How to calculate the weight of a mobile home
Older homes are usually lighter. Newer ones tend to be taller and the
materials used are heavier, therefore the newer homes are heavier. Make
sure you err on the side of caution when calculating the weight.
Older homes will run between 35 and 40 lbs. per
square foot, and newer
homes will run 45 to 50 lbs. per square foot.
So, measure your length and width. Multiply the
length x width.
take that number and multiply it by the pounds per square foot
- 40 LBS for older homes (1960-1980)
50 LBS for newer
70 LBS for newer
homes with high ceilings and drywall
576 sqft. 576 x
40lbs = 23,040 total
pounds. Then round up to the nearest 1,000.
you pad the numbers if it is critical (like going over a bridge!)
