ID or VIN Number Locations

Where can I find ID or VIN Numbers, MFG information on mobile homes?
I have some homes I am selling and I have no idea where to look for the VIN numbers to apply for a new title? Please Help

The vin number should be on the old title...

The vin number will always be stamped into the front cross member of the frame...The number will run from top to bottom in a vertical column...If you stand at the hitch location...face the home...the number will be on the front cross member to your left..about 2 ft in from the outside...

Often these numbers are painted or rusted over...take a wire brush and clean the area...use the old paper...pencil trace over the number...

All homes built since 1976 have a data plate on the inside somewhere...Unfortunately some home owners remove them...or paint over them..They look like this..

Almost always the tax rolls have the number as well...Some states have a process to supply abandoned home titles..you will have to check with your local title office for the procedure..

Good Luck
