Champion Mobile Home Reviews

Champion is a manufacturer of high-quality mobile homes, which they refer to as “manufactured homes.” They are well-known for their award-winning designs, and dedication to quality construction. The homes are attractive to look at, and have multiple options when choosing just a single standard model.

Types of Homes

Champion offers a plethora of models for you and your family to choose from – and, of course, models vary from region to region. They are designed to withstand the elements of the areas in which they are built. For example, a Champion home manufactured in Wisconsin will be designed to the state and city or town’s zoning requirements, and made to cope with the various seasonal changes and the harsh winters, whereas a Champion home manufactured in or for Georgia will be designed in the same manner, but with the hot and humid southern weather in mind. All Champion mobile homes are designed to the Federal HUD Code.


As far as cost goes, Champion mobile homes are considered more affordable than other homes, but with the same quality found in the others. However, they do not offer a warranty or guarantee to back up this claim. They do rely on their successful track record to speak for itself. They are also one of the nation’s largest mobile home manufacturers, and they buy their supplies in great quantity, meaning they are able to pass along the savings to you.

Environmental Information

Does not indicate if all of the suppliers they use are LEED Certified. However, some of their suppliers are – such as Owens Corning and Georgia-Pacific.
Champion homes are built with environmental efficiency in mind. They offer the following benefits for you and your family:
•    Energy efficiency: high-quality insulation, low “E” windows, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, and Energy Star features as standard on many models will provide you with cost-savings for years to come.
•    Resource efficiency: In order to ensure that your overall costs are lowered upon purchasing the home, this green solution helps. Waste reduction through recycling has been able to eliminate waste by two-thirds – meaning that instead of paying for new technology for green building, you’re saving money through recycling.


The major advantage to Champion mobile homes is that they are highly customizable – it seems that no matter which model you pick, you have plenty of options within that single home. Even one manufactured home has ten different potential kitchen set-ups. Furthermore, if you aren’t satisfied with any of the base models with all their options, you can opt to design exactly what you want from scratch. There are so many options to choose from, however, you may likely find exactly what you want with Champion’s base homes. Of course, it would have to meet Federal HUD requirements for the area in which you live, so it might be beneficial to check out standard models available in your area, and build from there.

One of the drawbacks is that there is no warranty information for Champion mobile homes, which means that, even though they do declare a sincere dedication to quality construction, they do not warranty supplies or protect from manufacturer defects for any period of time. However, the company has been in business successfully for over 50 years. They even boast that a former Governor of Arkansas chose a Champion home to live in while the Governor’s Mansion was being renovated.

Champion homes are affordable and attractive homes that are highly customizable, and a good choice if you are highly particular about your living space, but don’t want to overspend.

  1. Champion homes are very cheaply made. They are made of particle board, not real wood. Cabinets are veneer, carpet is so thin, the thin insulation rolls up under the carpet. The holes they make for your pipes to go through are big enough for a small dog to climb through. There are so many problems with their homes, I could write a book on them. Do not buy from them!

    1. I totally agree! Very dissatisfied and disappointed! I’d never buy another and won’t recommend. Cheap windows and cabinets. Peeling after only 1 year!!! I wonder if there’s insulation in mine? I hear every limo use outside. Like a window is open!! Ugh

  2. HI


    1. yes folks please go else were. go stick built. poor quality and cheaply made. my home is less then 2yrs old and stuff is peeling and falling apart in every room in the house.

  3. My best advice. Do NOT buy a Champion home. I can not express how disappointed I am with my new home. The workmanship was shodd( they forgot to even run electric to the end of my home), repairs are impossible to get fixed. I have had tiles fall off, my mantle fell off which broke hearth stones, my sinks will not plug, the carpets are cheap and wearing out after only 4 months, I paid extra for hardwood floors which were scratched and not fixed, the list could go on and on. I paid 90,000$ for my home. I would not recommend buying a Champion home even to someone I do not like.

    Champion should be ashamed to call itself an American company.

  4. Really wished I’d seen reviews on champion homes before purchasing one.This is the poorest built home I believe I could have purchased. Problems from day one .champion homes should really be held accountable for this junk their selling people. A terrible home and service stir clear of champion homes

  5. Anyone that buys a Champion home is a fool. I live in one and I wouldn’t advise anyone to buy one. Mine is 4years old and there is so much wrong with it I can’t begin to tell you.They are rip off.

  6. To the other people that left comments ,you are right champion is a worthless company that should be over in china where they would fit right in with their cheap made CRAP products ,made with the lowest end of materials you can find ,and put together like a bunch a 5 year olds were let lose with hammers and thumb tacks,And the liars that are at this company .People that will jump off a bridge if this company told them to do so.

  7. Wow, you truly only see a few people on all website that are unhappy, why is it you never see the Majority of people of all products that are happy with what THEY bought. I have had a Champion Home for 8 years and I have site built homes also.. I have had some problems with all of them but it is nothing you should not think would be understandable. My home has been fantastic no major problems, But then again I did not let price dictate my purchase. I am completely satisfied in my choice and after comparing the other companies before I purchased I made the right choice. I will be doing business with them again on more property I have.. Thank you Champion .. I am a happy customer.

  8. The worst service ever. I have been working with Champion for16 months trying to get them to honor their warranty. They put me off until the it expired and wont fix it. this is an untrustworthy horrible company.

  9. Champion has a staff that WILL NOT return calls. Has completely failed to provide warranty service. Took advantage of a vet. What a shame.

  10. We purchased a 2018 and Champion’s Service Department will not return our calls. They promise to do repairs a certain way then when they finally send someone they have completely different orders. A simple repair that the dealership offered to do but Champion wanted their Service Dept. to do and has yet to be done after 8 months of phone calls and promises and now with Champion not returning calls. I would strongly NOT recommend purchasing any Champion Home products. We should have known when they required us to sign papers stating we would use Arbitration instead of Lawsuits to settle complaints that major problems existed within their Company.

  11. Our home was delivered to us on 9/21/18, half of the items that we had ordered were missing, we had to be calling every week, they still have not replaced our windows, the windodws will not open, the window seals and door seals are the cheapest, the dirt comes through our windows and glass doors. Poor exterior door install, untrustworthy horrible builders.

  12. My wife and I, retired, bought a new 2013 Champion double wide (28 by 60) and love it! We live in cold country – Poughkeepsie NY- and find it very well insulated ( floors rated 13, walls 19, ceiling 30). Heating with propane and cooling with Miller central air is very efficient. We have two roomy bedrooms and two full baths. Beautiful kitchen, nice front porch, and a 10 by 20 deck (trax decking and resin rails). Absolutely a perfect home to retire in. I find Champion a great choice for us!

    We purchased a 1700 sq ft Athens. We are very happy so far with the quality. We had some issues upon move in and Champion sent out a crew and remedied everything. It’s a manufactured home, the carpet is thin would be my only negative. We bought it to live in while we build a stick house, it’s so nice we have put that off for a couple years. No complaints so far.

  14. Warranty?..what warranty…only 2 years in and I had to replace the HVAC and now about to replace the roof. Shower tiles falling off. Cracks in the walls. Sealant around windows only where you can see from floor level. Sliding windows leaked water during a rain & flooded the kitchen. Poor quality material & tradesmen. The only good thing about replacing the HVAC & roof is now I’ll actually get a warranty for 10 yrs.

    I’m writing something I honestly didn’t want to have to do. My husband and I retired and relocated to Western Kentucky in January of 2021. We purchased property and wanted badly to build a new house. With Covid in the picture the prices of building material went through the roof. We had a new5th wheel RV so we stayed in it and decided to look at new mobile homes. We went to Benton Ky. and actually found a floor plan we really liked. After going over all the details we both agree it would be less costly to go with what we thought was to be a very well built with pride mobile home. We ordered it exactly like we wanted and were given the price. We placed our down payment and we’re given the expected date for delivery. That was to be April of 2021. We paid the remaining balance for our home and waited for the delivery. That didn’t happen. We didn’t receive our home until the end of June 2021.. From there it’s been a constant nightmare. We made the mistake of not looking inside the home at the dealership other then the living room area. According to the dealership we couldn’t look inside the parts that had exterior doors because of the doors being screwed shut due to transit and the wrap that is used in transit. Had we known then what we learned after the home was delivered we would have insisted and/or asked for our down payment back and drove off leaving it with the dealership. Upon finally getting to see the inside we were devastated at what we saw. There’s so much to try and write, but trust me it was awful. We begged for them to come get it and give us back our money or build us another one. People from the dealership and the manufacturer came to where our home was located on our property and they went through it and asked us to give them a chance to make it right. We didn’t want to, but we finally agreed to do that. A crew of 4 workers came and stayed locally at a hotel coming to our home daily for 2 full weeks working on it. Since then we’ve had 5 more work crews come and attempt to deal with issues. We now refer to our home as the bandaid home. We were paid another visit from a representative from the manufacturer asking what would it take to make things right because they are aware our home will never be what our hard earned money paid for. We told them once again to please take it back and give us back our money. We were told they couldn’t do that, but he felt we had an exceptional case and there would be some competition. We then asked for half of our money back because we only have half of what we paid for. We were denied any type of competition from another person higher up in the company. So it’s been a little over a year now and we still have issues that will never be addressed or fixed by Champion. The only good review we can give is that everyone that came to our home to do whatever they could in attempt to fix it was very nice. As far as recommending a Champion Home, we never will. Our advice is go somewhere else. As for the dealership in Benton Ky. don’t go there either. All they want is your money. After that they kick you to the curb. Sincerely, extremely disappointed customer.

  16. I’m so glad I read this! We are from MI and they are the most affordable but if this is what we will get I’d rather pay a more reputable builder of manufactured homes!
