Abstract:

A survey of all mobile home plants in the United States showed considerable differences in the amounts of wood and gypsum panel products used in single-wide units as compared with increasingly popular and larger double-wides. Among the top five mobile home manufacturing states, rather sizable differences in panel product preferences were reported-especially between states in the Southeast as compared with states in the Midwest and far West. Major panel products used were softwood and hardwood plywood, hardboard, particleboard, insulation board and acoustical fiberboard, and gypsum board. Gypsum board has made significant penetration into the interior panel market, previously dominated by hardwood plywood. Author
