Any super-insulated single wide, mobile homes?
Sitting in a friend’s mobile home last night, I started to wonder why I haven’t seen a PassivHaus or Net Zero or similar manufactured single wide. Wouldn’t it be much easier to do the complete envelope in a factory? The quality of workmanship could be better maintained in the factory as well. If there was a pitched roof, the mechanicals could be under it. The standard single wide shape also gives you a lot of room for the volume of the space.
This is not an idle question. I live near a university that put in a mobile home park for supplemental housing back in 1983 and the trailers are well past their prime. Not sure they were prime to begin with.
