How can you tell if a mobile home is a doublewide or singlewide?
Friday, August 10, 2018
Mobile home sections are manufactured in widths from 12 to 16 feet wide. If the dimension of the short side is between 12 and 16 feet, it is a singlewide, and 24 to 32 feet means you are looking at a doublewide. You could, of course, look under the home to see if there are two steel frames and a marriage line and, also, a doublewide will have a small, metal HUD tag (like the one shown below) on both the front and back long walls; but the dimension of the short side of the home is the easiest way to tell.
