To find out the age and manufacturer of a manufactured or mobile home, you can try the following steps:

  1. Look for a serial number or HUD label on the exterior of the home. This should be a metal plate or decal that is affixed to the outside of the home. The serial number or HUD label will typically include the manufacturer’s name and the date the home was built.
  2. Check the title or deed for the property. This should include the date the home was purchased, which can give you an idea of how old it is.
  3. Contact the manufacturer directly. If you know the manufacturer’s name, you can try searching online for their website or calling them to ask about the age of the home.
  4. Check with the local building department. They may have records of when the home was built and who the manufacturer was.

If you are unable to find the information you need, you may want to consider hiring a professional inspector to assess the home and provide you with more detailed information about its age and manufacturer.
