What is the difference between mobile homes (or trailer) and mini homes?

Single-Section Manufactured Homes (Mini Homes) are residential homes built to Canadian Standards Association A-277 (Canadian National Building Code). Standard specs include engineered roof trusses, 2 x 10 floor joists, 2 x 6 exterior walls, 2 x 4 interior walls, 8′ ceilings and primed and painted drywall. Modular homes with truss floors are typically designed to go on a basement or foundation.

Mobile Homes are manufactured to Canadian Standards Association Z-240. Standard specs include 2 x 8 floor joists on a steel frame, 2 x 4 or 2 x 6 exterior walls, 7½’ ceilings, and gypsum paneling. Older generation Mobile Homes were built on a steel frame were typically set on concrete blocking piers or sono tubes (cement pylons).
