Where is the Serial or VIN number found on a manufactured (mobile) home ?

In some states, the Serial number and VIN number may be one and the same. Section 3280.6 of the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards states,

"(a) A manufactured (mobile) home serial number which will identify the manufacturer and the state in which the manufactured home is manufactured must be stamped into the foremost cross member. Letters and numbers must be 3/8-inch minimum in height. Numbers must not be stamped into hitch assembly or drawbar."

If the home is a multi-wide unit, the serial number will contain the letters A/B for a double-wide unit or A/B/C for a triple-wide unit.

(b) The serial number of a manufactured home can also be found on the Data Plate, which is mounted inside the home.
