Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Beyond Skyline/Champion Merger, What’s Next in Manufactured Housing?


Our report today is frankly a teaser for our weekend report that, barring the unforeseen news, is scheduled for tomorrow – Saturday morning.



Skyline surged on that news, see that in our Bloomberg snapshot, below.

3 Bullets:

  • With markets roaring,
  • construction soaring, and
  • demand for affordable housing at record levels

there are several good reasons to expect the manufactured housing sector to get hotter.

Those will be explored in that planned morning special Daily Business News report.

A reply to messages from readers on the Skyline deal.  Paraphrasing those, ‘are the MHProNews articles about Terry and Skyline a signal?’

The rumors were out there, per our sources. But sometimes publishing would reveal the source. So…

Code, look back, and look ahead.

Lucky? We’ll Provide, You Decide.

The Masthead

” I’m tired of being the best kept secret. I’m ready to help house America.” – Terry Decio, Skyline Homes, to MHProNews. What happened? The Rest of the Story, 1… Several of the brands that the industry knows today are not the same brand as they were a decade or more ago.

Reminder. These are examples of why all of those news tips to MHProNews matter.

Skyline moved up today on news of the merger.

FYI to investors, a nuanced flub in the Reuters report is why you want to cross-check or read those stories here.  Mainstream media are often rushed to get a story out, from short-handed staffs that may not always have the same facts or research materials that are available to us about MHVille.

That’s why we’ve been and remain the runway news source in manufactured housing.

Our thanks to all for that honor, encouragement, and support.
