What is a Single Wide?

A single wide is what used to be known as a "mobile home" but is now more appropriately called a "manufactured home". These structures are pre-built in a factory and then transported to your site. Prior to 1976, these homes were built using no particular building code. Now, manufactured homes are built to the national Housing and Urban Development (HUD) code.

A single wide mobile home is the smallest mobile home of all two types. Most single wide mobile homes have a length of 90 feet (27m) or less, and a width of 18 feet (5.5 m) or less. Single wide mobile homes are typically towed to their specific sites as single units, since it is made up of one structure. This makes them especially easy and affordable when it comes to moving them. Give us a call today at 1-877-50-HOMES and we at Home Nation will help cover all your questions about both new and used single wide mobile homes.

Should I Buy a Single Wide or a Double Wide?

The primary difference between a single wide and a double wide is the size. As their name suggests, single wides consist of a single unit that is built inside a factory and then delivered to your site. Double wides, on the other hand, are made up of two units that are pre-built, delivered, and then joined together once on site.

Thus, the decision to buy a single wide or double wide is entirely up to you. If you’re working with a smaller budget or don’t need as much space, a new or used single wide could be the best choice for you. Keep in mind, too, that single wides come single wides come in a variety of sizes and floorplans, so you can choose the options that best fit your needs.

Reasons to Choose a Mobile Home vs. Stick-Built

It’s no secret that buying a house can be downright expensive, and many first-time homeowners just aren’t sure where to start looking for an affordable option. If this sounds like your situation, choosing a manufactured home instead of a conventionally “stick-built” home could be the perfect solution. Just some of the top reasons to buy a mobile home include:

  • Affordability - For a fraction of what you might pay for a stick-built home, you can get a high-quality, well-constructed single wide or other type of manufactured home. At Home Nation, we NEVER skimp on quality, yet are able to provide single wides at an affordable price.
  • Reduced property taxes - Another perk of buying a single wide is that you won’t have to worry so much about paying property taxes, which can be a major expense in itself.
  • Enjoy the perks of home ownership without the hassles - Mobile homes let you enjoy the benefits of owning your own home without the added hassles that come along with traditional homes. Mobile homes involve much less maintenance, yet you still have your own space that you can paint, decorate, and live in however YOU want.

Case Study: Testimonial from Fort Wayne Customer

Unlike many other single wide dealers out there, Home Nation is transparent about pricing and never sneaks in hidden fees for so-called “upgrades.” You can see an estimate of the FINAL cost of your single wide as soon as you select your base model, options, and shipping location on our website.

One customer, Chris from Fort Wayne, Indiana, was so happy with his savings at Home Nation, he felt compelled to send us this testimonial:

“We had a Roosevelt built and delivered to Lake Gage three weeks ago. After shopping another dealer, I was talked into calling Scott and talking to him about a home. Smartest call I made during the entire process! After racking up over $4,100 in ‘upgrades’ with the competitor, we only had $600 with Home Nation because of the quality of their homes! These homes are built so much better—from the energy-efficient vinyl windows to the 2 x 6 walls and all the insulation. Thanks again for the great home. My family and I look forward to enjoying it for years to come!”
