Most people think of trailers and trailer parks when they hear mobile homes. This is what I thought before I bought mine. This morning, someone asked me how much I paid per month to rent the land out. I told her I own the land and my home is strapped and secure and attached to the land. Nowadays, mobile homes are built to withstand winds up to 180 miles per hour. They often include impact windows and metal roofs. In the Florida Keys, most mobile homes built after 1976 are financeable. My home withstood Hurricane Irma with no structural damage. We lost the back side awning, which was easily replaced. We never lost electricity either.
