SunBelt's Weather-Wise Choices: Selecting Mobile Homes Fit for Florida's Climate

Many potential new Florida residents consider mobile homes until they encounter the extremes of the state's climate. Then, they wonder if they'll be safe and comfortable in a Florida mobile or manufactured home. The answer is yes! According to the Manufactured Housing Institute, manufactured homes are as secure in severe weather as site-built homes. New manufacturing guidelines and regulations have made living in a mobile or manufactured home as safe as living in any other type of home. 

SunBelt Home Sales specialists have decades of experience helping new residents choose a mobile home that gives them peace of mind. Read on to learn some crucial factors before deciding on your new home. 

Can Manufactured Homes Withstand the Florida Climate?


Manufactured homes have come a long way in terms of durability and safety. High-wind zone mobile homes, like hurricane-resistant mobile homes, are specifically made to be robust. They hold up in serious windstorms and other types of severe weather. With add-ons like hurricane tie-downs and metal roofs, they are built to withstand Florida's intense climate. 

What Makes a Manufactured Home Safe? 

The top priorities for any mobile home manufacturer are safety and durability. These two things make their homes suitable for Florida's climate. Elements like thermal windows and UV protection offer resistance against natural disasters and harsh weather conditions that Florida homeowners regularly encounter. 

What Makes a Mobile Home Comfortable in Florida? 

Everyone has heard about Florida's sweltering summers. Living comfortably in a mobile home must be energy-efficient with eco-friendly cooling solutions. Examples are advanced ventilation features for consistent temperatures, heat-tolerant models, durable insulation for temperature control, and mold-resistant features to withstand excess storm moisture. 

Guide to Buying a Mobile Home in Florida 

  • Consider the following features in your search for a weather-resistant mobile home: 

  • Hurricane-Resistant Materials
