How Long Do Mobile Homes Last?

Mobile homes shipped since 1964 have an average lifespan of 55.8 years, according to the Manufactured Home Association of Oklahoma. This number represents a significant rise in longevity from the 10.5-year average lifespan of homes shipped in 1945.

The primary reason behind the rise in the quality of manufactured homes is the legal need to maintain U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development building standards during home construction, according to the Manufactured Home Association of Oklahoma. Manufacturing of the homes are also monitored by the National Conference of States on Building Codes and Standards, assuring that the construction meets HUD building codes.
