Client (big one) says THEIR guidlines require me to describe these wobbly-boxes as "MODULARS" even though they are delivered to the site towed behind a Kenworth, have a metal frame undercarriage, wheels and a tongue (which are removed after the floors are installed and bolted to the concrete foundation) HUD tags, and are added to the assesor's roll when the Building Official signs them off.
I read where a MODULAR is quite different: Built to local codes only, delivered on a trailer, and bolted to the foundation as well.
Everyone who sells these wobblers around here referrs to the as "MANUFACTURED" not "MODULAR". SO: Which is it? I'm voting for MANUFACTURED>
