Which Manufactured Home Brand is Best for My Family?

Mobile homes are becoming more popular than ever thanks to innovations in the industry, more public knowledge of their advantages, and the rising costs of stick-built houses. These days, there are so many different models of manufactured homes that it can be hard to know which is best for you. 

Check out our breakdown of the different manufactured home brands we offer:

TRU Manufactured Homes: Affordable for First-Time Homebuyers

TRU manufactured homes are very popular with the families we work with, and it isn’t hard to understand why. The brand is approachable for first-time homebuyers, with practical features and a budget-friendly price tag. The TRU Homes brand is part of Clayton mobile home manufacturers, but it focuses on simple, affordable single-wide and double-wide mobile homes ideal for couples and small families. 

TRU Homes are cost-effective because they utilize low-overhead building processes to create streamlined, space-saving mobile homes. The company invests in bulk materials, saving on construction costs to lower housing prices for families. By buying in bulk, they can maintain quality in the final product without hurting your wallet. 

TRU Homes are the most affordable brand we offer, starting with the Bliss model at under $45,000. It is a 765-square-foot, single-wide mobile home offering two bedrooms and one bathroom, ideal for singles, couples, or small families. Larger families may be interested in the Grand model, which has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. 

Regardless of the specific floor plan, you can’t go wrong with a TRU manufactured home. They offer an outstanding balance between affordability and luxury. Though they are trendy among first-time homebuyers, anyone can benefit from these high-quality mobile homes’ budget-friendly price tag and streamlined design.

  • Streamlined, simple designs
  • The most affordable option
  • Compact for singles, couples, or smaller families 
  • Single-wide and double-wide floorplans available 

Clayton Manufactured Homes: Excellent Energy Efficiency 

Clayton is a leader in the mobile home industry. This brand is always at the forefront of innovation for manufactured homes, which is why it is one of the most trusted manufacturers. One area in which they are especially impressive is energy efficiency. Clayton even received a 2021 Energy Star Manufactured Housing Builders Market Leader Award from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)! 

Clayton Homes focuses on building sustainable manufactured homes. In all their decisions, they consider the environment, from choosing recycled materials to energy-efficient appliances. They keep their carbon footprint lower during the construction process by keeping drafts to a minimum, staying on a tight schedule, and reusing materials whenever possible. 

Many of our families are concerned about utility costs. After all, buying a mobile home means an upfront investment; you don’t want your monthly expenses to rise unsustainably. When you invest in a Clayton manufactured home, you can rest easy knowing your home was designed to be as energy-efficient as possible. 

Clayton mobile homes offer many different floorplan options. One popular single-wide mobile home model is the Vision model, which is 1216-square-feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. In terms of higher-end models, the Nellie is a spacious 4 bedrooms, 2 baths option. Because they offer larger models than TRU Homes, they are a better choice for larger families or couples looking for extra space for an office or guest room. 


  • Reputable brand
  • Superior energy-efficiency
  • A wider variety of mobile home models
  • Saves money on utilities 
  • Sustainable building practices 

Fleetwood Manufactured Homes: Spacious Floor Plans for Families 

Last but certainly not least, we offer Fleetwood manufactured homes in single-wide and double-wide floorplans. Fleetwood models are top-rated among the big families we work with because they emphasize spaciousness with a diverse selection of floorplans. Fleetwood Homes are exceptionally durable, so homebuyers can feel secure knowing they are making an investment that will last for years to come. 

The double-wide mobile home from Fleetwood, the Berkshire, comes in several floorplans. The largest one offers 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, and an open kitchen, offering plenty of room for the family to gather. The living room is emphasized in many of these models so that you can comfortably host the next family gathering in your new home. For those looking for a single-wide mobile home, the Weston is the Fleetwood manufactured home for you.
