All 50 States, plus National U.S. Manufactured Housing Production Shipment Data for October 2021 with Year-to-Date 2021 Cumulative Totals; plus Manufactured Home Market Updates


It is no surprise that there are more manufactured homes built in the United States than there are in Canada or Australia, because both of those other nations have smaller populations. It is also no surprise that manufactured housing is poised to cross the 100,000 annual new HUD Code manufactured home production level for the first time in over a decade.  But there is an odd lack of such facts in most of the other would-be rival manufactured housing trade media, other than MHProNews and/or our MHLivingNews sister site. What may be found among our smaller trade media rivals (there is no evidence of a larger professional manufactured-home focused publisher(s) than MHProNews) are cheer leading to the effect of how much manufactured housing has grown since the industry crashed to a 50+ year low in 2009 and 2010. While that climb from the bottom hit in 2009-2010 is true enough, the consistent lack of context that frames the troubling causes and prudent cures that are stunningly not properly implemented by self-described industry leaders at the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) speaks loudly. Thus, the need to keep the facts, evidence, and common-sense analysis coming until MHI lives up to its own talk and/or pivots, is held to account by public officials and others for apparent failure to perform.

The graphic below is from the December 3, 2021 report on October 2021 production and the top-ten cumulative shipment states, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR).

Washington, D.C., December 3, 2021 – 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 once again in October 2021. Just-released statistics indicate that HUD Code manufacturers produced 9,254 homes in October 2021, a 2.4% increase over the 9,035 new HUD Code homes produced during October 2020. Cumulative production for 2021 now totals 88,689 homes, a 12.6% increase over the 78,761 homes produced over the same period in 2020. … ## The MHARR report is linked here.

The report for September 2021 linked below contains third-party housing information that sets manufactured housing’s status quo into a broader context.



My successor will need one other particular strength: the ability to fight off the ABCs of business decay, which are arrogance, bureaucracy and complacency. When these corporate cancers metastasize, even the strongest of companies can falter.” – Warren Buffett.

Arrogance. Bureaucracy. Complacency. The ABCs of ‘corporate cancers,’ per Buffett. You don’t have to be a fan, or even trust the apparently wily, paltering Buffett to realize that the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) leaders simply can’t be as incompetent, bureaucratic, and arrogant as the appear to be.  A quick review of recent reports will make the point.

  • A) When it comes to promoting the industry, MHI routinely fails to spotlight useful or good information, and/or fails to respond to or clarify problematic info. Who said? Prominent MHI member Frank Rolfe.
The principle of separating wheat from the chaff must be used with Frank Rolfe and all others. In quoting Rolfe, we are not endorsing his business practices, but rather pointing out an apt statement that criticizes the association he himself is a member of today.
  • B) The evidence-based case can be made that MHI, dominated by a board that is made up of several consolidators, has been steadily thwarting good laws and failing to stop (or actively supporting behind the scenes) bad laws that have and would limit HUD Code manufactured housing. As these are serious concerns, they merit serious evidence. See the linked reports that follow.



That’s plenty for today on the troubling story of how manufactured housing is underperforming during an affordable housing crisis. To learn more about what the next steps should be for white hat brands, see the next report.

Weeks before others in the mainstream media began to flash their ‘inflation warnings,’ MHProNews added first the top, then later the second notice above. When someone has even a basic understanding of the principles of economics, ‘inflation’ was predictable. The question is, will hyper-inflation follow? There are voices on both sides of that debate.
