What year did they stop usig particle board for flooring in mobile homes?

Thank you for your question Carol,

    I understand your interest in an answer to this question if your are considering the purchase of a Mobile Home. For me from a personal standpoint I simply do not have that answer for you. It is an Industry where I have had little exposure to over the years. But I am aware that particle board was the most common material employed as a sub-strate for decades. Even if they have moved away from the "official" particle board material to "OSB", that is not much more than "large" particle board. But still it "is" better than the old school particle board which was and is a dreadful material to have under your feet especially within a structure that has an "open" space beneath it's foundation. What I have done for you is provide a couple web addresses for you to "copy and paste" into your browser that will take you to one of the most well known Mobile Home manufacturer and the second is a general site that has multiple supplemental producers where you can discover useful information by simply contacting any of them directly to get the answer you desire...ok? That's it Carol I hope this helps you with your search, feel free to return anytime...

These are large floor packages usually over 3500 sq. ft. of 18" x 18" Marble and Granite and many other types of Marble and sizes. They are specialty stores where the floor package can cost upwards of $50,000 for one store. I have also done "Structure" stores and J.
