Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) publishes latest data on manufactured housing production, per Washington, D.C. based trade group.

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, January 3, 2023 / — 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 declined in November 2022. Just-released statistics indicate that HUD Code manufacturers produced 7,970 homes in November 2022, a 12% decline from the 9,069 new HUD Code homes produced in November 2021. Nevertheless, cumulative production for 2022 now totals 106,476 homes, an 8.9% increase over the 97,758 homes produced during the same period in 2021.

A further analysis of the official industry statistics shows that the top ten shipment states from the beginning of the industry production rebound in August 2011 through November 2022 — with cumulative, monthly, current year (2022) and prior year (2021) shipments per category as indicated – are shown below.


The November 2022 data does not result in any changes to the cumulative top-ten list.

The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform is a Washington, D.C.-based national trade association representing the views and interests of independent producers of federally-regulated manufactured housing. ##

Part II. Additional Information with MHProNews Analysis and Commentary 

The factual, evidence- and commonsense-based argument can be made that if MHARR had a post-production trade association organization to partner with that manufactured housing could be growing instead of shrinking again, per the data from the last two months.  Prior monthly data for October 2022 that was released in December 2022 with its related analysis are linked below.


December’s Manufactured Housing Production Report for October 2022 Data Reveals Trend Shift – What Latest Facts Reflects on MHARR’s and MHI’s Respective Messaging, Efforts

MHProNews, using facts, evidence, and applying industry expert analysis previously noted that when MHI was releasing their latest ‘study’ on manufactured housing ‘during a recession’ that they were essentially preparing the manufactured housing industry’s independents for a downturn. A high level executive with an MHI member producer previously warned MHProNews – and through us to the industry’s readers – that MHI leadership were planning a downturn. Additionally, the Texas Real Estate Research Center (TRERC) and Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA) were predicting a slowdown based on sentiment reports, despite then contrary evidence. Several of the dominating brands behind the curtain at TMHA are the same dominating brands behind MHI. Is it any surprise that despite a lower price point than conventional housing, the dearth of affordable homes, and lower payments possible with HUD Code manufactured housing that a fresh downturn now appears to be upon manufactured housing? Because that downturn that was predicted despite the obvious evidence that it need not be so is now apparently been thrust upon manufactured housing industry professionals and consumers. Some of the reasons that the 4th quarter of 2022 downturn in MHVille was utterly avoidable are linked in the reports below.

Pew Research Manufactured Home Financing Data Reveals Harm from Enough Federal Lending Shuts Out Many Prospective Buyers-Concerns on Berkshire Owned MHLenders, Manufactured Housing Institute

Yet another contact has been made by a point person for a law firm that is probing possible class action suits in manufactured housing.

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


The manufactured housing industry is demonstrably underperforming. MHARR is the sole national trade group that has repeatedly pointed out that the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) is directly connected to that manufactured housing industry underperformance.  When MHI and their outside attorneys are asked to respond to such concerns, they are routinely mute. That leaves the evidence- and fact-based allegations against them publicly unchallenged.

MHI is several times the size of MHARR, as they themselves obliquely but routinely point out when they say that their members produce some 85 percent of all of manufactured housing’s production.  What MHI leaves out of that claim is that 3 of their producers are 80 percent of that production total! Meaning, 3 HUD Code builders have long outproduced dozens upon dozens of other ‘independent’ manufactured housing builders. MHI openly claims to represent “all segments” of the manufactured housing industry. That may be true in some technical sense, because they have members from ‘all segments’ of the industry. But that claim apparently doesn’t mean that they are effectively representing ‘all segments’ of the industry, if their actual agenda is consolidation instead of growth.

Several publicly traded firms are making similar statements, but this one happens to have a partner and co-founder a prior MHI chairman, Nathan Smith.


Historic Insight

Manufactured housing’s giants of the late 20th century both filed for bankruptcy before the end first decade of the 21st century.  For instance, Fleetwood filed for bankruptcy in 2009, per a March 11, 2009 report on the Los Angelas Times.  Reuters reported that Champion filed for bankruptcy in 2009, per reports in MarketWatch and Reuters on November 15, 2009.  Why does that matter? Because earlier that year, Clayton Homes and Berkshire Hathaway affiliated 21st Mortgage pulled financing for independent manufactured home retailers (see the report linked below for details and the document) in a move that was said in hindsight to be an apparent antitrust violation.


Warren Buffett’s Pledge to Kevin Clayton – ‘You Can Access Plenty of Capital’ for Projects – Quotes, Facts, Video, Transcript, and Implications for Manufactured Housing Industry

Both Clayton’s top attorney, Tom Hodges – who served as MHI’s chairman for some time – and MHI itself have declined comments about the antitrust concerns raised by outside researchers such as Samuel “Sam” Strommen with Knudson Law and James A. “Jim” Schmitz Jr., with the Minneapolis Federal Reserve.





Curious minds want to know. On the surface it makes no sense that manufactured housing would be declining just because conventional housing is slowing. Articles like the one below have a steady flow of readers from inside and outside of manufactured housing.


Indeed, it was Cavco Industries Bill Boor, who is currently MHI’s vice chairman (does that mean chairman of vice?) who said during an earnings call that manufactured housing as an industry had the chance post-COVID19 outbreak to catch up with conventional housing. Given that apparent truism, then why is manufactured housing once more in a back-to-back months of decline?

Bill Boor is correct in saying that the industry has an opportunity to ‘catch up’ – or even pass – conventional housing builders. But that opportunity existed 2 decades ago too. That means, that until the root issues are addressed, authentic progress will not be obtained. That noted, by addressing the root issues robust growth can occur.


Abraham Lincoln said it well that no man (or woman) has a good enough memory to be a long-term successful liar. Sooner or later, some truth slips out that contradicts prior paltering, spin, or outright lie.

By carefully tracking the various statements and claims, past or present, by Warren Buffett, Kevin Clayton, Clayton Homes, MHI, et al, MHProNews is able to demonstrate the apparent disconnects between their prior claims and their later deeds.

The lesson that Buffettist Moat Builders may have learned (or already knew) from the Fleetwood and Champion bankruptcy is this. Both brands were attempting to buy market share while the industry was still growing. Fleetwood and Champion were purchasing independent retailers, sometimes at inflated prices, in order to feed their respective factories thirst for growth. The problem was when the industry downturn hit, driven in good part by a loss of third-party lending combined with a wave of repossessions, manufactured housing consolidation during a period of growth proved to be an illusion by both of the former MHVille giants. A wink and a nod and the slow, painful lessons of reality have since shaken that scenario up to the one that is endured since the loss of much third-party manufactured home lending. MHARR addressed all of that in their press release shown above.

Additionally, now Bloomberg and the Washington Post have – without naming names as MHARR or MHProNews have done – illustrated similar points. MHARR’s press release above illustrated that point too.

‘The U.S. Can Solve Its Housing Crisis – It Just Needs To Start Building’ Bloomberg, Washington Post Want More Manufactured Housing in 2023! Plus 2022 Year in Review, Sunday MHVille Weekly Headlines Recap

Much of this pattern has been illustrated in MHARR’s White Paper, which once again remains publicly unchallenged by MHI or its corporate backers.


As MHProNews has been reporting, a well-placed source has told this publication that if the industry returned to something approaching 200,000 new HUD Code home shipments, that source personally knows “5 or 6” prior HUD Code builders who would jump back into the industry. That claim is potentially 5-star, bright line evidence that underperformance is precisely the goal of MHI’s dominating brands and leadership. For those who may not get it, consider Bill Gates pithy insight into the mind of his now longtime buddy in business and philanthro-feudalism, Warren Buffett.

This statement is revealing. A parasite feeds on its host. Bill Gates admits he thought ill of Warren Buffett. But they got together on numerous business, nonprofit, and political levels. Clearly, whatever held Gates back he overcame. What he didn’t say in this quote is that Buffett changed. There is an inference that Gates learned from Buffett and embraced that parasitic business model.
Several possible scenarios exist that could give rise to a strategy that could profitably return manufactured housing to its former glory and beyond. What is that potential? Prior MHI President and CEO Richard “Dick” Jennison said it was 500,000 units a year, or “half a million” HUD Code manufactured homes. That’s nearly 5 times the current production.

Still and quote are from the video posted on this page.
Ironically, Skyline Champion’s own investor pitch-deck provides ample evidence for manufactured housing industry underperformance. That same pitch-deck further provides evidence that Mergers and Acquisitions are a key part of their business model. What is there in such revelations that Birch and Williams miss? Bear in mind, that they are mere stand-ins who voluntarily raised their hands in defense of Berkshire and MHI firms like Skyline Champion.

MHProNews and our MHLivingNews sister site appear to be the only trade publications with the cojones and chutzpah need to hammer away at such facts, evidence, and connect the necessary dots for manufactured housing industry readers, potential and current investors, and others involved in affordable housing advocacy. Our year in review reports for MHProNews spotlighted the articles that readers like you made the top in each month of the year. They are illuminating to say the least. Curious minds want to know.

Manufactured housing stocks should have been soaring in 2022 as conventional housing was slowing. But overall, that was not the case. MHVille connected equities routinely fell along with much of the balance of the stock market in 2022.

The move by several state attorneys general, treasures, and other state-based pushback on ESG investing norms being pushed by giants gives another possible clue that the correct approach by motivate and articulate MHVille professionals could yield litigation and other efforts that may bust the rigged system in manufactured housing wide open.


Following the Money Trail in Battle Over Green Policies, ESG Investing, Economic Liberty, Politics, and Modern Manufactured Housing


The evidence and lessons of 2022 into the causes and possible cures for manufactured housing underperformance are growing, but apparently only here at MHProNews, MHLivingNews, and at MHARR. MHARR merits the support of all independent producers that want to see the industry grow to its true potential. MHARR is also a template for what a post-production trade group could mean as a tool to unlock the door to enforcing existing laws that would cause manufactured housing to begin to achieve its incredible but true potential.
