Every mobile home starts with an incredibly rigid and durable steel frame that forms the base of the house. The walls, flooring, and all other components of the home are then built on top of this frame as a single unit.

The steel frame allows for the entire home to be picked up in a single piece either by forklifts or specialized trucks, and placed onto a highway truck for delivery to virtually anywhere. It's then set either on poured concrete piers or concrete blocks and ready for use. One of the great features with these houses however is that if it's ever required, you can raise the house again and transport it to a new location.

Since the entire house must be able to be moved as a single unit, you're restricted by the highway act which determines the width of a load which can be transported. Because of this Mobile Homes are the smallest type of prefab houses and typically the least expensive.
