Prepare Now!

​Regardless of how well a mobile/manufactured home is built, anchor system failures are the primary cause of most fatalities.  Even well-built manufactured homes can be destroyed if they become airborne. MH anchorage systems are designed to provide lateral stability, NOT to resist uplift forces. So, whether you already have a MH or plan to purchase one, there are actions you can take to improve the survivability of it.
