Manufactured Home Serial Number Search

Postby » Sat Dec 31, 2005 4:51 am

I purchased a used manufactured home on a private lot several years ago. I am trying to determine the manufacturer of my home. I was able to locate a serial number on the corner of the house, but it did not list a manufacturer. Does anybody know of a website that has the ability to search for additional information using only the serial number of the home. (the mh is a double wide if that makes a difference).
Thanks
Brad

If you look under the kitchen sink, or bathroom sink in master bath it will tell you what the manufacturer is. If that is not there then look on the tongue of the home itself under the skirting (if there is skirting) the manufactures have to place it in these three locations per HUD regulations as long as the home is a 1976 and newer.
