3 Mobile Homes California Residents Will Love

News / Consumer

The mobile homes California offer its residents come in a variety of architectural styles. That being said, certain styles look more at home on the West Coast than others do. Let’s take a look at three mobile homes that complement the surroundings in this part of the country:

Champion Crossings Estate Series Finch: this 399-square-foot mobile home features a wood siding upgrade that resembles a log cabin exterior, making it a perfect fit for a wooded lot in California. The windows and vaulted ceilings of this home, which has one bedroom and one bathroom, help it feel sunny and spacious. The kitchen comes with a standard setup or a U-shaped design, plus full-size appliances, including an 18-cubic-foot GE double-door refrigerator, a 30-inch GE gas range and 30-inch lighted hood range. Laminate countertops with beveled edge and 2-inch backsplash complement cabinetry in maple or oak. Brushed-chrome hardware, plush carpet and mini-blinds can be found throughout. An optional front porch, door and numerous windows further add to the California feel. Mobile homes such as these provide just enough room for a single senior or retired couple.

Redman Classic Series Berkley: more than 1,387 square feet make and a ranch design this a desirable mobile home for a family living in California. The floor plan features three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus large dining and living areas. Optional upgrades include bay windows and a covered porch with railing. The spacious kitchen has ample storage space on the counters and in cabinets, plus in a 30-inch pantry. Whirlpool appliances — a 18-cubic-foot refrigerator, a 30-inch gas range and a 30-inch lighted hood range — come in the kitchens of these mobile homes, as do laminated countertops in designer colors and ceramic tile edging and backsplash. Huntington Brass fixtures are found in both the kitchen and bathrooms. Other designer touches include a chandelier in the dining room and additional designer lighting. Congoleum vinyl flooring and carpet cover the floors, while mini-blinds and residential drapes on the windows provide privacy. Not only does the Berkley blend into the California scenery, it makes an excellent investment home, thanks to its spacious interior.

Redman Santa Fe Series Hidalgo: this model proves one of the most in-demand mobile homes California has to offer due to a Southwestern-style stucco exterior that looks right at home in both desert and Alpine settings. And its 1,387 square feet appeals to families and couples alike. A covered porch running the full width of the mobile home also gives it curb appeal. The large kitchen comes with a U-shaped design, plus a 9-inch deep porcelain sink, cultured marble windowsill, and full-size refrigerator, gas range and lighted hood range. Laminate countertops with beveled edge and 2-inch backsplash come with ceramic tile edging and backsplash. In the bathrooms, designer touches such as Huntington Brass fixtures, deluxe beauty lights and decorator tub drapes can be found. These mobile homes also have the chandelier in the dining room and additional designer lighting, plus Congoleum vinyl flooring, carpet, mini-blinds and residential drapes.

These are just three of the mobile homes California settings prove perfect for. To find additional options, search online for “mobile homes California.” Certain manufacturers provide floor plans and photo galleries on their websites, allowing you to research the different models and options before you see them in person. This helps you to narrow your options and not feel overwhelmed when shopping for mobile homes.

Once you have a list of floor plans you would like, schedule a visit to a mobile home center near you to see them up close and to take the factory tour. All manufacturers of mobile homes must adhere to the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974, and you will want to see how the manufacturer you purchase from builds its homes, from start of construction through the application of finishing touches.

Also be sure to inquire about all available upgrades. Mobile homes retain their value much better than custom-builds and tract homes in California, so upgrading throughout allows you to not only enjoy the additional features while you live in the home but also to not feel they were a waste when you do eventually sell the home. Ask about items such as hardwood floors, wainscoting, additional windows, stone fireplaces, and appliance and bathroom upgrades. For example, a bathroom upgrade can add elongated toilets throughout the home and a separate fiberglass shower to a master bathroom.
