|Editorial Review||Holly Park was part of the IBS network that is now closed. They produced great mobile homes and average modular homes. They had been increasing their focus towards modular homes which helped to increase their quality and options available to home buyers. We feel they best served mid-range home buyers. If they do reopen they would be worth a consideration.|

Personal Reviews of Holly Park Homes
Sharon Wilson from IN
I bought my Holly Park mobile home at Bedford, IN, over 30 years ago I have owned it for over 30 years, and I still make it my home. I am planning on putting new floors in the kitchen area soon. It is easy to heat in winter and stay's cool in summer with a small air conditioner in dining room window. (air conditioner still works but I don't like to be to cold in summer.
Jim from Illinois
Absolute junk bought new in 1986. It had the pipes that would burst within the walls (gray polybutelyne, or something like that), and I had to have it replumbed completely. Numerous holes for pipes and wires and gaps for literally hundreds of mice to get inside the wallsover time. Poorly trimmed. Just a pile of crap. Roof leaks. Window leaks. I eventually scrapped it out. Would never recommend.
Jimmie Pickering from TX
I used to have a 1971 HP home absolutely beautiful very well built,huge 9 foot ceilings,never had a leak,very sound,all copper wiring,step up dinning room and front kitchen,just beautiful.
James Sanchez from Michigan
Summer of 2020 I own a home and just found out that the roof on both sides of the roof from front to back, 70 foot mobile home has been leaking water. I still have 10 years to pay on it. i am 67 years old I cant do repairs myself now. on 6/27/2020 I went to install a roll up awning and the screws would spin in the wood and then the other side of the mobile home, I had someone try to install gutters and he told me the screws keep spinning will not hold the gutters up. thank you holly park for the junk trailer you built. the lord has a place for you. now I hear its possible the roof could collapse do to the weight and the rotten wood.
Michael Hassler from Indiana
I have a 1979 Holly Park mobile home and I have been in it for over 31 years. I love my home and it has been good to me. I own my property and that makes things a lot better. I am in the middle of replacing windows and some of the floors. In all it is a good buy. I have nine foot ceilings in the front room and it is very spacious. You will eventually have to remodel any house that you buy so, I feel good 31 years of good reliable living is fantastic.
karen faber from apollo pa
living in holly park mobile home bought in 1971 still a very stable home.
Richard from Chesaning, MI
My parents bought a Holly Park in 1977 new. Built so much better than most mobile homes at the time, Holly Park was the Cadillac of mobile homes. Such features as the dual bay windows on the living room and the real parkay wood floor in the dining room set Holly parks ahead of the rest. It's too bad they couldn't make then like that anymore. Mobile homes had such character and style then.
RANDY A KENTZEL from ca
Trim work a monkey could do better biggest problem has been while walking from the back to the front seen smoke coming out of the wall ripped siding off dumb asses laid electrical over a stud and stapled through the insulation board into the romex and into the stud. they should have put romex staples in the stud bay. Good thing we were home would have lost our home.
Todd from Hersey, Mi
Only complaint is the peaked roof was improperly built, a 1989 home with 3 layers of shingles and leaking, by looking at the roof design, they put a 2x6 facia board around the roof line which was not in line with the roof pitch but level instead trapping water along the outer edges of the roof, in turn rotting all the wood along the roof eaves,
Amber from Missouri
Roof wasn't properlyinstalled... so we have damage No underlay under the shingles and spaces between them. No house wrap under the siding. The skirting won't stay on. Cracks in the ceiling holes The ceiling that were there when they installed and Never fixed. Water lines in guest bathroom weren't connected so water damage
Eric from New York
I bought mine from an elderly couple. Retired IBM'ers. It was an 1988 Forest Park. I was told it was a Rolls Royce at the price of Cadillac. It is now 29 year old and still has everything original except for Hot Water Heater and one Shower pan. Other than that I can not really complain! It is just maintenance and age! I would buy an other one
Bill Ferguson from Indian River, MI
Horribly built home roof leaked the first year we bought. Ordered with a shingle roof. Formaldehyde smelled awful for a long time, I'm disabled so money for repairs wasn't possible, and Hollypark went out of business. Recently had a metal roof put on, come to find out they installed shingles over the metal roof with no paper. If I could take them to court we'd be on our way there.
Kenith from Royal Center in
A complete crap of a home water pipes busting, doors not level and stick on trim and the roof has leaked since day one and the cabinets cheaply made and not right, yep not a happy camper here.
Ken Quint from Wis
My neighbor bought a new 1976 HP. Best mobile Home in town.
Michael from Indiana
I bought my 1979 Holly Park back in 1989 from a farmer friend of mine. I moved it to where I live now in Noblesville Indiana. I like my mobile home and would buy an other one. I have nine foot ceilings in my front room and a nice wood stove. I have no complaints.
Mike Wrightsel from Chillicothe Ohio

Stephen Hoag from Muskegon, Mich.
I bought my home in 2005, what a mess the trim looks like it was put up by a drunk with a nail gun. And so far I have had leaks and two outlets short out almost causing a fire. Would I ever buy another home like this no! big mistake now I'm stuck with this mess.
Randy nothern wi from WI
Yes the window leak, ice dames all winter long, I have to remove the snow every time it snows other wise I will get water thru my windows. I thought the roof was guaranteed for 25 years? Well since they are out of business I guess I'am on my own. I have bought boxes of finishing nails to put the trim back in place.
Ron from Northern Michigan
Complete crap. Glorified travel trailer is an insult to the RV industry. We paid for a 2x6 roof. After it caved in we discovered it was 1x2" on 24" centers!? How is that supposed to hold snow?!? We got screwed...BAD!!!
Oneil from United States
Absolute junk, they should be run out of the country. It should be against the law to sell someone one of these dangerous buildings they call a house.
Vincent Michalek from 1093 hwy 6 trail Victor IA
My holly park mobile home is an absolute piece of junk. I am speading the word to stay away from buying a holly park because of the lack of workmanship done on my home. Every window leaks water, the moulding is falling off wall,there is no sheeting on the outside of the structure, and when it is windy, the air that comes through the walls is appalling. The only thing holding it together is the inside drywall. The roof has leaked and the doors are out of square. Live and learn
David Spearin from 103 Candy Lane Peru IN
I purchased Holly Park home in 2003. It is a 38x80 2002 Model 405P and I love it. It is the conversation piece of Miamisport Mobile homes in Peru. It has ne ver caused me any touoble or worry until today. The shower unit(not the shower head) in one of the guest bathrooms broke down. I need a new one to install but do not know where to go to order one. Could you help me. Urgent because I have no water.
Mark S. Robreau from St. Joseph, MO
I special-ordered a Holly Park home in August 2003. I was impressed by the many options available. The home was delivered in November 2003, and Holly Park followed up my making sure everything was satisfactory. They even had someone that literally went from site to site correcting problems and making sure the customer was happy with their purchase. I had only a few flaws to correct. The only problem I still have (and will apparently always have) is with the tankless water heater. It takes about 45 seconds to get a warm flow through your faucet, and the water is never "steaming hot", despite the temperature settings. Overall, I am happy with my purchase and would recommend (and have) Holly Park to anyone interested.
cathy from mi
My home is very shoddy. The wall structure bows out and trim pops off because of it. The cupboard doors don.t line up. I had the recalled Polybutaline pipes, so my pipes burst and leak. over all this is just mobil home living. The frost makes everything out of line and is constantly shifting. Mine is 18 yrs old and overall has been a nice home.
Neva Smith from Kansas
We purchased our Holly Park in the summer of 2000, it is a cheaply built home. The company drug one half a few miles with flat tires, after putting the 2 halves together, we found out that 220 and water etc, wasn't connected on from one half to the other. the ceiling has cracks, the double doors to our bedroom don't shut together very well, the dishwasher (drain?) leaks - just not a very satisfactory experience.
