Do they still make these?

They look like a lawyer's wet dream.

Wouldn't these be a bit wanky? Essentially using the same kind of mechanical connection as communications, a punchdown recept?

Those are still put in mobile homes that are being manufactured as we speak. There are a few companies in this area that manufacture these homes, but those devices are no where to be found, I wouldn't use one if they were. The good news is, a little trimming of the Sheetrock will allow for a pop-in box, and new devices, bad news is, you can't use a 20ci pop in as the walls are only about 2-1/2" deep. You must use the 14ci. I hate those things...

Seems like I've only seen them in single wide trailers? Double wides from recollection have regular devices/enclosures... Could be wrong, but seems that way.

That all depends on the manufacturer of the home, and the level of quality they choose, so you are most likely correct.

An RV dealer told me that most RV's and manufactured homes are built in a particular county in Indiana.
