Most manufactured home insurance policies are very similar to a typical single-family home policy. They cover the structure of the home, your personal belongings, and liability, to name a few coverages. However, these policies may have more restrictions regarding the type of losses they cover.
In most cases, the reason you need a different policy for a manufactured home is because the utilities in the home are not up to state code. Manufactured homes have a different code they follow for utilities, including elective plumbing and heating, called the HUD code, which is set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and supersedes local building codes. This is why most insurance companies have a specific type of policy for manufactured homes.

How can I get coverage for 100% of my medical bills after a not-at-fault collision?
"I was in an accident and it was the other driver's fault. The police report didn't really determine fault, and their insurance company is only offering to pay 80% of my medical bills. Is there a way to get his insurance company to pay more? Do I need to sue the other driver to get him to cover the rest of my medical bills?"
