The VIN for a mobile home, also known as a manufactured home, will typically consist of a series of numbers and letters that are unique to the individual home. The VIN is usually located on a metal plate or decal that is affixed to the outside of the home, near the main electrical panel.

The exact format of the VIN can vary depending on the manufacturer and the year the home was built, but it will typically include the following information:

  • The first three digits will identify the manufacturer of the home and may include letters and numbers.
  • The next five digits will typically be a serial number that is unique to the individual home. This may include letters and numbers.
  • The next four digits will identify the model and size of the home.
  • The last digit will be a check digit, which is used to verify the accuracy of the VIN.

For example, a typical VIN for a mobile home might look like this: ABC12345678910. The first three digits would identify the manufacturer, the next five digits would be the serial number, the next four digits would identify the model and size, and the last digit would be the check digit.

If you are unable to find the VIN on the exterior of the home, you can also try looking for it on the title or deed for the property, or by contacting the manufacturer directly.
