What is mobile home insurance?

In Texas, mobile home insurance covers you if one of several perils causes damage to your:

  • Dwelling. 

  • Personal belongings.

  • Other structures on your property.

Our policies also help cover costs if:

  • Covered damages make your mobile home temporarily uninhabitable.

  • Someone claims you’re responsible for their bodily injury or property damage.

  • A guest is injured on your property.

We offer both replacement cost and actual cash value (ACV) coverage. While ACV policies are less expensive, getting replacement cost coverage usually allows you to replace your property with available items that are of like kind and quality.

So do you need mobile home insurance or manufactured home insurance?

In truth, mobile homes and manufactured homes are very similar. Both are built on a chassis in a factory and transported to their building site. The big difference is that manufactured homes meet the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) instituted safety standards.

The result? People tend to use these terms interchangeably, so we do, too. 

Additional coverage options

Buying these and other endorsements can help you tailor your coverage for your situation. 

How is mobile home insurance different from homeowners insurance?

Mobile home and standard home insurance typically offer similar coverage for the same types of perils, including fire, theft, windstorm, and burst pipes. 

However, mobile homes have a greater chance of suffering damage because they're often made of lighter materials and not secured to the ground or a foundation. The insurance industry’s response to this additional risk is the HO7 policy for mobile homes.

You should note, too, that modular homes are a different type of factory-made home altogether. Modular homes are built off-site in sections to the same state, city, and local standard as traditionally built homes.  These homes usually require standard home insurance.

How much does mobile home insurance cost?

Every mobile home is different, so the cost of insuring them varies. Some factors that insurance companies may weigh when determining your premium include: 

  • Your location.

  • Your mobile home’s age.

  • Your mobile home’s square footage.

  • Renovations you’ve made.

  • Your claims history.

  • Your personal property’s value.
