Mobile homes have always had a stigma of being a second-rate home. They’re cramped and cheaply made, nowhere near the quality of traditional housing. But lately there has been a shift that many are unaware of. With over 20 million Americans living in manufactured housing we have to ask the question: Are mobile homes becoming the housing of choice for many in the middle class?
We’re long past the days of calling mobile homes “Trailers”. Today’s mobile homes are, in a lot of ways, built better than your conventional stick built homes. With 2×6 walls, mobile homes have more insolation than the walls found in most suburban neighborhoods. But that’s not the only thing separating these mobile monsters from conventional housing these days.
Bathrooms have not been overlooked in this new era either. Long gone are the days of manufacturers installing large, bulky garden tubs. In today’s homes, bathrooms are being constructed with beautiful shower “rooms”. Fitted with rainfall shower heads, benches for relaxing, and door-less entries, these showers make for a gorgeous separation between His and Her sides of the bathroom.
