Tiny House Comparisons, $50,000 Tiny House Vs. $165,000 Tiny House – Millions of Video Views

May 21st, 2019



Screen capture – still scene from the video posted further below.

No spoilers for this video, just the facts.


In 3 weeks, this video has had 2,173,639 views as of the time the Daily Business News on MHProNews drafted this article.

There were about 37,000 ‘thumbs up,’ vs. 1800 thumbs down.

There were 2,801 comments posted. That’s more comments than the total number of views of hundreds to thousands of videos that focus on manufactured homes.

Bear in mind, that the evidence reveals that just the name ‘tiny house’ isn’t itself a magic door opener with the general public when it comes to selling more ‘rebranded’ manufactured homes. Several manufactured home producers have jumped onto the tiny house band wagon, some with very little success.

In fact, the word heard from insiders in the manufactured home industry’s 3 biggest brands and their tiny house sales would lead us to think that their results have been rather sleepy.

This video below is nearly 20 minutes long, and it still has over 2.1 million views?

To understand why manufactured housing is struggling during an affordable housing crisis is both easy and hard, depending on where your mind is at to begin with. For those who ‘trust’ the industry’s ‘leadership,’ it will be harder to grasp that the well has been to a significant extent poisoned. How it was poisoned is exemplified in reports like the one below.

That sobering reality requires the hard work of un-poisoning the well.


That requires discipline, see last night’s video linked below.


Millions of Americans want what we as an industry offer, they just don’t want what they mistakenly have been led to think that the industry is.  Just think, you could pay less for a manufactured home than the tiny houses in this video.

To change the dynamic requires a willingness to break from what may seem like the herd.  It is the contrarian’s that advance a cause.
