The early Mobile Homes were narrow, and felt cramped inside. To combat this, they were often equipped with porches or awnings. As the 1950s passed, the size of Mobile Homes increased. Some of them had two bedrooms, while others were as small as 10 square feet. Now, manufactured homes have higher standards and fewer restrictions. This makes them a better option for people who aren’t looking to invest in a new house, but still want a comfortable home that is affordable.
Before the HUD Code in 1976, Mobile Homes were little more than portable living quarters. They were built off-site without much attention to building standards. However, regulations about production safety and quality increased and in 1976, the HUD Code was passed. Starting in 1978, manufactured homes are now officially referred to as “mobile homes” on official documents. Before that time, the term “mobile home” was generally used to describe any home built before that time.
Because of their low price and lack of permanence, most manufacturers now provide financing to mobile homeowners. Despite their low cost, the housing costs have increased considerably in recent years. A well-managed mobile home community will have strict rules, and fines can be imposed for violating them. A manufactured home is not a mobile home. A manufactured home is a manufactured house, not a trailer or a truck. Regardless of the name, this type of housing is highly desirable.
