Model or serial number?

bestalikatMarch 23, 2008

Where does one find the model or serial number on mobile homes?

I looked all around the exterior, and my home inspector looked underneath - to no avail. I'm wondering if a previous owner removed / repainted over the information.

There was one tiny oval that looked like a plaque of some kind, but the home inspector said it was too small to be the model/serial number information.

Any ideas where else to look?

And, if it /is/ that painted-over plaque area, any ideas how to expose it without ruining the exterior paint job?

In our modular homes, we put a data plate in the kitchen sink cabinet. Other locatations you might check are inside closets or by the electrical panel. But try looking in kitchen cabinets first.

Thanks Wayne! I'll look there next time I'm at the site. I'd never have thought to look there.

It may be on the top of tongue, if permanently attached. Or on the front plate of the frame below the siding material.

just bought a mobile home made by Derose invader to move it we need a permit. I can't find the serial # anywhere. We took off the skirting the only thing there was on the frame there were 3 numbers someone had scratched on the frame its 933. This mobile home was built for a business late 80's it has 2 offices and a small restroom any ideas where I can find it?
