and looks to have plenty of cabinets and storage space. We didn’t see any pictures of the exterior on the listing, but there appear to be some nice big windows in both the living room and the bedroom. Natural light combined with the light colored paint of this home makes it appear to be much larger than it is.
1983 Sout Mobile Home For $21900
We found this 1983 Sout Mobile Home located in Florida that features one of our favorite floor plans, a split plan home with a bedroom on each end. According to the listing, it also includes a nice sized glass enclosed “Florida room” which is a great addition to an already nice mobile home. Like most of the other listings we have shared today, this home seems to include most of the original cabinets and fixtures. However, the exterior does look like its been re-sided, probably when the addition was added to the home. This is another home that would be perfect for someone who is looking for a project, wouldn’t take much to update this home.
1981 Liberty Mobile Home For $13900
We really liked this 1981 Liberty Mobile Home located in Florida. It has been completed updated, all the way down to the subfloors. We especially love the laminate flooring, which gives the mobile home a wood floor look without the extra costs. The kitchen appears to have plenty of cabinets and it appears from one of the pictures that they have used a dresser to create an extra cabinet and countertop space between the living room and kitchen. It matches the rest of the kitchen very well. We are big fans of thinking outside the box like this owner did!
About Online Craigslist Mobile Homes And Making Purchases
All of these mobile homes that we have shared today are online Craigslist mobile homes. This seems to be one of the more common ways that people are selling their homes. Of course, you can also find mobile homes for sale through typical realtor sites such as Realtor.com and Zillow. But we have found that older less expensive homes are usually found on sites like Craigslist.
It’s always important to be diligent when thinking of making a purchase from an online seller. Never send money without seeing what you are buying. Also, make sure that you have the mobile home inspected for any unseen problems before purchasing. You want to make sure you are making a wise purchase when it comes to buying a used mobile home. Be sure to take a look at our article Buying A Used Mobile Home that offers some great tips and resources.
