What percentage of American Households are Mobile Homes, RVs, Boats, and Vans?



There are 115,610,216 homes in America which house the nation’s more than 300 million residents. Of those homes, the American Community Survey estimates that about 6.0% of them are mobile homes, RVs, boats, and vans.

This can differ by county though. Some counties have up to 60% of the homes in the county that are mobile homes, RVs, boats, and vans. Others seem to have none. The graphic below shows what counties have the largest percentage of these homes in their borders and which have the lowest. The color represents the percentage and the size of the bubble represents the number of homes in that county.
