Modular, meaning that the sections of the home are brought in on a low boy flat bed transport trailer and crane lifted or rolled onto a poured in place foundation and perimeter and interior footing system that accomodates the perimeter and interior payload requirements. A Modular is considered a site built home and must comply with all local building codes and ordidances.
A Manufactured Home (HUD) goes down the same assembly lines and is built exactly the same way as a modular with the exception that it is built on its own mainframe chassis and hauling components (axles and wheels). It is delivered to the site by a semi tractor calles a totter and is spotted on the site whence it is then set up on a HUD approved engineered mechanical foundation system and a skirting wall which is also load bearing capable.

Then call the Zoning department And the Building department to double check their regulations.
Be careful about recorded CC&R's that can be recorded on the property which the City/County doesnt look for; some dont allow for installation of a manufactured home on private land
Also they are no longer called mobile homes after 1976. what you are probably thinking is a manufactured home which when installed on a permanent foundation system is assessed just like "Real Property" or a house by the tax assessor.
In this market you can liekly find a stick built house at a better price that will retain more equity than a manufactured home as well...Good Luck!
Amanda is correct about a Realtor being able to give it to you. However, it is best to talk to the County as they have the most up to date records. You can go to http://gis.co.san-diego.ca.us/Geocortex/Essentials/Web/Viewe and enter the APN for the parcel and it will give you the zoning.
We hope this helps!
