My mom, who spent the last half of her life in various mobile homes (and loved every one), told me they are not "trailor houses"... it's either mobile homes, or manufactured housing. She was somewhat offended if anyone called her home a trailor house.

Admittedly, i've never considered living in one - i think insulation is why - but a lot of insiders try to improve the terminology - 50 years ago, "Swede" Anderson quit farming and started dealing in them, and my dad would like to get him going at midsummer with "How's the trailer house business, Swede?" to which he'd always reply "Twayla homes Clayence, twayla homes!" They had the same exchange every year, then they'd go have coffee.
Nowdays his son Buster runs the business as locally and one of my classmates (their son-in-law) has a thriving dealership in Brainerd. So no matter what you call them or think of them, they can make you a nice living. Unlike most smalltown endeavors, the alternative housing demand actually goes up as times get tougher - think about it :)
Oh BTW, tornadoes are NOT always attracted to them - the only local twister we've had took down a barn, jumped right over Anderson's lot on the hilltop, then swooped down and took the roof off the old creamery by the river on the other side of it. :)
