The term 'mobile home' is definitely British English, and there is a 
series of Mobile Homes Acts regulating them. But I do not have much 
familarity with the subject, and do not know whether a distinction is 
made between mobile homes and static caravans in general usage. There is 
also a term 'park home', which I think designates the more permanent 
type of residential home within this category (but informally, probably 
not in the legislation).
