What Is A Double Wide Mobile Home?

Double Wide Mobile Homes – What makes them “double”

Simply put, Double Wide Mobile Homes are two sections that bolt together to make one large unit.
Mobile Homes come in a lot of shapes and sizes. Normally, 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.

In this picture you can see the seam that goes down the middle of the home – this is very typical of older mobile homes.
New models are now made to hide this seam, as in this picture below.

Building Mobile and Manufactured Homes this way makes it easy to transport and install the sections.

Sizes and dimensions:

There are many Mobile Home Manufacturers and each will have slightly different styles, shapes, and sizes.
In general, double wide Mobile Homes sections come in these dimensions:
10 feet, 12 feet, 14 feet, and 16 feet wide
42 feet to 67 feet long
This does not include any porches, awnings, covered parking, sheds, additions, etc. So, a double wide can be from 840 sqft to 1876 sqft. Of course these are general numbers and actually many Mobile Homes can be ordered from the factories with adjustments made to the size over all.
