I don't know about dry stack but here is a website that has some good
info on soil anchors and anchoring mobile homes for lateral loads.

Jordan,

According to HUD, dry stack CMU is allowed.
Reference: http://www.pathnet.org/sp.asp?id=1003
for the Manufactured Homes Installation Training Manual.

It is a pretty good document representing practices and engineered 
solutions.  HUD sponsored this and participated in the development.  The

Manufactured Homes Insititute also participated.

Regards,
Harold Sprague
