While mainstream conventional housing sales have been sliding in recent months, modern HUD Code manufactured home sales in the latest September report on official July 2022 data continue to reflect a year-over-year increase in production and shipments. Obviously, production/shipments of new manufactured homes are based on demand and the actual or anticipated retail sales volumes that retailers, developers, or community operators are experiencing or projecting.
Higher HUD Code Manufactured Home Production in July 2022
Washington, D.C. – The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) reports that according to official statistics compiled on behalf of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), HUD Code manufactured housing industry year-over-year production increased in July 2022. Just-released statistics indicate that HUD Code manufacturers produced 8,050 homes in July 2022, a 6.4% increase over the 7,564 new HUD Code homes produced during July 2021. Cumulative production for 2022 now totals 69,709 homes, a 13.6% increase over the 61,323 homes produced during the same period in 2021.
A further analysis of the official industry statistics shows that the top ten shipment states from the beginning of the industry production rebound in August 2011 through July 2022 — with cumulative, monthly, current year (2022) and prior year (2021) shipments per category as indicated — are:

Next up is the data per the Institute for Building Technology & Safety (IBTS). IBTS collects data on behalf of the federal government for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). They provide following state-by-state level data and then aggregate or total those facts to reflect national numbers and trends.
In the below, the following explanation of terminology is useful.
Single section = SW (one ‘floor’)
Multi-section = MW (two or more ‘floors).
Floors – per Oxford Languages, “means: the lower surface of a room [or area], on which one may walk.” So, floors in this sense doesn’t mean first, second or third floors of a building, but rather the number of ‘floors’ or individual units which when combined on site form a manufactured home. Manufactured homes are most typically single or 2, 3 or 4 ‘floor’ multi-sectional units that build a one-story structure.
