Is your name still on the loan? Just because you're not on title, doesn't mean you're not still on the mortgage.

Check your eligibilty for another VA loan: http://www.benefits.va.gov/HOMELOANS/purchaseco_certificate.asp

Don't rely on us randomly answering your question on a public forum - go to the source and find out before you start dreaming of a new house and another VA loan.

We've been working in this manufactured home park/community for almost 30 years. Palomar is a fairly small airport and there's not a lot of large jet aircraft that impacts the approach pattern which is over Palomar Estates West.

However, there are other things to consider about that park/development. You really should start with the park manager of the park/communities you are interested in. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rent/lease park/community.

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 (ERBS) installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:
