Well, the code thing is probably true. I never have seen a 'permanent' structure built with 2x2 and 1x2 pine, minimum is 2x4 studs every 16". Now, if a mobile home is built to the same code, how come the walls are thinner?
As for the pre-fabs, while they are built to the same code, they are also then hauled down the road assembled, exposing them to stresses that a built in place structure never gets, like miles of bumps, curves, etc. Uses up several years worth of structural integrety just moving them.
