I saw a mobile home off of the main road going through town several miles from here. It had a carport-style roof over it. We do not have Google Street View here, so I cannot try to find a picture of it. This is the best that I found easily, but the one that I saw did not look like a hat. The pictures that I found before this were entirely supported by the mobile home, not by posts.

A manufactured home is built to HUD standards on a chassis with wheels and a trailer arm and a modular home is transported on one or more trailers, moved via crane, permanently bolted to concrete, and must conform to all local, state or regional building codes.

Mobile homes have not been produced in over forty years. One standard was made in 1974 and another in 1976, requiring far higher quality, and they are called "Manufactured homes" to reflect that.
