Full Answer

A standard trailer, more accurately referred to as a mobile home, is a structure designed to be a permanent residence. It is no more than 18 feet wide and is built on a wheeled chassis for ease of transportation. A double-wide mobile home can be 36 feet wide once the parts are joined after transportation.
