Understanding Manufactured Home Insurance
What Manufactured Home Insurance Covers
Manufactured home insurance is a special insurance type for manufactured homes. These policies typically cover everything found in a standard homeowners insurance policy, including:
- Dwelling coverage
- Personal property coverage
- Liability coverage
- Additional living expenses
Most standard mobile home insurance policies do not include coverage for flood damage, in-transit damage, earthquakes, or hurricanes. However, these coverages may be available as add-ons. Consult with your insurance specialist to find out what additional coverages may be available to you.
How Much Insurance Do You Need?
The amount of manufactured home insurance you need will depend on your individual risk level. For example, if your home is located in an area that experiences heavy rainfall or hurricanes, you may need to strengthen your standard policy by adding on additional coverages for these weather conditions. In most cases, however, the standard policy will suffice for your manufactured home insurance needs. Consult with your insurance specialist to understand how much coverage you need for your home.
What Factors into Manufactured Home Insurance Cost?
Several factors dictate the cost of your manufactured home insurance policy, including:
- The state in which you live
- Environmental and geographical risks, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, and wildfires
- Neighborhood crime statistics
- Police, ambulatory, and fire department response quality in your district
- Value, age, and condition of the mobile or manufactured home
You may also be able to save money by taking advantage of available discounts, such as bundled policies, adding safe home features, or enhancing your home’s energy efficiency. Discuss with your EEB manufactured home insurance specialist to understand the details of your premium cost.

Is manufactured home insurance more expensive than other types of insurance?
Manufactured home insurance policies are more expensive than traditional home insurance due to the home’s decreased ability to withstand emergency situations, such as flooding, extreme weather conditions, and wildfires.
