A manufactured home is constructed almost entirely in a factory. The home is placed on a steel chassis and transported to the building site. The wheels can be removed but the chassis stays in place.
A manufactured home can come in many different sizes and shapes. The two major forms of manufactured homes are single-wides and sectionals. Single-wides are sixteen feet or less in width and can be towed to their site as a single unit. Sectionals are typically twenty feet or more in width, and are towed to their site in separate units, which are then joined together. Although not as common as the latter, a manufactured home can also be produced as a Triple-wide.
