What Are The Biggest Mobile Homes Out There?
Manufactured homes on the market today offer the same size benefits as site-built homes at a fraction of the cost. Contrary to popular belief, they come with all of the same features you’d find in a site-built home such as kitchens with the latest appliances, multiple bedrooms, and ample storage space.
In fact, some mobile homes are so large that they almost have to be seen to be believed. But, you might be wondering – what are the BIGGEST mobile homes you can find? Do five-bedroom mobile homes exist?
The answer might just surprise you – but first, there are some basics to go over about how mobile homes work before we get into sizing.
Mobile Home Sizing Basics
Generally, you’ll still find that mobile homes are sized the same way as a site-built home, using square footage. However, there’s another consideration to keep in mind when it comes to manufactured homes.
Most often, you’ll hear a manufactured home referred to by the number of sections that it has. For example, a mobile home that’s just one section is called a single-section mobile home. You may also see it referred to as a single-wide mobile home.
Manufactured homes with more than one section are often called multi-section homes.
If a mobile home has two sections, it becomes a double-wide mobile home. A home with three sections, a triple-wide. And so on.
You’ll also see mobile homes referred to by their dimensions. For example, you’ll sometimes see a mobile home online described as a 16’x70’.
Here’s something that’s really important to keep in mind: not every home that has the same number of sections will be the same size. In fact, it’s common to find homes that vary quite a bit in their square footage, but have the same number of sections.
A single-wide mobile home is most commonly between 900 and 1,440 square feet, but can be bigger or smaller. Meanwhile, a triple-section mobile home can be as large as 3,600 square feet.
So, this begs the question…
How Big Can A Mobile Home Get?
Typically, you’d be hard pressed to find a mobile home with more than four sections. Those are called quadruple-wide manufactured homes, or quadruple-sections.
However, mobile homes at that stage are quite massive. Like we mentioned earlier, a triple-wide mobile home can measure as large as 3,600 square feet. If a mobile home has four sections, chances are it can be much bigger than that.
Here’s another key thing to remember when it comes to manufactured homes: the number of sections will not equal the number of bedrooms in that home in most cases.
Do Mobile Homes With Five Bedrooms Exist?
Yes, it’s possible to find a mobile home with five bedrooms.
While they’re not as common, some multi-section manufactured homes can have as many as five bedrooms or more.
This is perfect for those with large families, or those who need a spare room that can be used for different purposes. Or, you can even mix and match if you wanna use four bedrooms for your family, and one as a flex room.
There are loads of other uses you can come up with for your spare bedrooms in a five-bedroom mobile home. These include:
- Home office
- Home gym
- Children’s playroom
- Remote schooling/Zoom studio
- Craft room
- Dressing room
- Reading room
- Home theaters or entertainment room
What About Mobile Homes With Five Sections?
Unlike a mobile home with five or bedrooms, it’s going to be much more difficult, if not impossible, to find a mobile home with five sections.
There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, a mobile home that has five sections would be too cost-prohibitive for many to reasonably purchase. This leads into the fact that most manufacturers don’t make homes with more than three or four sections at most.
Also, there’s the issue of size. For many plots of land, and definitely for nearly every community, it’s a challenge to find a plot of land large enough to hold a manufactured home that has five or more sections. However, this may be possible in rural areas where land is more abundant.
