When it comes to living space, portability has so many perks. Bored with your current surroundings? Just pick up and go. Natural disaster? No problem. Plus, the transportable homes we see today are a far cry from the standard trailers or RVs of days gone by. Some are architectural masterpieces, others, eco-conscious sensations. Whether it's a futuristic camper, portable log cabin, or post-disaster house-to-go, the number of innovative transportable homes is astounding.

Implications - These mobile homes demonstrate the pattern of making products that are transportable, as this is seen as a convenience for consumers. Corporations looking to make their products more appealing to consumers may consider ways to enhance a product's convenience.
