THE PILOT STATED THAT THE WIND WAS GUSTING AND SHIFTING AS HE WAS LANDING WITH A CUMULUS BUILD-UP NEARBY. HE REPORTED THAT DURING HIS LANDING, HE INCREASED HIS AIRSPEED TO COMPENSATE FOR A GUSTY CROSSWIND. THE PILOT STATED THAT THE MECHANICAL BRAKES DID NOT SEEM TO BE STOPPING THE AIRCRAFT DURING THE ROLL-OUT, SO HE INITIATED A GO-AROUND. HE STATED THAT DURING THE GO-AROUND, THE WIND SHIFTED TO A QUARTERING TAIL WIND. THERE WERE TREES NEAR THE END OF THE RUNWAY. HE TRIED TO FLY THROUGH A GAP IN THE TREES, BUT BELIEVED THE PLANE MAY HAVE BRUSHED THEM. SUBSEQUENTLY, THE AIRCRAFT LOST AIRSPEED AND CRASHED INTO A MOBILE HOME.
