After lots of serious discussions about our future and our budgeting, my DH and I have decided to buy a manufactured home. We've been pretty satisfied and impressed by what we've seen so far. Quality seems quite good and I love all the choices! My first question to other members is.. do you still find the stereotypes rankle?? I was reading a fun article in a well known decorating magazine and was shocked to see the quoter "mobile homes fall apart" It just hit me wrong I guess.. and has diminished some of the pleasure I've had in planning. Even in a fairly rural area such as mine, with lovely manufactured home communities, there seems to still be some stigma. Thoughts?
