Built to Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) standards, manufactured homes are typically placed on a temporary foundation and titled. Manufactured homes can also be placed on a permanent foundation and never titled. Titled manufactured homes may or may not have the axles and wheels in place. For structural reasons, the I-beams must be left in place, even if the home is placed on a permanent foundation. Manufactured homes have a red HUD plate on the left rear side of each section.

Many mobile homes that were built to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards are typically placed on a temporary foundation and titled. Manufacturers stopped making mobile homes in 1976. Mobile homes typically have no label; however, the State of Colorado had a Mobile Home Certificate label for homes built from 1971-1976, and the label was placed on the left rear side of the home.
Definitions. (8) "Mobile home" means a manufactured home built prior to the adoption of the “National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974”, 42 U.S.C. sec. 5401 et seq., as amended.
Modular homes are factory built to standards set by International Residential Code (IRC), and International Building Code (IBC) for non-residential property. Prior to 2003, the standards were set by Uniform Building Code (UBC). Modular homes are typically placed on a permanent foundation and not titled. I-beams may be used during transport for support; however, they are removed when the homes are set. Modular homes are identified by a silver plate located under the kitchen sink.
Definitions.(8.3) "Modular home" means any pre-constructed factory-built building that: (a) is ineligible for a certificate of title pursuant to part 1 of article 29 of title 38, C.R.S.; (b) is not constructed in compliance with the “National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act of 1974”, 42 U.S.C. sec. 5401 et seq., as amended; and (c) is constructed in compliance with building codes adopted by the Division of Housing in the Department of Local Affairs. § 39-1-102, C.R.S.
