“It’s a shame that so many in the industry just don’t get it,” said an industry reader and client who tipped the auction of Elvis’ honeymoon mobile home to MHProNews. “Manufactured home pros should celebrate the mobile home past, not run from it. Yes, we need the right terminology, and done correctly it would elevate the industry’s image.”
MHProNews and MHLivingNews previously reported on a prior sale of the home.
Judging from the current photos the auction house shared, the true pre-HUD Code mobile home looks to have been updated and rehabbed.
The auction tells MHProNews the same, describing the home like this: “Elvis & Priscilla Presley’s 60′ Two Bedroom Delta Mobile Home From Circle G Ranch W/All Paperwork (Recently Restored)”
“For a forward thinker with wit, some spare change, and an eye for marketing this could be a traffic magnet for a manufactured home sales center or land-lease community,” said publisher and consultant, L. A. “Tony” Kovach.
The auction will be held on Aug 25, 2018 10AM PDT, in Agoura Hills, CA, by GWS Auctions CA Bond#: 62520248.
