Vexing Questions Dogging Manufactured Home Industry Go Unanswered by Key Figures

Questions unlock the door to understanding, especially when the party questioned provides answers that can be examined.

There are any number of issues that arise day-by-day that impact manufactured housing that may have little or nothing to do with the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI). Something similar could be said of several key MHI member companies.

That’s reality.

That said, it is MHI that has taken upon itself the mantle of representing all segments of manufactured and factory-built housing segments. That is also reality.

  • Does that MHI claim of representing all segments of manufactured housing include the interests of independents apart from the larger conglomerates that dominate MHI?

  • Has MHI taken seriously the pledge of former chairman Nathan Smith to be a pro-active rather than a reactive trade body?  If so, why does the MHI continue to be blindsided or slow to respond to vexing issues like the downturn in production, or the rising tide of zoning related issues?



  • Has MHI ever seriously considered applying the good argument made by their former chairman Tim Williams?
Then MHI Chairman Williams said it, but why have they never acted upon it? 
  • If so, why are there so many examples of fake news about the industry?

When will MHI begin to post on their own website the key evidence of good laws that are not being properly enforced by federal officials?


Why did William ‘Bill’ Matchneer, J.D, end up separating from a law firm that MHI reportedly used on several occasions, after Matchneer confirmed on a Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC) conference call his consistent view that enhanced preemption was a key element of the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000?

See report linked here for the significance of this issue. Bradley never responded to queries about this topic. Nor has MHI.



Are key members and/or staff of MHI working in collusion with specific people at HUD, FHFA, or the GSEs to keep good laws from being fully and properly enforced?




When will MHI move beyond photo ops to measurable performance that addresses the interests of millions of Americans and thousands of independent businesses?

MHI? Will you hold your own members to your self-proclaimed code of ethical conduct?


Or is that code of conduct just more window dressing for those who don’t pay close attention?
