Evidence of the Most Important and Interesting Issues, Topics, and Concerns for Manufactured Housing Focused Pros in March 2023; plus MHVille Stocks, REITs, Markets and News Headlines Updates


Preface: what interests’ manufactured housing industry professional readers like you the most during a specific period is of ongoing interest to the management of this platform and apparently also for literally thousands of others in MHVille too. Reader engagement levels here is similar to a survey of ‘what matters most’ to manufactured housing professionals. The focus of this article are the most-read items for the first of March through 22-Mar-2023 at 07:16 CDT, per third-party Webalizer’s metrics. Because the evidence clearly indicates that this is the runaway most-read trade media serving manufactured housing, perhaps it is no surprise that this periodic topic which reports the most read articles during a given month is of widespread interest. Historically this subject of the most important issues to readers like you based on visits is a magnet for readers, but why? Perhaps because professionals like yourself are curious as to what topics or themes attracts their peers and others to MHProNews the most. To set the context for the data that follows, MHProNews has well over a thousand articles accessed during the course of a given month. In fairness to our competitors in manufactured housing focused trade journalism, most of them can’t honestly say they have 1000 articles (or thousands more, as is true of MHProNews). We know from a range of sources that while manufactured home professionals are the runaway largest category of readers here, others find the content of interest. For example: public officials, investors, attorneys, nonprofits, educators, researchers and others are per third-party generated insights among our readers too. While the vast majority of readers are from the U.S. (something like 95 percent (+/-), it is interesting to note that our readers come from nations on every continent on Earth save possibly the south pole’s icy Antarctica, which according to World Population Review only has about 1100 residents, but during the summer World Count says that total surges to about 5000 total people there. A closer look at the international  traffic/visitor data often suggests that readers from nations have a possible investing or supplying manufactured housing interest or may have a perceived need for factory home building themselves.

A brief bit of techno-jargon is warranted for context before turning to the top 25 most read articles for the month-to-date on MHProNews. There have been as of 7:16 CDT on 3.22.2023 some “23634 Total Referrers” or referral paths on the primary cPanel which logs the most traffic on MHProNews, but there are a dozen others that serve this site. As Neil Patel explains, “In Google Analytics, when you view your Referrals under Traffic Sources, you see the main domains that traffic to your website originated from.” So, that includes sources such as Google or Bing.

It is frankly easier to look at that one cPanel’s data than to check them all, collate the findings, and then product a report like this. So while what follows is accurate for the main cPanel visitor and other counts (Sites | KBytes  | Visits  | Pages | Files   | Hits), it is possible that collating all of the other cPanels would produce a somewhat different, but similar ranking. As prior such reports reflect, we do withhold some articles from the ranking for proprietary reasons (which can include subjective reasons, like not wanting to give someone/some organization the pleasure of knowing how high they ranked in this report). Those points made, and based on previously reported research of data and indicators about our rivals, it is entirely possible that any one article that ranks in the middle of the pack provided below would have more total visits by itself than any other MHVille blogger or trade rival achieves for an entire month on all of their posts. Nothing comes close to the level of engagement on MHProNews.  Tacit admission for that is the fact that following such reports no rivals have been known to challenge our data and reasoning, although they are all readers here. It should be noted that not ranked in these columns are the home page. Home page hits and “direct requests” are routinely well into 6 figures monthly.

As but one indicator of the prior claim to our being the runaway Number One in MHVille trade media, while engagement is down a bit in March month-to-date and time shown (there are seasonal and other factors that influence data), we are still experiencing 9.677 pages viewed per the typical visit on MHProNews. That is an astonishing rate for a news site. As was previously reported, that is about 3 times that of visitors on CNN’s main news site, per data previously reported by SimilarWeb. What that means in part is that links within an article are routinely (but not always) clicked by readers like you. To wind up this preface and dive into ranking of the top 25 most engaged articles (* with the caveats previously mentioned and linked), let’s note that while we think we ‘know’ our audience well, we as publishers are at times surprised by what makes this cut. More on that in Part II below. Last piece of reader insight for this preface, obviously when an article published recently hits this list, it is all the more impressive than one that has been on the site for most or all of the month.

Part I – The Top 25 Most Engaged Articles* on MHProNews Month-to-Date as of Time Shown

The top of the list that follows begins with is the most popular and the list proceeds in ranks 2nd-25th.
















































Part II – Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

In no particular order of importance, are the following editorial observations.

1). Because of recent political developments, a well known attorney, author, and commentator on cable news used the expression, “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime.” It is perhaps no surprise that one of the top 25 articles for the month used that historically insightful topic, which was featured some months ago on MHProNews. That said, the article and the attorneys’ use of that phrase, while they began with the same historic quote, were not directly related.

2). Several of the most-read articles for the month are tied to legal issues, such as lawsuits or public officials’ probes. That should be a cautionary note, a kind of mini-modern morality tale for business owners and organizational management. Why? Because our posts stay online. Our older articles are over a dozen years online.

3). Several of the articles above are about controversies in manufactured housing and/or about controversial firms or organizations.  See number 2 above.

4) Our periodic (sometimes quarterly) deep dives into publicly traded companies are routinely among the most accessed reports for the month. What is surprising in a good way is that those articles may have thousands of words, not just a few hundred words like the typical post by a rival.

5) The MHI-TMHA lawsuit vs. the DOE has several of the top read reports in the top 25 above.

6) The Rollohome article has not only made the top 25, but it made the top 10 once again. There are several interesting points about that particular report, but you should know at a minimum that it continues to draw professional readers like a magnet. It was published a few years ago, which also ought to be of interest to business owners, managers, investors, and public officials (among others).  See two and 3 above. One takeaway? Good, interesting and positive news can keep attracting readers as well as negative news.

7) Almost 1/3rd of the reports linked above are from months or even years earlier. See 2, 3, and 6 above as to why that matters. Our reports are ‘sticky’ – they get initial attention, and then they can demonstrably continue to draw interest weeks, months, or even years later.


A few words are warranted about the articles that aren’t in the top 25 but which were published this month. If we went into the top roughly 60 articles for the month, then virtually every ‘new’ article would make that cut. Keep in mind that people are doing what amounts to research on MHProNews and MHLivingNews on a daily basis.  The fact that publicly traded companies, or privately owned companies that have private equity investors, are routinely among those which draw thousands of readers a month is significant. It may only take one reader from overseas or domestically seeking to invest in a good company to make a difference for a firm. It may only take one attorney or motivated public official doing research on manufactured housing ne’er do wells to decide to investigate or otherwise legally engage with a problematic company.

Has the Manufactured Housing Industry Become a Target-Rich Environment for Plaintiffs’ Attorneys? Facts, News & Views; plus, Sunday Weekly Manufactured Home Industry (MHVille) Headlines Recap

For those who think that they will soon retire or otherwise exit MHVille and ‘not have to worry about’ their (mis)deeds, look at that list again. Months or years may go by and suddenly a name pops back up for a range of possible reasons. Just like the quotation made by that legal commentator (others have also used that historic phrase recently, but he is just an example) on “Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime” caused a surge, events occur that spark interest and online searches. Other quotations and remarks are found in the reports above that have (e.g.: drag-a-hundred-dollar-bill-through-a-trailer-park-you-never-know-what-youll-find-james-carville-clinton-strategist) or could surge in the future (Note: that Beria quoted post below is dated 6.5.2022). We try to write each post on our sites in a manner that makes it ‘timeless’ – meaning relevant when they were initially publishedbut also relevant in the future as part of a record of facts, evidence, insights, and how they related to transpiring events.


‘Show Me the Man, and I’ll Show You the Crime’ – Lavrentiy Beria, Lessons to Recapture American Rights, Reviving Affordable Manufactured Home Performance – Viewpoint; plus Sunday Headlines Recap

We and our MHLivingNews sister site are the first and still only that do quote-images like the one below.

Terry’s comment begs the question. Why is it that MHI, Berkshire Hathaway or other giants are failing to properly promote manufactured housing? See how that quotation was used in the report linked here. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/joe-stegmayer-cavco-industries-mhi-chairman-insights-from-innovative-housing-showcase/Keep in mind that because we have search tabs and cross link reports, an individual researcher who may not personally know Joe Stegmayer (for example) could then stumble into reports like the ones linked here: https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/whistleblower-payout-cavco-cvco-settle-with-sec-in-securities-and-exchange-commission-case-vs-cavco-former-ceo-joseph-stegmayer-daniel-urness-21-cv-01507-u-s-district-court-of-az/and here: https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/masthead/project-saturn-code-name-monarch-sec-v-cavco-stegmayer-et-al-federal-suit-revelations-about-cavco-skyline-champion-other-manufactured-housing-brands-apparen/.

You see, there are ‘powers that be’ in our industry that think that they can ‘get away with’ their behavior. They may have little or no sense of history themselves. Or, they may in their arrogance have a sense of history, but don’t think that they will ever be held accountable for their own behaviors.

Some people bury their heads in the proverbial sand, with an almost juvenile behavior of ‘see no evil, hear no evil’ and hopefully ‘suffer no consequences’ kind of behavior. But not only does this writer have a long memory and decades of MHVille experiences, but this MHProNews site and our MHLivingNews sister-site have a nearly ‘perfect memory.’ Far more to be respected are those corporate, public, and nonprofit leaders and staff who may or may not like what they read here, but they check in routinely, sometimes daily, to see what’s up. Because serious readers can tell the difference, instinctively and/or intellectually, between serious evidence-based trade journalism with relevant commentary and analysis vs. mere fluff pieces that promote some product, service, or individual.

The classic movie Patton about General George S. Patton Jr. has a reminder at the close of the movie that illustrated the famous American warrior’s insights from Roman history. Per Goodreads, it went like this:

“For over a thousand years Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of triumph, a tumultuous parade. In the procession came trumpeteers, musicians and strange animals from conquered territories, together with carts laden with treasure and captured armaments. The conquerors rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children robed in white stood with him in the chariot or rode the trace horses.

A slave stood behind the conqueror holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting.”


There is evidence that some leaders in MHVille are apparently puffed up with their own position(s) and pride. Some have essentially bought and paid for fluff-pieces, self- or business-serving promotion. They have created their own ‘amen corner’ that doesn’t question but wholly or largely agree with whatever they may say. But all such ‘glory’ – per Patton and the ancient Romans – is fleeting.



There is a method on how we curate and publish reports on various topics on MHProNews. Note that mainstream housing news was among the top 25 for the month in the list above. Macro political and economic reports are among the ones that routinely rank highly on our site.

MHProNews readers can broadly be broken into categories that include a steady stream of researchers and insight seeking newcomers. But among the ‘regular’ or more established readers are those who may like or love what we publish, and some others that are less than thrilled by our factual revelations and evidence and logic-based analysis.

We took the long view in trade publishing. We took the ‘road less traveled’ and it is paying off in a unique way, because people like yourself are here daily, perhaps at this very moment that you are reading this your counterpart at another organization is reading this same article.

The future leaders of MHVille are often here.

Perhaps something they read will make them take the long and noble view that our once far greater manufactured housing industry could be so much bigger than it ever was. It could be so much better in terms of business practices than some currently evidence.  The traditional notions of good business that aims to please customers, gain referrals, and prosper has long been shaped and inspired by the good ethics and honest goals.

It may seem ‘old fashioned’ to some to think that serving the public well and serving shareholders and stakeholders honestly is good business. But here at MHProNews, we believe those ideals to be worthwhile. And yes, done properly, ethical standards are proven to be profitable. In fact, the case can be made that it can be the most profitable way, so long as the dishonest are dealt with appropriately. Look again at that list of the top 25 for March 2023, and see what you see from those headlines and reports.



The manufactured home industry is demonstrably underperforming. This image is from a fact- and evidence-packed report and analysis, one of the top 25 reports shown and linked above: https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/kevin-clayton-video-interview-w-transcript-historic-claims-claytons-call-double-production-illumines-decades-of-manufactured-housing-industry-und/ Industry readers clearly want to know why manufactured housing is underperforming during an affordable housing crisis. Who besides MHProNews, MHLivingNews, or MHARR are even raising this topic in digital or printed articles? Probing the tough questions and issues are apparently part of why we are #1 among industry pros.

2022 was a tough year for many stocks. Unfortunately, that pattern held true for manufactured home industry (MHVille) connected stocks too.
