  1. My 2017 mobile home has a vaulted drywall ceiling. Instead of taping and floating the center joint, a piece of MDF-type beveled trim was used to hide the seam. It appears the manufacturer counted on the caulk holding the trim up. It has come loose in several places, the most noticeable where the trim ends are butted together. It’s not designed so a nail, staple, brad or screw is an option. Even though I’m a widow in my 60’s I’m fairly handy, but I have yet to find a successful way to reattach the trim to the ceiling. I’ve tried several kinds of glue; none have worked. Do you have any suggestions?

  2. Is it possible to make the ceiling height taller similar to a vaulted or cathedral ceiling on a 1980 mobile home that currently has less than 8′ high ceilings?

    1. Hi Sherry,

      It’s possible but it’s not cheap or recommended. Factory-built homes have what I’ve seen called top-down structural integrity which just means the home is basically held together by the roof with weight being pushed down to the chassis. Once you start modifying roofs and perimeter walls you lose that integrity. It doesn’t mean it’s not possible but you’d be spending a lot of money to get it right.

  3. Hi,

    I am Gypsy Rose Lee’s son. She used a house trailer for touring in the late 40’s. I need some basic technical information about house trailers of that era. Can you help or refer me to someone. Thank you in advance.

  4. Hi Crystal,
    We own a 1971 single wide mobile home built by Fleetwood Enterprises. The only information I have on it is a title. I am trying to find out if it contains asbestos.
    In my search I have found that the company went bankrupt in 2009 and that the company records have been destroyed.
    The ceiling tiles are in bad shape and I would like to know if they contain asbestos before any work is done.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Ellen,

      You’d probably need to have an independent asbestos testing company to determine whether there was asbestos used. Unfortunately, getting any kind of information or help from builders, especially those that are closed now, is near impossible. Sorry, I can’t help.

  5. 1986 Parkwood Mobile Home serial # P134, I just bought this mobile home and need a little advice. I want to add a fan light to the ceiling in the living area but question the support in the ceiling. Anyone know how large the support beams are?

    1. Hi Gloria,

      There are roof trusses that span the width of the home. You can find them by looking at the seams of the ceiling panels. Typically, you will build/insert a small fan box between two trusses. You can see them here at Home Depot: Ceiling Fan Box.

      Best of luck!
