Yes, it's rare for people to use a generic term when a specific term is
available.  But we're trying
to find a generic term to encompass several specific terms.

In what way is a touring caravan not mobile?  In what way is a touring
caravan not a home?

In what way is a static caravan irrevocably immobile to the extent that a
house made of bricks is?

Far worse than using "mobile home" as a generic term for touring caravans,
static caravans,
RVs, etc. (a usage documented by Wikipedia at
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_home) is
using the specific term "caravan" to include RVs, trailers, touring
caravans, static caravans, etc.
