Remember Curt and Norma Hames-The Homes People- on TV?

Curt and Norma Hames created Hames Mobile Homes in 1969. They’re still wonderfully active in the manufactured home dealership they founded.  They provide the next two Hames generations with priceless, practical advice on how to turn customers into longtime friends.  And they should know, they’ve sold over 11,000 homes!

While we love to show-off at our new spacious, luxurious, 3 and 4 bedroom double sectional homes with garden tubs and island kitchens, we still get nostalgic for the past. Remember the old 12 foot wide mobile homes with dark paneling and shag carpeting?  No?  Well, get your 8-track tapes and take a walk down memory lane:
