If you wonder why manufactured housing is not clearly understood, one must begin with facts like the above. But let’s be clear, this issue goes beyond our industry.

One must also ask, why would Buffett – one of the world’s richest men – not use that wealth, newspapers that Berkshire Hathaway owns, and media power to clear up the misunderstandings about our industry?

Understanding terminology could be just this simple. So why haven’t the Manufactured Housing Institute, Clayton Homes, Berkshire Hathaway and others who have serious market power not push for this kind of clarity?

Day by day, when events are viewed based on evidence developed here and on MHLivingNews, through direct and indirect measures, it becomes more apparent that manufactured housing is struggling due to a lack of enforcement of good, existing federal laws. Antitrust laws, the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act, and DTS – the Duty to Serve – manufactured housing, rural and underserved markets could slip through our industry’s fingers if action isn’t taken.
