3 Benefits of Mobile Home Living

January 11, 2019

A mobile home is a small, portable housing unit that can be towed like a trailer. This style of living has become increasingly popular in the past few decades. Where did this growth come from?

Early History

Mobile home started off as travel trailers, used for camping and long-term travel. During the Great Depression, people started living in trailers that were meant for travel out of necessary. They often stayed in one place and transformed the units into permanent homes. In the 1950’s and 1960’s, companies began marketing mobile homes as an inexpensive form of housing. The units built during these decades were smaller and less luxurious than the ones we have today. They were made for transport between cities, typically by workers who constantly relocate from site to site. The mobility of this low-cost housing solution perfectly suited the mobile workers.

Mobile Homes Today

Over several decades, the mobile home industry has evolved. Units are now larger and have more luxurious amenities. The freedom to move from one place to another make these units a popular choice. According to the 2011 US Census, mobile homes make up 6.4% of the US housing market. While an exact number is unknown, an estimated 20 million Americans live in mobile homes.

Here are just a few perks of living in a mobile home:

A Travel Lifestyle

Many mobile home residents have chosen life on the road. They enjoy the luxury of travelling anywhere on the continent in the comfort of their own home. This is more affordable than conventional travel. You can skip expenses such as airplane tickets, hotels, and (most significantly) paying rent back home.


Most mobile homes don’t look like a trailer from the inside. In fact, they can be more spacious than many permanent homes. Units can include 2 or 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, a bathtub, laundry facilities, and even an elegant island in the kitchen.


Housing and property prices are rising, making it increasingly difficult to purchase a house. A mobile home is an affordable option for many people. Not all mobile home residents travel with it—the units can be assembled on-site (rather than towed) and serve as an inexpensive permanent home option.

Mobile homes are one of the most significant housing innovation in the 20th century. What started out as simple travelling trailers are now a great option for mobile living. Many people opt for the convenience, comfort, and savings that a mobile home provides.
