Remember those days when you’d be on a road trip and all of a sudden a house would drive by in the other lane? Or more accurately, one half of a house, followed by the other half? You don’t see those double-wides much anymore. But with affordable housing harder to come by, manufactured homes are throwing off their stigma as unattractive, flimsy and tornado-prone and making a bit of a comeback.
