Can Somebody Tell Me The Difference Between A Mobile Home And A Manufactured Home?

I noticed it makes a difference in the cost of your home owners insurance. I always call my place a trailer house. I looked at the specks on mine and it said a manufactured home. I never thought about it till I started shopping for insurance.

Can Somebody Tell Me The Difference Between A Mobile Home And A Manufactured Home?

Postby Bennet » Thu Oct 12, 2017 10:52 am

A mobile home is a structure that can be disassembled and moved on wheels that are attached to its frame under the home.
It has a tongue or hitch that can be attached to a heavy-duty hauler.
A manufactured home, on the other hand, is a home that is build at the factory in sections.
When you buy it, it is transported in sections to the site, and is usually situated on real property, not a mobile home park.
It is put together and is expected to stay in one place just like a frame house would be.
There are more options with a manufactured house, because it does not have the restrictions of the width of the highway to contend with, and you can add or refuse certain sections in the buying phase.
Both mobile homes and manufactured homes must be inspected by a state inspector for safety purposes, prior to issuance of a C of O or Certificate of Occupancy, to make sure thay are set up properly.
