A manufactured home is a home that is built at one location, and then delivered on a large truck to a home site.
While the home is traveling on roads to the home site, it's called a mobile home and is treated by the state as a vehicle.
Once it arrives at the home site where it will remain, and it is anchored to the ground by "tie-downs", it's then considered by the state to be a manufactured home, and is subject to property taxes, just like a "site-built" home.
During a storm with high winds, such as a hurricane, manufactured homes are viewed by public officials as riskier to stay in. For this reason, people living in manufactured homes are often the first people asked to leave and seek a public shelter where they can "ride out" the storm.
Please understand that a hurricane is an extreme weather condition, and that people in "site-built" homes may be asked to go to shelters too.
If a manufactured home is well-maintained, it can last for many years. I've seen manufactured homes in my area that were built in the 1970s and '80s.
You may find it difficult to obtain financing for a manufactured home. Therefore, most are purchased for cash.
Also, there are some aspects of purchasing a manufactured home that are unique to that type of home. Mainly, they involve the identification stickers that the government uses to identify the home. Once you have a purchase contract and are waiting to close on your home, your real estate agent and closing agent can handle those details.
Good luck with your property search.
