Manufactured Housing is a major source of affordable housing in the United States. Today Manufactured housing compares well with site built housing. Manufactured house owners do enjoy an affordable alternative that is reasonably sized and has all amenities of a traditional house.

The present law protects the consumer, it assures that a manufactured house will be properly installed. The Board believes that New Hampshire, will better address at the State level the manufactured housing industry needs and concerns which are unique to New Hampshire.
