Usually between 10 and 12 feet wide compared to the legal trailering width of 8 feet allowed for autos and pick up trucks . It was longer. Usually longer than 40 feet.It came in multiple sections commonly referred to as a "SINGLEWIDE", "DOUBLEWIDE", "TRIPLEWIDE" or other. It was generally constructed with thin walled framing much like its little brother the "TRAVEL TRAILER". Typically 2x3 inch exterior walls and in many cases 2x2 inch interior walls.   It was clad on the exterior with aluminum siding.

The North County Wine Company in San Marcos is a Winner We stumbled upon the North County Wine Company out in San Marcos several years ago, and it’s been a winner on our list of places to buy wine since.  While BevMo is very popular here, with a vast collection of wines (and who can resist their frequent 5 cent wine sales) and close to our home, a visit to the North County Wine Company always brings us new vintages to check out, and hard to find wines we’ve not seen elsewhere, at a good value.  While we have favorite reds and whites, owners Jim and Bill Tobin always can recommend their top picks in various price ranges, and so far they have never steered us wrong. The North County Wine Company offers regular wine tastings, Thursday Happy Hour, Sunday specials, a 1-cent wine sale, and va...
