This evolutionary article will make the point in less than 250 words. Would you call an old crank-style wall phone a modern smart-phone? They’re both phones, but the technology and quality then and now are so different! Yet millions today make that kind of mistake about the trailer houses and mobile homes of yesteryear and today’s manufactured homes.
Above is a photo of a 1952 Rebel model trailer house, below of a 1960’s era Richardson mobile home. The trailer could be moved by many cars. The mobile home was larger and heavier, but was easily moved by truck, thus the name “mobile home.”
There have been no mobile homes built in the U.S. since June, 15, 1976, when manufactured housing began production! The evolution from trailers to mobile to manufactured homes is akin to the path from a crank phone to a smart phone. The durable quality, energy efficiency, proven safety and beauty of contemporary manufactured homes is there for anyone with an open mind to see.
When you, a friend, associate or loved one gets ready to make your next housing decision, why not consider today’s manufactured homes?
The video above was filmed at the UMH Homes and Properties Model Home Village and Design Center, see a related Inside MH Road Show video to learn more about customizing manufactured homes, linked here.
Let me suggest something common sense to do when curious or actively shopping for a manufactured home. Don’t just do an online search or a drive by, step inside one being sold by a reputable MH retailer, developer or land-lease community in your area. See, touch and experience them first hand. When you do, odds are good you’ll be glad you did. ##
