I had no idea that single wides in Canada could be 20′ wide. I also had no idea that Canadian mobile homes had some really awesome layouts and features you don’t see much in the US manufactured home market.
These two single wides are prime examples of average Canadian mobile homes. Oh, and they are beautifully decorated, too.
Wait, Did I Just Say Canadian Mobile Homes?
Notice how I’m calling this a ‘mobile home’ and not a ‘manufactured home?’ While many Canadian and US home builders are owned by the same parent company, and our friendly neighbors to the North updated their factory-built housing codes right along with us, Canadian companies didn’t create some silly campaign trying to stop a common word from being used.
Oh, Canada didn’t have builders paying off, I mean hiring, US Congressmen in the late 1970s to sponsor federal bills requiring all government funded literature and speeches to only use the term ‘manufactured home.’ The term ‘mobile home’ was prohibited. Canadian builders focused on building better homes and giving home buyers betters customer service and longer warranties instead of worrying about words.
Canadian Mobile Homes Have Great Layouts
This 2007 single wide home has 1,518 square foot of living space and features vaulted ceilings, a steep pitched roof, and 2×6′ exterior walls. And because the mobile home is 20 feet wide there are a few more layout possibilities available.
The entryway, shown above, separates the smaller bedrooms from the main living space:
A beautiful cozy and warm open floor plan.It also includes laminate flooring and non-ceramic tile. There are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. At $157,900 you could be living in absolute style. You can check out the entire listing here,
The kitchen area is something out of a magazine. With the dark cabinets and gorgeous backsplash who wouldn’t want to enjoy an evening meal there?
The kitchen includes a built-in dishwasher, microwave as well as the refrigerator and stove.
Don’t you just love the colors?
Living In Style
The rest of the home is just a spectacular! The living room features the same dark color scheme as the kitchen area.
Warm and cozy is definitely the theme of this Canadian mobile home.
We love the rustic look of the entrance way as well. The colors match the rest of the home perfectly. The coat rack and shoe bench are the perfect addition to the entrance.
The master bedroom and bath compliment each other perfectly. The soft colors on the walls and the backsplash in the bathroom are a perfect match. We could definitely make ourselves at home there!
Canadian Mobile Home Sweet Home #2
I found so many gorgeous Canadian mobile homes on a couple of real estate sales sites that I think I can make a monthly Canadian Mobile Home feature. Our friendly neighbors to the north may be able to teach us a thing or two about awesome mobile home decor and design!
This 2014 single wide has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and a total of 1,520 square feet of living space. The asking price is $175,000. You can see more here.
This second home also has a modern decor. The entryway is especially cool, too:
If you take a right from the front door you come upon a hallway that includes the doorway to the smaller second bedroom and bathroom:
If you take a left from the front door you go into the living room, dining room, and kitchen:
Keep walking and around the corner, you stumble upon this:
This is open floor plan design at its best. There are two main features in this space: the awesome fireplace and the amazing kitchen. I’d be happy with just one of those!
Huge kitchen island with gorgeous countertops and cabinetry? Yes, please!
The master bedroom and bathroom are equally impressive:

We Would Love to Hear from Canadian Mobile Homeowners!
I would love for our Canadian readers (I know you are out there) to give us even more details about their factory-built homes. A few questions I have:
- Do you have a hard time finding financing and insurance, too?
- Do you have to deal with the stereotype?
- Anything we should know about Canadian mobile homes but we just don’t know to ask?
We love to hear from our readers so just comment below!
