The mobile/manufactured market is totally unique from other real estate markets. You really want to work with a real estate professional who knows the market, as well as the location, very well. For my money, I would strongly recommend you contact John Arendsen. I do not know John personally; however, I have witnessed his knowledge and expertise and sound advice for many consumers here on Trulia and know he is the best agent for the job!
In short, if I had a referral for a manufactured home...or, if I were in the market myself....I would not hesitate working with John. Best of luck to you! Hope your dream becomes a reality soon!
Where do you want to live? In California?
Look at getting a place in Ecuador.
The place is the future for many US Americans!!
Beach homes are within reach.
Not a scary place to live at all.

My personal favorite is Paradise Cove, you have great views of the beach and the world famous Paradise Cove Restaurant. Prices vary and depend on the locality of the area.
GOOD LUCK HOUSE HUNTING!

John's answer steers you toward the only real MHC on the Westside (think beach) of Los Angeles. There are otheres in Orange County, but Paradise Cove is surely one of the loveliest and most in demand.
Paradise Cove has been the featured location for many TV Shows, Movies and commercials for the last several decades. (Remember The Rockford Files with Jim Garner?)
The PC website does not currently show listings, but they are available in the Multiple Listing Service.
