Manufactured Home Dealers

Manufactured Home Dealers

Overview

The 1,400 manufactured home dealers in the US sell new and/or used manufactured homes, parts, equipment, and related services. Manufactured homes are also known as mobile homes. Product categories include single-section homes and multi-section homes. The majority of sales are for new manufactured homes. The average sales price for a new manufactured home was $71,980 in 2017.

Dependence On Credit

Customers typically rely on third-party lenders to fund manufactured home purchases, and dealers depend on floor-plan financing to fund inventory.

Image Makeover

The manufactured home industry is attempting to move beyond negative images of trailer parks by upgrading units to feel more like site-built homes.
