I must concede that, in UK legislation, the term 'mobile home' is 
explicitly a synonym of 'caravan', which itself is defined as 'any 
structure designed or adapted for human habitation which is capable of 
being moved from one place to another (whether by being towed, or by 
being transported on a motor vehicle or trailer) and any motor vehicle 
so designed or adapted, but does not include— (a) any railway rolling 
stock which is for the time being on rails forming part of a railway 
system, or (b) any tent'.
