ELKHART, Ind., - Thanks to several generous donations, the manufactured home on display at the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum in Elkhart, Indiana, is now owned by the RV/MH Heritage Foundation (Foundation), according to Foundation President Darryl Searer.  The home was originally erected and donated by Fairmont Homes for a period of one year for the purpose of showing visitors to the museum the evolution of mobile homes of the early to mid-20th century to today's modern affordable manufactured homes.  Since it was opened to the public in late 2013 it has been toured by thousands of visitors to the museum. As the clock was counting down to the end of the year when the home would have been removed by Fairmont Homes, Jim Shea, president of Fairmont Homes, offered to let the Foundation acquire...

Tunica manufactured home show 2015 update

Introducing… A Phoenix Rises Is widely considered the “premiere” show of the year… Is a unique show that totally sets it apart from all others… Is so distinctive that retailers will never see the same product at other shows… Is such an inclusive show for the south east region that it has appeal for virtually everyone who attends… Encompasses all levels of affordability, from HUD homes to spectacular system-built housing… One would have to be awfully shortsighted to fail to see that our show could present an enormous marketing opportunity. And one would have to look far and wide to find another event with the pizzazz, panache, and prestige of such a show. That’s because it doesn’t exist. But this one does. You already know it. It’s called The Tunica Manufactured Housing Show. This show possesses every one...
