Brief History of Manufactured Homes

Manufactured homes today are fit to standards and upgrades of modern times.  They have come quite a long way since the 1920’s when they were first built as “trailer coaches,” which were compiled as something more comfortable to sleep in while people were traveling.  As the years went on “trailer coaches” evolved into bigger trailers with upgrades such as appliances and soon appealed to homeowners. With the rising popularity and enhancements of “trailer coaches” to manufactured homes, Congress passed a law.

According to the article, A Brief History of Manufactured and Modular Homes, from RebelHome.net, it states, “In June, 1976 -The United States Congress passed the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Act (42 U.S.C.). This means, since 1976, HUD assures that all homes are built to the rigid, consistent national standards it enforced back then and still does today”. It was from this moment on that homeowners were reassured that their home was built to a high standard.

The history of manufactured homes is significant because it is the evolution of a type of popular home. What started out as “trailer coaches” has expanded into a home fit for the ages and various lifestyles all over the country. Today, manufactured homes are identical to a regular site built home and come with the same amenities. Great strides have been made in terms of quality and remains a sound decision for affordable living.
