We don't know if we want to own, but buying a manufactured home is a whole lot cheaper than renting a crappy apartment in our area and there are some nice mobile home communities so we are looking into it. What are the biggest cons about owning one? I'm most concerned about things that might require more expensive or frequent repair/replacement than a traditional house. Financial burden is what worries me the most.

They don't hold their value, so if it's not a permanent solution don't get yourself stuck in that trap! It will end up costing you more than you think you're saving. With a little time and patience you can get a house for what a pre-fab and a couple year's lot rent would cost. The house will hold it's value, so instead of throwing money away, you'll be building equity.
