Do all mobile homes have HUD tags?

Friday, February 14, 2020

All manufactured homes leave the factory with at least one HUD tag. It’s also called a “red tag,” and the official HUD moniker is “HUD label.” There is one on each section of a double- or triple-wide, each with different but consecutive numbers. 

    Over the years they may corrode down to unreadable, get sided over in a remodeling,  fall off, or just plain disappear. Here’s some links to articles about questions we often get asked about HUD tags:

What does the HUD tag look like and where do I find it on a mobile home?

Can I determine the year of a manufactured/mobile home from the HUD tag (red tag)?

How can I replace a missing HUD tag (HUD Certification Label) for a mobile/manufactured home? 

 What is a "HUD label verification letter" for a mobile/manufactured home? 

 What is a "HUD data plate/performance certificate" for a mobile/manufactured home?   

• Is it illegal to remove the HUD tag (verification label) from a mobile/manufactured home?

• Does a modular home have a HUD tag?
