This story and video linked below uses some incorrect terminology, but underscores some point MHLivingNews.com made in our story, When the Wind Blows.

Modular homes are built in a factory to a local building code and may or may not be on a frame. Manufactured homes are built to the federal HUD Code for manufactured housing, are built on a frame and will have a red HUD label on the 'tail end' of the home, as is shown on the photo on the story linked here.
