In the 1870s, the first mobile home park was built in North Carolina for vacationers traveling to and from the Outer Banks. Fast forward to 2022: The mobile and manufactured home industry is a top performer in the U.S. housing sector, with an estimated 22 million Americans living in these homes.

According to Statista, as of December 2021, Texas has over 137,000 mobile homes. Florida follows with over 50,000. North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Michigan and California have around 25,000 each.

With 54.6% of mobile home owners having lived in their current home for more than 10 years, the mobile home industry has become a viable, affordable living option for many Americans — and a lucrative opportunity for investors. Migrations to warmer climates, rising household expenses and high occupancy are all factors that point to substantial growth in the industry this year.
