I too live in a manufactured or "mobile" home, and when I heard of this story, I was shocked. I live in Raleigh, NC, and I asked the guys that I bought the house from at http://www.suitshomes.com , and they said my home was more than durable enough to be struck by lighting.

I thought that traditional wood frame houses had similar issues when struck by lightning.

Your home or my house should have a lighting rod installed.The salesman is not telling you the whole truth,but he isn't really 100% wrong either.A strike on any type of building can cause major damage.Get a rod installed,it is a cheap piece of mind.Good luck.
