Mobile homes (or manufactured homes) are housing units built in
factories, rather than on site, and then taken to the place where they
will be occupied. They are usually transported by semi-trucks over public
highways. They are less expensive per square foot than site-built homes,
and are often associated with rural areas and high-density developments,
sometimes referred to as trailer parks. In the UK and USA they are
referred to as "mobile home parks."
The term "manufactured home" specifically refers to a home
built entirely in a protected environment under a federal code set by the
US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Contrary to popular
belief, manufactured homes are not mobile homes. The term "mobile
home" describes factory-built homes produced prior to the 1976 HUD
These houses are usually placed in one location, often a rented lot, and
left there permanently. However, they do retain the ability to be moved,
as this is a requirement in many areas. Behind the cosmetic work fitted
at installation to hide the base, there are strong trailer frames, axles,
wheels and tow-hitches.
Manufactured homes are not large recreational vehicles. The latter are
more properly called travel trailers, motor homes or RVs, and they are
usually parked at facilities called trailer parks, trailer courts, or RV
parks for short terms.
The two major forms of manufactured homes are single-wides and double-wides.
Single-wides are sixteen feet or less in width and can be towed to their
site as a single unit. Double-wides are twenty feet or more wide and are
towed to their site in two separate units, which are then joined
together. Triple-wides and even homes with four, five, or more units are
also manufactured, although not as commonly.
In the U.S., manufactured homes are regulated by the United States
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), via the Federal
National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of
1974. It is this national regulation that has allowed many manufacturers
to distribute nationwide, since they are immune to the jurisdiction of
local building authorities. By contrast, producers of modular homes must
abide by state and local building codes. There are, however, windzones
adopted by HUD that manufactured home builders must follow. For example,
state-wide, Florida is at least windzone 2. South Florida is windzone 3,
the strongest windzone. After Hurricane Andrew in 1992, new standards
were adopted for manufactured home construction. The codes for building
within these windzones were significantly amended, which has greatly
increased their durability. During the 2004 hurricanes in Florida, these
standards were put to the test, with great success.
However, older models continue to face the exposed risk to high winds due
to the attachments applied such as carports, porch and screen room
additions. These areas are exposed to "Wind Capture" which
apply extreme force to the underside of the integrated roof panel
systems, ripping the fasteners through the roof pan causing a series of
events which destroys the main roof system and the home.
