Why Mobile Homes are Perfect for People with Mobility Impairments?

Updated: Mar 26

Many Americans with disabilities are aware of the need for affordable, quality homes. Modern manufactured homes have safety features and amenities that are superior to similar site-built homes, with prices up to 30-40% cheaper.

Many manufactured homes offer floor plans that can be customized to meet the needs of people with disabilities. It is important to maintain the buyer's vision of independence and quality of life. You can choose from a variety of floor plans to decide what modifications are possible to address your handicap needs.

These are the top reasons mobile homes are great for people with mobility impairments.


Cheaper than stick built home is the main reason people with mobility impairments seek out manufactured homes, regardless of their age.

Affordable housing is essential for all people, but retirees without a good reason to be worried are at high risk of sudden rent increases.

Mobile homes built to ADA standards can save money in many other ways. You don't need to worry about heat escaping through leakages, which can lead to energy cost savings.


For handicapped persons, social interaction is essential to their health and well-being. Mobile and manufactured housing communities may focus on taking care of your well-being by socializing and fun and safe activities.

For disabled people who are unable to climb stairs, mobile or manufactured housing is the best option. They have full access to their home and are not restricted in any way.

For interior mobility with a wheelchair, floor plan ideas

  • A floor plan that is "open-concept" with mobility access to all areas.

  • You should divide the bedrooms into one area of your house. This will reduce hallways.

  • Bathrooms should be spacious and open to allow wheelchair access.

  • The countertop height can be easily adjusted to suit the needs of the homeowner who is handicapped.

High-quality manufactured housing is the best option for you and your loved ones who are mentally or physically disabled. It is easy to build and can be customized to meet your individual needs.
