YES Communities 01/08/2019

You may or may not be familiar with the industry terms of singlewide and doublewide. Both of which refer to types of mobile homes. What is the difference though of a singlewide vs a doublewide? Size is the main difference, but transport and assembly are also factors that distinguish single and doublewide homes.

Singlewide homes range from as small as 600 square feet up to 1,330 square feet.  The width of a singlewide is 18 feet or less and the length is 90 feet or less; the most common measurements for singlewide homes is 72 feet wide by roughly 15 feet wide totaling 1,080 square feet. Singlewide homes are shipped as one unit on one semi-trailer.

Doublewide homes start at around 1,067 square feet and go up to 2,300 square feet.  Doublewide homes have a width of 20 feet or more and their length is 90 feet or less. They most often measure 56 feet long by 26 feet wide with a square footage of 1,456. Doublewide homes are shipped as two separate units that are later joined together seamlessly to make a completed doublewide home.

Generally speaking, singlewide homes are longer and more narrow and doublewide homes are shorter and wider, looking more like a site built home. Singlewide and doublewide homes both make great, affordable homes, it all just depends on the size of your family and the specific needs you have in a home. Find your home in one of our YES!
