Don't know what a 6.0 credit score is - usual credit score (FICO) runs from 300-850, with anything above about 725-750 being considered good, and anything in the 800's excellent.

Many banks do not make loans on modular homes, especially if they are not going to be permanently mounted on a permanent foundation. However, some do, and here are other possible financing sources:

1) manufacturer, or manufacturer's sponsored lender

2) credit unions

3) insurance and credit card companies lending arms - like Geico, GE Finance, Capitol One Finance, etc

4) Federal lenders like FNMA and FHA and VA, which insure loans on permanently foundationed manufactured homes - info at www.fanniemae.com and www.fha.gov (which even covers mobile homes) and www.va.gov. They do not actually make loans, but guarantee them to banks which do the lending, making them affordable.

A home loan will be at a much lower interest rate than a personal loan, and for longer term and available at fixed interest rate, so go that route if at all possible. A quick random check of one credit union showed 5% manufactured home fixed rate, 7-11.75% personal loan rate. You can find other source online using search terms like - manufactured housing purchase loans
