Though it may still be striving for social acceptance, mobile homes have achieved a certain legal acceptance, according to John F. Rick, attorney for the Virginia Manufactured and Modular Housing Association. Rick said disputes with localities over state zoning laws passed in the 1990s are largely resolved.
