We have been in the mobile home business for years, and thought why not upload videos about something we can relate to and deal with every day.

We have seen the mobile home business come such a long way. In the old days most people referred to mobile homes as a trailer house. However some of the manufactured homes we carry are far from “trailer houses.”

Just do a whole lot of looking around, especially in depth.

These countertops it's gonna be like a lazy, Susan looks like I, really don't want to get off in there, um cabinets.

But I gotta see, yes, it's a lazy, Susan, I.

Also actually just came from another location about 30 minutes from here I got to tour a home that they set up for some customers.

And they were doing something really cool like.

So they had the house setting and then off the back they're like building a whole another station, it's really cool.

It may be on the channel I'll let you know with some text.

But if you haven't seen that video, and it is up telling you telling you telling you, you would really like to see that as well, I think a half to one minute, I know, I kind of gave you a shot, but I want to give you a really close shot.

So you can see that.

And if you notice check out that rope, can you see that rope that we have it kind of comes on around here, I like that.

A lot it's just a very rustic vibes, just uh, like my dad would love this he's, a, you know, cat, big cowboy and uh, you know, kind of say that I am as well, but he's on another level and uh, loves love stuff like this.

So maybe he's watching.

So you got your dining table here, uh.

And you can see they've kind of got this down.

And you can actually pull this up if you needed more chairs.

But they've got it down to kind of give you more walk walk around room through here.

Stainless steel appliances, got the Whirlpool fridge, right here.

I do like these pools on these cabinets it's like I, keep walking away from the kitchen that I end up back y'all are like this guy I'm trying to, oh my goodness.

What what oh is let's do it? Yeah? So I know, this ain't necessarily just a pantry, but I had to throw in the pantry dance because wow, I mean, obviously you've got this area right here, which would be considered a pantry.

But then all of this, you got a electrical outlet there.

You've got your breaker box.

Oh yeah.


Remember, these these door, handles, Let's, uh, let's, see, I don't have taken my shoes off.

But yeah, we can still be here it'd been raining earlier.

So with the with the land kind of going down like that, it makes this porch be up, very high I like that a lot.

I mean, you can step out here.

So peaceful, this is definitely out in some country.

Nice, little fire pit.

They've got you could tell they've got this place set up nice all right.

Let's head back in.

We got a lot more to see.

Okay, we're back in.

We got to start checking out some bedrooms, because we still got to go down there and see that basement.

Yeah, let's see, oh, we got a bath I'll, tell you what let's go to this bedroom? First, we've got us a mini split right here.

We walk into a bedroom.

Yeah, you're gonna see this Pond, just throughout I like, uh, notice that in like all the rooms you got these remotes.

As soon as you walk in, you got a remote here for a mini split.

Oh I've got to give get y'all a close-up of this I like this this trim.

And then the way you have these kind of like built in on top of that looks beautiful all right.

So I'm, not going to go into either closets.

Just because of privacy measures I, don't think I don't want anybody doing that if I tore my house for people to see on YouTube so I'm, not going to do that, but and I'm sure they wouldn't even mind, but let's just we're, just not gonna do that.

Okay, step out of there.

Now, let's take a look at this bathroom.

This is our first bath of the tour.

We got these same countertops in here.

We've got a pocket door going into this bath foreign.

They have a model called The.

Laramie that's got a second level and it's got this shower upstairs on that second level and I talked about it, um.

But like this is not like I, don't know, what is that stuff that you would say like in an RV that's kind of like is it like plexiglass or something I? Don't know? But this is not that.

This is straight glass.

That's like somehow bent I, don't, even know how that's possible, but very very upgraded, very nice walk into here.

So this is like a this is this is like where they the fellas that come in here.

Oh got the study that's cool got you another mini split in here? It's always good.

When you see, you got the good book right here.

Come in here and get you some peace.

I mean, yeah, do a little working out if you need to and I like these vaulted ceilings, a lot all right now.

Let's go down here to the main bedroom.

As we come on down to the main room.

We've got the bay we'll get down there.

But I didn't really show you much of this little like coffee station that you have right here may your coffee, kick in before reality.

It does, oh okay.

I got you, yeah.

So they get this sliding door here that can be shut.

And you know, just in case, you're like potentially looking at getting this house, let me shut that just so you like I, just kind of wondered what that would look like there you go, but I'm gonna leave it open because that's how it was when I came in here.

And this comes in too the main bedroom.


This is a very big bedroom.

You get a lot of space in here foreign.

So behind this door is going to be like a nice storage closet for you.

And then, yep, here is our main bed.

We've got another mini split in here with the vaulted ceilings as well and I'm, not going to go into their closet.

But the doors open so I kind of give you just a quick look.

They have a very uh, put together in there.

If Caitlyn's watching she's like well, the reason are ours isn't is because of you, but which she is correct, but ours definitely doesn't look that good.

We got double sinks in here.

I really like these faucets, same countertops that we've seen throughout the rest of the house and these modular homes.

And what they're building here at Hilltop is just ma'am, it's something that I I haven't toured, really since last year and or I hadn't for sure toured any other there since last year, but I hadn't, really toured anything like this.

Um, not long ago, you know, I toured that one back at home that a guy was setting up.

You know, was kind of along the same lines.

This is their shower tub.

Combo right here very nice.

But obviously it was a lot smaller.

This house is crazy, big I'll have some size of square footage and everything for y'all, especially in the description.

Oh we got that sliding door, make sure you that's kind of got a different slide on it all right? So the only thing we have left to do is head down to that basement.


Now, obviously, you know, if you're gonna set one of these up on a basement, you're gonna have to do most of that yourself, I, really don't know, the ins and outs of that, um, maybe they could depending on where it's going to be set and everything, but I just want to show it to you since this.

One is on a basement kind of show you what that would look like if you did do that just keep all that in mind let's go check it out I, just like when you walk in you look.

And you see all that like I'm like intrigued I'm like what is down there, I love this handrail that you have coming down here.

The steps look, wonderful, I, come down here and I really just looked in here.

I didn't, even look all the way down that direction.

Oh, my gosh.

This is.

This is a huge area.

Hey, I, peed, I, I, check I, see the wakeboard there I like that if y'all don't know, I'll wake board, a little bit I can do, uh a back row.

You know, what I'm saying, that's, all I got though I, really ain't even done one of those in a few years because I'm like 30 something now I don't want to get hurt.

But yeah, there's.

Those doors we kind of look looked at for just a glimpse.

We stepped around back.

Let me turn right here.

So you can see.

Wow, this is probably where I would be most evenings doing something as it looks like the husband kind of does the same I could be wrong.

The wife could be down here.

Just as much very cool.

Look at these beams right here, I like how they were able to put their water heater down here.

That's nice, I got the washer and dryer and everything man y'all share this video will you please share it with someone don't? Forget to subscribe hit notification Bell.

If you haven't and uh drop a like on the video, if you if you will that'll help us out tremendously and stick around I'm going to get into some more information I'll, try to what I'll do is when I go home, I'll, try to gather a lot of stuff for y'all to be able to help you out and uh, hopefully they'll, provide you more information.


So I know, the tour's been extremely long so I'm going to be very brief here.

But I want to talk about some things that I think will really help y'all.

And I know, this has been set on some properties, kind of maybe a little hard to understand, but they do have a dealership.

They have these home set up where you can look at.

And then you kind of, uh, get the home, customize the weight you'd like to do certain things, and they deliver them and set them up and it's Hilltop structures.

You can check out their website, it'll, pop up just a little bit of their website.

But you can check them out to find out all the information.

Uh, all these homes are built in-house, it's, pretty cool.

Well, I wouldn't say, all of them, but most of them they're built there, uh, so it's, pretty awesome it's, not something that I could do a whole lot of so I was grateful to got I got the video some more, uh.

But yeah.

So this has right here is the Rocky Mountain three.

They have a Rocky Mountain too, and they have a Rocky Mountain three.

This is the Rocky Mountain three.

This is the third one.

This is the Trace, but I'll have more information in the description for you.

And then I, just like I said, I recommend checking out their website.

And then we have some links in there.

You can check out if you want to uh, but yeah, I really the next.

The last thing I want to talk about is, oh sorry.

The videos come out, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and, um, okay.

Real brief I.

I've probably got like six or seven locations that I'm gonna be hitting over the next like two three weeks.

So man, y'all just stay tuned to the channel.

There's gonna be some wild stuff that I've never got to tour some brand new models.

And then some manufacturers I've never got to tour, uh, so it's, the next WoW, the next month month or so it's gonna be wild.

But yeah, uh, really I.

Just want to get to some, uh, you know, retail estimated pricing.

Now, this is what they provided me at Hilltop structure, but keep in mind they're only going to cover as far as these modular homes are really going to cover, uh, you know within their area.

Now, the the the park models that I've toured there, and the ones that I have coming, they kind of ship them out or whatever.

So this is what they told me I'm gonna pop it up right here in just a second, but I'll just read what says this price right here.

Uh, obviously, then the foundation is going to be extra, um, that's, just the upstairs part with the mini split and everything, and it obviously doesn't include the back deck.

But it does include the front porch.

So basically your home and, um, yeah, and then everything inside of the home, um, but okay, right here.

Great idea on what this home is going to be going for now.

Let me head out I'm, trying I gotta get this video under 20 minutes, I hope I did so I will see you right back here.

Thursday night, it's gonna be a special tour, something I think every one of you like to see 6, 45, Central, Time, God, bless you all see ya.
