55+ Manufactured Homes California...
A True Paradise
Manufactured Homes in California can be paradise. I
consider California an ideal retirement state for climate, ease of
finding fresh food and year-round outdoor activities. These communities are so tempting because you can find resale homes for much less than $100,000 in ocean, desert or lake locales. They can be for vacations, snow-birding or permanent.
