Description

WFMY discovered 30,000 mobile homes are transported across North Carolina highways each year. Mobile home dealers take back wheels and axles after a delivery - they are recycled, without inspection, and placed back on new mobile homes. Nearly 60% of these 15,000 pound monsters do not have brakes. The mobile home industry is in the process of asking the state to allow bigger mobile homes to cross North Carolina highways.
