What Does Automotive Market Data in the COVID19 Era Tell Affordable Housing Advocates and Manufactured Housing Professionals? Plus, Manufactured Home Markets, Stock Updates


What can the automotive market tell affordable housing advocates and manufactured housing professionals?  To answer that question, a focused survey of automotive reports from a range of media sources will be followed by an MHProNews analysis and commentary that will draw some parallels and factual insights. “Used Cars And Trucks Command High Prices: High Demand, Low Supply · Average New Car Price Tops $45,000, Used Car Price Over $25,000,” said Forbes on 11.30.2021. “Used car prices up 37% year-over-year as supply constraints bite,” said CNET’s Road Show on Nov. 18, 2021. CNET said, “The car market, in general, continues to suffer from major supply issues and the crux of the used car problems still comes from new car inventories. Automakers are churning out fewer new cars, leaving dealers with smaller stocks, so many buyers are turning to used cars instead. In turn, wholesale auction prices climb as demand rises for used cars, and the prices dealers charge also climb.” They added that “JD Power foresees prices remaining high while automakers continue to work through supply chain woes into next year.”

Focus2Move said on 20 December 2021 that the “USA’s car market in November 2021 is still unable to recover effectively and has kept falling in double-digits for several months. In fact, 1.04 million units have been sold in November (-13.3%), leading Year to Date sales at 13.78 million units (+5.4%). Hyundai reported the best performance, gaining 22% YTD.”

From that same source are these pull-quotes (bullets added by MHProNews):

  • “In November 2021 USA’s market is still unable to recover effectively after reporting a 25.6% decrease in the previous month. In fact, 1.04 million units have been sold, falling 13.3% and leading Year to Date sales at 13.78 million units, a 5.4% increase in sales compared to 2020.
  • Following the sharp 2008 crisis which created a collapse to the US vehicles market, with Chrysler group saved by the merge with Fiat and General Moors rescue by the government credit, in 2011 the market has taken a long recovery way and grew up from 10.5 million (2010) to the all-time new record, hit in 2016 with 17.5 million.
  • However, the change in the White House guest and the new protectionist policy, with initial economic boom due to the sharp tax cut, did not benefit the sector and in the last three years, the market has moderately lost, down to 17.23 million in 2017, at 17.34 million in 2018 while ending 2019at 17.02 units sold.
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic sales fell in 2020. In fact, sales have been 14,665,787, reporting a decline of 13.8% compared to 2019.
  • In 2021 the year started positively for the USA market, in fact, in Q1 3.97 million units have been sold, reporting a 13.2% increase in sales compared to Q1 2020.”

Reuters reported on December 16, 2021 that “U.S. new car sales to rise in 2022 on pent-up demand – Edmunds.” That Reuters report also said: “Data firm IHS Markit on Thursday said that U.S. new car sales in 2022 will rise to 15.47 million vehicles from an estimated 15.07 million in 2021. It also said it sees mainland China new car sales rising to 26.92 million in 2023 and 28.99 million in 2024.” The widely touted chip shortage is reportedly a factor. “Shortages of semiconductor chips that control everything from heated seats to infotainment systems have caused major automakers such as General Motors to cut production or, in some cases, build vehicles without certain features.” Hedges said that there are an estimated “289.5 million…cars are on the road in the US.” A closer look at the chip shortage is perhaps merited another time, but certainly manufactured housing has its reported supply chain issues too.

Let’s note that unlike the automotive industry, data is not as easy to come by in the manufactured housing industry. More specifically, facts, figures and third party research are generally not available from the self-proclaimed trade association leader, the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI). Even MHI member Sun Communities made that point last year when they stated that there is no source for general information on the manufactured home community sector. That lack of hard facts and third-party research information begs the question – when other trade groups routinely provide free information to the public, media, officials, and investors – why not MHI?

As publicly traded Sun Communities (SUI) Chairman and CEO Gary Shiffman put it during an earnings call, “there is no national repository of information” and there is a “scarcity of available manufactured housing communities.

MHI claims to represent “all segments” of manufactured housing. But unlike parallel trade groups in other professions such as the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), automotive or recreational vehicle (RV) trade associations, providing monthly data is no longer something that MHI provides on their website to non-member visitors. That failure by MHI to communicate actual data misses the opportunity to get the industry’s products into the news on a monthly basis.

Fortunately, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), which is a fraction of the staff and budget of MHI, does provide a monthly report on new home production officially compiled on behalf of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  MHARR has been providing that report monthly for years, with several recent years available on their website at the link here.  MHARR also provides that report to MHProNews, which has been publishing that information, and used to publish MHI’s monthly data and other reports until MHI suspended that practice.

Put differently, MHI’s leadership apparently made a conscious decision to not provide professionals and the general public (who are not MHI members) the hard facts about manufactured housing production and shipment data.

Even MHI’s touted ‘research’ on CrossModTM homes or another consumer research claim they’ve made are not publicly available. Instead, MHI provides a graphical snapshot and apparently expects others to ‘trust’ that information without seeing the methodology or more granular details, as is the case with other such research. Reasons to dispute and doubt MHI research claims ironically come from federal, university, and at times from their own members published data.

As a brief aside, it is worth noting that it is precisely that vacuum of information from MHI which inspired the new research resource effort on MHLivingNews which has been reported on hundreds of news media sites, per Google. See that report below.

This graphic from Wolf Street and this quote from above tell the dramatic tale of the difference in the leadership of the automotive industry vs. those at MHI. In the automotive industry, from a low of “10.5 million (2010) [cars, trucks, SUV units] to the all-time new record, hit in 2016 with 17.5 million.”


Note 1: Fortune can readily turn to automotive industry sources to gain accurate data about monthly production of new automotive production. But if someone goes to the MHI website, there is no such information available to the public. Note 2: there have long been more automotive units produced monthly than annual production of affordable manufactured housing. This graphic may open to a larger size in some browsers and devices.

That recovery in automotive sales in 2010 to 2016 is a 66.67 percent growth in just 6 years. Automotive sales didn’t crash as hard as manufactured housing during the financial crisis. Following the sharp dip in automotive sales that followed the financial crisis, all types of automotive sales recovered to an all-time high.

By contrast, manufactured housing went on a steady slide following the last peak in 1998 with a blip upward widely attributed to FEMA orders in 2005. From there, manufactured housing kept sliding until the notorious letter from Tim Williams at 21st Mortgage Corporation in 2009 cut off lending to thousands of non-Clayton retailers. 2009 and 2010 where the manufactured housing industry’s ‘bottom.’ Now over a dozen years in the rear-view mirror, and the industry is projected to finally re-cross the 100,000 unit level of production, and manufactured housing is still only about 30 percent of the prior highwater mark of 1998.

These are obvious evidence-based indictments of MHI’s performance, given their own claims, some of which MHI leaders have been made under oath.

The comparison between automotive production and sales vs. manufactured housing production and sales in terms of its 21st century peaks and valleys ought to be an embarrassment to MHI. Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why MHI hides that data?

There is another reason that emerges with sufficient research and reading. There was an apparent sabotage of manufactured housing in 2009 by Berkshire Hathaway owned 21st Mortgage, an MHI member brand. Neither 21st, Clayton Homes, Berkshire Hathaway – which owns Clayton and 21st – nor MHI, nor outside attorneys/board members for them have attempted to respond to inquiries on evidence-based allegations of antitrust and RICO violations.


This report provides numbers of direct quotes from Warren Buffett, Tim Williams, Kevin Clayton and key facts that are still relevant in understanding why manufactured housing has been underperforming for so many years. https://www.manufacturedhomelivingnews.com/coming-epic-affordable-housing-finance-clash-chair-maxine-waters-vs-warren-buffett-clayton-homes-historic-challenges-ahead/

That statement is not to imply that there haven’t been shenanigans in other industries that may have had cover from their respective trade groups. The ‘based on a true story’ movie Tucker recalls the dramatic manner that big business, politicians, and regulators ganged up on behalf of Detroit to orchestrate a takedown of a nascent competitive brand.

Apart from the big screen, the Masthead on MHProNews reported that conventional housing builders reportedly admitted to ‘throttling’ new construction, as reported by Marketplace and detailed as part of our report linked below.

While there have been more monthly reports since this one was published; this one will remain relevant for months if not years to come. Why? Because it pulls together more comparisons relevant to manufactured housing. Specifically, this looks at research by Marketplace from conventional housing. It also points to claims made by modular producer S2A. By looking at other parts of the U.S. economy, and then looking back at manufactured housing, several eye-opening insights emerge that MHI’s mouthpieces do not mention. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/masthead/marketplaces-s2as-insights-september-2021-manufactured-housing-production-shipment-data-pesky-fact-potential-promise-penetrating-analysis/

Is it any surprise that MHI surrogates, mouthpieces, and generally loyal trade media fail to bring such facts and evidence forward?

But possible improprieties by other professions only increases the reasons to question the validity of MHI’s leadership and claims. After all, former U.S. Chamber of Commerce Chief Economist Richard Rahn, Ph.D, and other industry groups have been accused of dirty dealings on behalf of larger brands as opposed to smaller ones. Why should there be any surprise if something similar is occurring in manufactured housing at MHI? Indeed, manufactured housing has its own parallels on that too. There are several examples of former MHI members questioning the integrity, or lack thereof, of MHI and performance. As but one bright-line example, in his exit message before his non-disclosure presumably kicked in, former MHI President and CEO Chris Stinebert politely but pointedly publicly pointed out several areas that he felt needed to be changed.

That outline above – roughly 6 minutes of reading for the average person – is sufficient to cause independently minded people to doubt MHI’s results, leadership, and motivation in the Berkshire era of manufactured housing history.

But let’s note another point that becomes clear when Tom Hardiman, executive director of the Modular Home Builders Association (MHBA) is compared to MHI’s parallel statements. Hardiman publicly ripped the Biden regime’s legislative plan as a political payoff to allies. Hardiman said that the Biden backed bill turned the American Dream into the American nightmare. Why didn’t MHI raise similar alarms?

In 2022, MHProNews will continue to spotlight areas of legal, moral, economic (lost profits for white hat independents) concerns, given that a traditional role for media is to shine a light into dark places and for holding the powerful to account. But as our report linked here illustrates, there will be something new in 2022. Note: this graphic below will be updated after the totals for 2021 are available.  Until then, this is arguably one of the useful trends and data graphics, precisely because it is based on obvious facts and evidence.

Summary and Conclusion

Manufactured housing has been demonstrably underperforming for over 20 years. This is despite the fact that the industry has had two important pieces of federal legislation enacted that were specifically designed to support more affordable housing in general by supporting manufactured housing specifically.

MHI itself says that the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) “Duty to Serve” (DTS) provision that is supposed to support more affordable manufactured housing lending and thus manufactured housing sales has not been implemented. They claim they are working to get DTS enforced. But in 2015, Doug Ryan at what is now Prosperity Now pointedly accused MHI of giving cover for the lack of enforcement of DTS. Per Ryan, MHI was protecting Clayton Homes related lending by not getting DTS fully and properly enforced.

See his context and the full ‘debate’ context in the report, linked here. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/epic-kevin-clayton-moat-rant-analysis-lesli-gooch-debate-defense-doug-ryan-charge-end-clayton-monopoly-over-manufactured-housing-breaching-buffett-berkshire-clayton-monopolistic-moat-method/

Additionally, MHI admits that the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act (MHIA) of 2000 has not been properly enforced. Lesli Gooch, Ph.D., MHI’s CEO has said that MHI specifically wants the so-called “enhanced preemption” provision enforced. Really? If so, why hasn’t MHI used their inside and outside attorneys to sue HUD – and/or a city/town that fails to honor federal zoning/placement preemption of modern HUD Code manufactured homes – to get preemption enforced? Why is there no known evidence that MHI has pressed a HUD Secretary live and in person?





On that same theme, is it any surprise that MHI has apparently ‘missed’ recognizing the death of William “Bill” Matchneer, given that Matchneer was for a time essentially an MHI member? In fairness, MHARR didn’t mention his passage either formally, but he was never a MHARR member.



Why would MHI fail to mention in their emails the death of Matchneer? Could it be because Matchneer, not long before he died, provided a public statement regarding inside information on HUD’s Office of General Counsel?

This may well have been Bill Matchneer’s last public statement, made prior to his death. It offers important insights. Why hasn’t MHI used such information to get HUD to enforce federal preemption for manufactured housing? https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/enforce-the-law-hud-office-of-general-counsel-they-would-not-enforce-enhanced-preemption-provision-of-manufactured-housing-improvement-act-per-tip-longtime-hud-insider-plus-sunday/

There are maxims which often provide keen insights into the human experience. The ones below ought to be considered with MHI in mind. In 2022, after years of documenting the apparent failures of MHI to oversee anything more remarkable than the steady consolidation of the industry into ever fewer hands that often magically happen to be MHI board members.


This is a Buffett quote worth pondering in the light of MHI and related manufactured housing industry controversies.



In about 7½ minutes of reading above, insights are laid out – with more available from linked reports – that outline and document specific reasons why manufactured housing is obviously underperforming compared to other professions. During an affordable housing crisis, despite MHI’s talking points and cheerleading by their mouthpieces, the industry is crawling instead of galloping past conventional housing, as former Harvard’s fellow Eric Belsky projected some 2 decades ago. MHI used to tout that statement…

…but that was before the Berkshire era of manufactured housing. Now, that statement is not to be found on MHI’s website. Is it any surprise?

Some of these firms invest in manufactured housing, or are otherwise connected, but may do other forms of investing or business activities too.

                            • NOTE: The chart below includes the Canadian stock, ECN, which purchased Triad Financial Services, a manufactured home industry lender
                            • NOTE: Drew changed its name and trading symbol at the end of 2016 to Lippert (LCII).
                            • NOTE: Deer Valley was largely taken private, say company insiders in a message to MHProNews on 12.15.2020, but there are still some outstanding shares of  the stock from the days when it was a publicly traded firm.  Thus, there is still periodic activity on DVLY.
