"If you can afford to rent an apartment, you can afford to buy a mobile home," said Gary Newberger, sales manager at Chesapeake Mobile Homes of Laurel Inc.

"A mobile home is an excellent alternative to renting."

Chesapeake stocks single and double-wide homes that cost from $19,900 to $59,900.

The homes are manufactured by Fleetwood Homes of Riverside, Calif., winner of the Manufacturer of the Year Award from the Manufactured Housing Institute five times in the past seven years.

Triple-wide units can be ordered from the factory.

In this area, mobile homes must be in place in a mobile home

park, where monthly pad rentals start at $250, according to Newberger.

At Deep Run Park in Elkridge, lot fees are $393 or $403, including the Howard County mobile home tax.

Deep Run Park has a swimming pool, playground and new and used mobile homes for sale.

Chesapeake's largest home in stock is the Model 4644V from Fleetwood's Woodland Park Series.

It has vinyl siding, a shingle roof, cathedral ceilings in every room, 1,706 square feet and a base price of $59,900.

Located off the living room, the master suite has a walk-in closet, 13-by-13-foot bedroom and bath with soaking tub, dual vanities and separate shower.

There are three other bedrooms and a full hall bath.
