Double Wide Mobile Homes
What makes them
Simply put, Double Wide
Mobile Homes are two sections that bolt
together to make one large unit.
Factory built homes come in a lot of shapes and sizes.
though, they are rectangular, and usually they come in two or more
pieces. These pieces are called sections, and when they are
assembled correctly they make a beautiful home.

and Manufactured Homes this way
makes it easy to transport and install the sections.
There are many Manufacturers of these types of properties and each
will have slightly different styles, shapes, and sizes (and costs).
"double wide" homes come in these
8, 10, 12, 14, and 16 feet wide
42, 48, 50, 56, and 60
This does not
include any porches, awnings,
covered parking, sheds, additions, etc. So, a double wide can
be from 672 sqft to 1920 sqft.
these are general numbers and actually many manufactured homes can be ordered
from the factories with adjustments made to the size over all.
a doublewide is always two sections. If you see a singlewide (single
section) with a "push out" or slide out section, this is not a true
double wide property. This is still a singlewide with a push out.
Insurance and lending companies will classify these as single
A "triplewide" would be 3 sections built to all go
together, obviously this would be a much larger home. Typically
the sections would come in 2 that are the same size, with another 3rd
one that is smaller.
