Personally I would not just take the word of a RE professional as they may not be particularly familiar with every park/community's rules and regs. Your best bet is to speak with each and every park/community manager and/or HOA representitive to get an exact answer.
There is not a list for the parks that have mobile / manufactured homes
You would call each one or better yet talk to an agent who will let you know which parks have them for sale. You would want to know if its a family park or a senior park which has more restrictions. I would get an inspector who knows about the pre-fab homes
Space rent ranges from 700-800 up to 1500 per month
What part of Orange County are you looking in? How many bedrooms? Max amount of space rent you want to pay? A family park? Any pets?
You would have to fill out an application and be interviewed by the park manager before living there
If you are thinking of financing the regular banks do not finance mobile/manufactured homes. I have a list of companies who do finance them
Look forward to hearing from you and help you find a home. Talk to you soon

Be wary of any manufactured home built before June 15, 1976 as they are "PRE HUD" homes and will be very difficult if not impossible to finance. Additionally many if not most PRE HUD homes were built using caustic and carcinogenic chemicals i.e. formaldehyde and asbestos.
But before you purchase any manufactured home you should have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.Make sure the home is level and that the pier and pad assemblies are in good shape.
Be sure the vapor barrier and insulation are in tact and not ripped, torn or lying on the ground. Have the inspector look for drainage issues i.e. standing water, soil erosion, expansive (clay soil), rusted and deteriorating piers and dry rotted or decomposing wood pads supporting the piers.
Most importantly make sure the home has an approved set of Earthquake Resistant Bracing installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:
