How do I find a home factory?


#1

We have a dealer’s license which means we can buy factory-direct. How do we find out where the closest factories are (and contact information)? All the home builder’s websites direct us to street dealers, which is not what we want.

This is for southern Michigan.

Clayton may be your best bet. It’s in northern Indiana near goshen/ Elkhart area. I think they make the single sides in a town called wakarusa.

Clayton, CAVCO and Champion are the three largest, but there are a number of smaller manufacturers that produce good products like Legacy and Adventure. Remember that 21st Mortgage will now finance all makes.

This may not be successful, but you could ask the dealers who their contacts are. If you go ‘outside your area’, some may be willing to share info, if they don’t see you as competition.
