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
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 Code enactment.
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.
