Toyota Positioned to Enter U.S. Prefab Market

If you’re feeling self-conscious that your new Toyota Camry doesn’t quite match your living situation, then it’s OK. Now you can have a generic beige house to match your generic beige sedan! Toyota has been in the business of mass-producing modular homes for almost forty years. It’s not exactly a secret; there was apparently a big media blitz to announce newer manufacturing initiatives back in 2006. But they’re only doing it in Japan, and it’s not nearly as well-advertised as the 2014 Corolla. Call it Toyota’s vision of what Sears did in the early half of the 20th century.

I see it just about every day and if you are a modular home builder you also hear it a lot. So what are the differences?
