Anyone ever seen a home where these two labels are not consecutively numbered, and if so, do you know what it means? The numbers are not even close. And sadly, the Data Plate had been removed from the home as well, so can't even be certain whether they SHOULD be consecutive or not...

They don't have to be consecutive, but they should at least have the same zip code. The lender will probably have to get a copy of the data plate. Not your job.

Have you ever seen them non-consecutive? One is NTA117abcd, the other NTA114wxyz, so off by quite a bit. Can't imagine they were part of the same manufacturing run, or even production year. Almost wonder if somehow they came from different assembly plants...

I've only done about 100 Mfg homes, so maybe still a rookie with these, but never once seen them non-consecutive, so it just threw me I guess...subject home is a 2002 Oakwood.

Yes, I have seen non consecutive (been at it 34 years so not wet behind the ears). And I got just as concerned as you. In one case that stands out, 1/2 of a complete home in storage on a sales lot got damaged beyond repair and the factory made them a new one. Couple of years intervened so big difference in #'s. Same model, same plan, same finish, just mfg'd on different dates.

Perhaps a custom order.

I have done one with non consecutive numbers. Documentation provided by owner that one half was damaged in transit to site. Confirmed with dealer. But I also had the data plate, which was corrected as well.

Same here. Run into it twice and the data plate matched both times. Contacted the installer the first time but never found out the reason why. Both had a single manufacture date (assuming it was based on only one of the sections because the numbers were also pretty far apart). Just disclosed everything and lender had no issues.

I worked at a manufactured housing plant between high school and college. Most doublewides have a "wet half and a dry half", where all the plumbing is in the front or rear but not always (you will notice from now on). I remember the "dry half" of one unit that the plastic cover over the open side was poorly applied and the wrong lag bolt pattern that held the wood floor joists to the steel frame was used. It was a windy day (20 mph+) and the trailer made it less than a 1/2 mile up the road before the wood structure was separated from the steel frame. Close enough that they drove a couple of fork lifts up the highway and put it back on the steel frame and strapped it down and brought it back in a pile on wheels. I'm pretty sure the HUD numbers on the final product didn't match. The running joke was that you didn't want a house started or finished on a Monday or Friday. 50% plus of the workers were high and or drunk on those days. There was one factory inspector covering a plant that was several acres in size and typically 20+ "halves" in production at any time. A running joke among the stoners...

^ I remember that. One section was referred to as the "Heavy" section.
