Homes built in a factory following the Federal Government HUD Codes not the local building codes. The HUD Code requires that all mobile homes be manufactured on a non-removable steel chassis (steel building platform). Mobile homes are subject to local zoning regulations.
Plans/DesignThere is very limited customization. Normally you purchase a mobile after it has been built. The number of manufacturers allowing you to design and customize your mobile home is increasing. Mobile homes are almost always single floor homes since they must be built on a non-removable steel chassis
These homes follow the HUD Codes designed in the 1970s so they are generally not as energy efficient as other homes.
Generally mobile homes depreciate in value since it is very hard to improve or expand an existing mobile home.
Typically there is no waiting time. You can have a mobile home delivered almost the same day since they are normally already built and awaiting for someone to buy them.
They can be in any color but typically all look similar since they are almost always one story buildings. They can be single, double or triple wide.
The process gains from assembly-line manufacturing. This saves time and money which results in much lower prices to the consumer. Labor costs are also greatly reduced since the same craftsmen work on each home and master their section of work.
