I am in NC but I believe hud has federal guidelines. I know here it is based on the number of bedrooms. The inspector will walk through and use a common sense approach. They will not allow more bedrooms than the mobile home was manufactured for. Check out this site www.huduser.org/database/fmr.html Take Care ScottS(NC)
Manufactured Housing and Section 8 - Posted by JoeSoCal

I decided to go about calling my local housing authority as I was curious to know what the section 8 voucher amounts were in terms of manufactured housing. I talked to at least five different people and got five different answers.
they ran the gamut of “i dont know, its a case by case sort of thing,” to less than a regular home, to the same as a SFR. One said, they only base it on the number of bedrooms.
Does anyone have any experience in dealing with section 8 and applying it to MHs? I am particularly interested in Southern California, but would appreciate any insight into this.
