Mobile Homes Make Great Vacation Getaways

Did you know that mobile homes make the perfect vacation getaways? It's true. Not only are factory direct mobile homes significantly less expensive than a pre-existing or built-from-scratch house, they come in a variety of sizes and styles. The new mobile homes on the market are so well made and packed with upgrades, they often pass for custom builds. TheMobileHomeStore.com has several retail centers in the United States, where homebuyers can get a behind-the-scenes look at the mobile homes being built and pick out the perfect one for a vacation getaway. Here are a few favorites worth scheduling a visit to see:

Montebello This charming, one-bedroom/one-bathroom cottage would fit right in on a lakefront lot. At 378 square feet, it's also just right for a couple looking for a low-maintenance place for weekend getaways. Plenty of windows, plus a sliding glass door, make these mobile homes feel bigger than they are, as do an open floor plan, vaulted ceilings and optional bay window. Baseboard molding and carpet run throughout the home, while mini-blinds cover the walls. In the kitchen, full-size GE appliances make casual dinners a breeze to make. This model also has a loft option, which provides just enough sleeping space for couples with kids. Factory direct mobiles homes such as this one also come with energy-saving features, keeping the cost of the cottage as a weekend home more than reasonable.

Alpine The log-cabin look of this model of new mobile homes makes them perfect for a weekend retreat in the woods. At 941 square feet, these two-bedroom/two-bathroom mobile homes have a shingle roof, stone chimney and covered front porch. Textured walls with baseboard molding, designer drapes and carpet are standard, as are elongated, water-saver toilets and tile trim around the tubs and countertops in the bathrooms. The kitchen has full-size GE appliances, a deep porcelain sink and ribbed-panel hardwood cabinet doors. Countertops are available in several designer colors, allowing the homebuyer to customize the cooking space. No-wax vinyl flooring covers the kitchen floors, while carpet also available in several designer colors does the job elsewhere. Mini-blinds and designer drapes hang over the windows in this most special of factory direct mobile homes, and the size makes them a great option for families.

Sedona This Southwestern-style model of mobile homes would look right at home in the desert. At 700 square feet, the one-bedroom Sedona offers a bit more room than other one-bedroom mobile homes. It has a flagstone-trimmed porch and chimney outside, and textured walls and vaulted ceilings inside. Special touches in these new mobile homes include six-panel doors with a waterfall trim and deluxe lighting. Baseboard molding runs throughout, as does high-quality flooring: vinyl and designer carpet. Designer drapes and mini-blinds cover the windows. The kitchen has full-size GE appliances, designer countertops and plenty of room to maneuver.
