Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA), Texas RE Research Center Make Surprising Admissions About Manufactured Housing Industry Risks – Facts & Analysis – plus MHVille Market Updates


A sobering challenge exists for Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) state association affiliates, such as the Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA). That challenge is apparently how not to step on the various Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) talking points when a state affiliate is making a statement to a third-party, even a friendly third-party. With that context, the TMHA has made an admission that trails MHProNews warning on a related point by over 6 months. Namely, the manufactured housing industry’s producers and retailers – despite the current surge in sales – are at risk of a predictable downturn. Who said? TMHA’s Rob Ripperda. The report below will be followed by a focused commentary and analysis.


Big MHI Member Leader Explains “Downturn” Looms, “Support” MHProNews “Efforts” “Appreciate” “Investigative Reporting” – Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) Surrogate, More MHI Linked Reactions


The report that follows should be considered in the light of the report linked above, which focused on a news tip from an MHI member manufactured home producer. The highlighting is added by MHProNews and will be included in our analysis that follows their press release.



March 8, 2022 News Release No. 12-0322


Search for housing affordability fuels manufactured-housing industry

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (Texas Real Estate Research Center) – Despite a myriad of supply-side challenges, Texas’ housing manufacturers are bullish as they enter the spring selling season.

According to the latest Texas Manufactured Housing Survey (TMHS), the industry’s outlook has continually improved since the initial COVID-19 shock, and optimism remains high for the first two

quarters of 2022.

In light of the strong run-up in site-built single-family housing, the demand for more affordable manufactured homes remains strong,” according to Dr. Harold Hunt, research economist at the Texas Real Estate Research Center at Texas A&M University. “However, large backlogs have hampered the industry’s ability to meet that demand for some time, prompting sales teams to stave off new orders until production catches up.”

NOTE: this photo was not part of the original Texas Real Estate Research Center media release. It has been added as an illustration by MHProNews.

The TMHS production index increased for the ninth consecutive month with expectations of additional activity on the horizon.

“As infections from the COVID-19 Omicron variant wane, manufacturers are benefiting from a healthier, more productive workforce that can whittle down backlogs,” said Hunt.

Manufacturers expanded payrolls and increased workweeks during February, but finding and attracting skilled workers remained a significant obstacle. Labor costs elevated substantially, contributing to broad-based inflation due to supply-chain disruptions.

“Home production increased during the first two months despite a host of headwinds from materials sourcing, labor availability, and large cost increases,” said Rob Ripperda, vice president of operations for the Texas Manufactured Housing Association.

The TMHS panel unanimously reported higher prices paid for raw materials, much of which were passed on to retailers and consumers.

“Manufacturers believe they can pick up the pace of production even more, but every week brings another hurdle, and a final rule from the Department of Energy on energy efficiency requirements is set to drop in May that could add significant friction to getting new homes out the door,” said Ripperda. “The factory-built model only works when you can source your materials at scale. If a standard product is no longer allowed because of a regulatory change and the mandated substitute isn’t available at the necessary quantities, you’ve got the makings of a slowdown.”

The TMHS reflected expectations of new federal oversight with the six-month regulatory index reaching its highest level since the survey launched in June 2020, but production projections held firm.

The overall outlook, however, remained favorable, and that confidence was corroborated by heightened capital expenditures and plant investment.

Funded by Texas real estate licensee fees, the Texas Real Estate Research Center was created by the state legislature to meet the needs of many audiences, including the real estate industry, instructors, researchers, and the public.

Additional Information, More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

MHLivingNews reported some 13 months ago that MHI had essentially painted themselves into a messaging corner.  The media release above essentially proves that point, though the MHI affiliate clearly did not intend to frame it that way.


How The Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) and Their Corporate Masters Painted Themselves Into a Corner – Consumer Alert – News Analysis

As an example to make the point that MHI, and by extension their affiliates and allies, have boxed themselves into a messaging corner consider the report linked below. It utilizes a Texas Real Estate Research Center media release that relates to a previous MHI claim that has been debunked by MHProNews and MHLivingNews.



The data clearly reflects that Clayton Homes back and MHI branded CrossModTM has been a market failure. Could it pick up steam in 2022? Yes, but if so, it will be because of the headline above. The demand for single family conventional housing is so high that it is essentially dragging manufactured housing along. It is NOT because the public has bought into CrossMods themselves. Multiple MHI member producers told MHProNews that the plan made no sense from early on, as the historic report below illustrates. 



Later, another MHI member source told MHProNews that there was no traction on the plan.


What MHBA’s Executive Director Tom Hardiman may not have known at that time is that the sales of CrossMod homes was a market flop. That is per the reporting by the GSEs in the November 2019 listening session. Further follow ups by MHProNews to industry sources have confirmed that there is still “no traction” to the CrossMod homes project. That blows the balance of MHI’s claims out of the water about this project. Which begs the question. Why do they continue to push on their home page an apparently failed project? Why are they promoting a product that arguably undermines all other manufactured homes, as Hardiman’s logic aptly noted? Whose side is MHI on? 
In late 2018, MHI proclaimed ‘momentum’ and began to ‘promote’ CrossMods. The result? A 2.5 year total manufactured housing industry downturn. That downturn is illustrated above and did not reverse until demand for conventional housing became so high that it essentially pulled manufactured housing after it. Dr. Harold Hunt has said the differently, but has essentially said the same thing in his own words. Note: depending on your browser or device, many images in this report can be clicked to expand.

This report was posted Feb 21, 2018. It predicted that the so-called ‘new class of homes’ could be a ‘Trojan Horse’ for manufactured housing. If one measures performance by new homes shipped, that concern was proven to be accurate. How could we know over 2 years in advance where the industry might be? Because we know the industry from the inside as experts that can apply knowledge and experience to our reports and analysis. MHProNews is not ‘just’ a publisher.  It was apparent from early on that the MHI plan – supported by Clayton Homes, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – was arguably flawed from the outset.  Note MHI has never released the meeting minutes from the closed-door discussion that produced the CrossMod scheme. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/manufactured-housings-trojan-horse/

Instead of growing the industry, for 2½ years after the ‘new class of manufactured homes’ later rebranded as CrossModTM the industry’s sales of HUD Code manufactured homes declined. Ouch, but that too was predicted by MHProNews, as the linked items above clearly demonstrates.

Manufactured Housing Institute “Walk Out,” “Cover Up,” and Shock at their Vegas Event


MHProNews was alone in reporting the walkout of MHI members from the MHI presentation that pitched what became CrossMod. That too was the result of a news tip from one of several sources inside MHI and/or an MHI state affiliate.  It is increasingly apparent to manufactured housing industry members that MHI leaders are ducking a candid discussion on their performance. Just days ago, MHProNews invited MHI leaders to a public discussion or debate of their effectiveness.

Leo, Lesli, Tim at OMHA, other MHI leaders and attorneys,

MHProNews is hereby requesting your commitment to arrange a public discussion of Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) performance at obtaining its own stated goals to be held at the 2022 Biloxi show.

The discussion should be held in front of a live audience that includes manufactured housing professionals. Media should be invited. I’m happy to volunteer to participate in the event with questions for MHI leaders and/or Tim Williams at OMHA, who has previously offered to participate in such a discussion.

Please advise, thank you.



So far, MHI leaders and attorneys have ducked a response.

A screen shot of that email above is as shown.  To the point that Ripperda made about a downturn being possible, the Ohio Manufactured Homes Association attorney Elizabeth Birch made a parallel comment. Perhaps Birch and her colleague Tim Williams wish they could take back such on-the-record remarks, but they said what they did of their own free will and without time pressures.


As a flashback to days when MHI leaders praised, instead of ducked, MHProNews is this one of several comments and other forms of public praise for our objective coverage.

From the same linked article quoted above, from Tim Williams to Industry Voices on MHProNews. 

Among the issues that should be part of such a discussion or debate? Purported illegal behavior by several MHI corporate and/or staff leaders. If MHI ducks (again) such a public discussion, consider it one more prima facie example that something is quite obviously wrong at the Arlington, VA based MHI and with their dominating corporate brands. To learn more, see the report from yesterday and the one that follows.

Mandel Goes There – ‘Big Tech’ ‘Oligarchs’ Must be Criminally Investigated for ‘Anti-Competitive Conduct,’ ‘Aggressively’ ‘Prosecuted’ – Affordable Manufactured Housing

MHI has been ducking accountability for years, as these documented examples reflect. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/masthead/4-quick-documented-examples-of-manufactured-housing-institute-leaders-publicly-ducking-out-on-explaining-their-performance-or-lack-thereof-els-howard-walker/
This graphic above is from 2017, which indicates just how long MHI has been ducking. Ironically, the case could be made that had they debated then they might have fared better than now. Why? Because the documents and third-party the evidence has only grown since that time.

Watch for what’s developing and next on the battle for authentic advocacy by MHI that should lead to robust growth.
