Mobile homes have come a long way in the past 20 years. They are safer, and now they offer all of the upgrades of your standard tract homes. One thing that hasn't changed, though, even with the recent housing slump, is that new mobile homes continue to cost tens of thousands of dollars less than new tract homes. Buyers get more house for their money, plus they can put it on any lot of land they want. Take a look at this "Top 4 Dream Mobile Homes" list to learn more about mobile homes in 2010.

Tennyson - This adorable clapboard-style cottage from Factory Expo Home Centers comes in at a cozy 385 square feet, making it the perfect weekend getaway for a young - or retired - couple with property. Thanks to multiple windows, vaulted ceilings and a sliding-glass door, this is one of the new mobile homes that feels bigger than it really is. The kitchen comes complete with full-size GE appliances and a deep, porcelain kitchen sink. Carpet runs throughout the home, as do mini-blinds and valances. Factory direct mobile homes like this one fit right in on the East Coast.

The two bathrooms feature elongated, water-saver toilets and tile trim around the tubs and countertops. This is another of the dream, factory direct mobile homes from Factory Expo Home Centers.
