My "excuse" for failing to mention ANL & UMH as being part of the Manufactured Housing sector is mainly due to their not being included in RSR's coverage world. As I know you know, RSR excludes many small cap REITs, and I use RSR as my main source of data. So, from my point of view, the too-small universe of MHs is unfortunately made up of only 3 members.

Which is most certainly not to say that some small cap REITs can't be better investments than their large cap counterparts. In fact, last year, almost all of them were. :-) But since one of the filters I try to employ is an investment grade bond rating (for better or worse), it makes it more difficult for small cap REITs to make my watch list. (Of course, it also depends on the definition of "small cap", since most of the REITs I own would probably be considered "small cap" by non-REITsters.)
