DeTray’s Custom Housing

Heading to the Puyallup RV Show

MAY 5-8 at the Washington State Fair Events Center

It’s back! The Puyallup RV Show was last held in 2019. Due to COVID restrictions, the show has been on hold until this year. This show also features Manufactured Housing and we will be there! DeTray’s Manufactured Housing will be bringing two Skyline homes to the show for display.

The Troubadour

This beautifully designed two-bedroom, one bath home features a covered front porch, and a large living room with oversized windows. The open kitchen with island and pantry cabinet is an inviting and great space to prepare a meal while visiting with friends. The single width design allows for quick and easy installation on your vacation property or as an ADU for grandparents.

The Classical

This 50’ x 27’ home features a nice open layout with oversized windows in the living room. Two large bedrooms, two baths and a country style kitchen with skylight makes it the perfect getaway cabin for a small family or a great choice for a retired couple that enjoy inviting friends over for the weekend. You will want to orient the impressive six-foot covered porch to take advantage of the view of your lake property.

As a sponsor of manufactured housing at the show, we have some free tickets to share! If you’d like to go, stop by our location in Puyallup and pick up your ticket while they last. Tickets will be available until Wednesday, May 4th before the show starts. Feel free to take a look around when you come and we’ll see you at the show!

(HintThere are free scones for the first 500 ticket holders on THURSDAY & FRIDAY, YUM!!!)

Why We’ll Be at the Seattle RV Show

See Us at the Show!

We are excited to be bringing one of our manufactured homes to the upcoming Seattle RV Show, February 17-20 at Lumen Field Events Center. But you may be wondering why a manufactured home dealer would participate in an RV Show…

Many people attending an RV Show are searching for some sort of dwelling to place on their vacation property. While an RV or park model makes sense some of the time, a roomy manufactured home could be a better solution. A typical RV is built for weekend getaways and a week or two, long family vacation. They’re not for long periods of occupancy like manufactured homes are designed for. Manufactured homes offer better value than other housing solutions. Since modern manufactured homes are built to a different set of standards than RVs, tiny homes or recreational park models, the cost per square foot is often considerably less. For what you would pay for a nice 400 square foot fifth wheel or park model, you are likely able to buy nearly 800 square feet worth of a residential styled manufactured home.

We also like to attend this show to enable people north of our Puyallup location to see and experience a manufactured home. We’ll be bringing our smallest model home, the Troubadour. The Troubadour is a perfect vacation home or ADU (additional dwelling unit). People will be able to walk through it and we will be there to answer any questions people have about the purchasing and building process. If you go, be sure to find us at space Northwest D in the East Hall. We hope to see you there!

Why Have a Home in Ocean Shores?

Did you know that DeTray’s Custom Housing has a model home in Ocean Shores? It’s an exciting area, something going on all of the time, festivals, gift shows, music events and of course, great clam digging, beach and water activities. We’ve placed many homes in this community, some for vacation homes and some for permanent residences. And, we now have a new model home there for viewing!

We hope to see you at one of our upcoming Fall Open Houses, September 4 & 18 and October 2 & 16, 2021. Come and see what this beautiful area on the coast has to offer and how you can build an affordable home there. Keep up-to-date on our future activities in Ocean Shores on Facebook.

Your New Vacation Home

PICTURE THIS!

Your family has planned a camping trip for the upcoming weekend and you are looking for a great spot to take your RV for this weekend getaway, but being that it is July, all the good spots are already taken. Unfortunately, you have to cancel your plans and your RV sits in the driveway for another week.

We all love RV’s & camping but no one enjoys fighting other people for great spots, missing out on desirable dates because you tried but booked too late, or looking at your RV in the driveway 50 weeks out of the year!

VACATION HOMES

The solution to this is a Custom Vacation Home from DeTray’s Custom Housing.

This option provides you a guaranteed place to vacation or simply relax whenever you want to without the hassles described above. You will be able to enjoy your vacation home all year round, whether it is a 4th of July reunion with your family, Mother’s Day, or a random weekend getaway.

You won’t be fighting with others for campsites or other desirable locations when you simply want to pick up and go. If you decide on a Thursday that you want to visit your Vacation Home, you can block out that date and go.

THE CRAFTSMAN

This year, DeTray’s will be showcasing your future Vacation Home at the Seattle RV Show.
If you’re looking for more of a traditional design, the Craftsman style blends well with whatever look and feel is right for you. The design is timeless and features 9’ high flat ceilings throughout.

At 728 square feet it is the perfect vacation home for weekend getaways, longer vacations or simply spending one night. The open concept layout allows for great family time together in a wonderful setting, and can be close to your preferred recreational activities. See more information on the Craftsman Cottage.

Disclaimer: Craftsman exteriors are available in 14’9″ floor widths only. Exterior depiction are artist renderings only. Due to window sizes, room dimensions, and other optional features, actual exterior design is always floor plan specific.

Come See Us!

It’s not easy to adequately describe the benefits in a single posting, so I’m encouraging you to come visit us at the Seattle RV Show, February 6-9 at CenturyLink Field Event Center. You can get your tickets by visiting SeattleRVShow.com. We look forward to seeing you there.
