Don't live in one myself, but my brother built a "regular" home in California, then thought the same thing you did. He bought acreage in Oregon & had a new modular home built/brought/planted on it. He tells me he will never do it again, as everything looks good at first, but the quality just isn't there. The home is only 6 years old and he feels like he's repairing or replacing too much too soon. He says he got the "best" they had to offer, but is now not too thrilled with the outcome. He's making it work - likes to tinker, so keeps him busy. He does say this is not his last house and the next will not be modular. But this is all second hand. I cannot tell you from personal experience.

Im also hearing horror stories about the manufactured homes, but then you talk to people that are living in them for 20 years or so and they had no problems, so i guess i just have to take a chance. Thank god my husband is gonna be a DR. so i can buy a site built home later on. Nice talking with you.
