Stucco on Mobile Home

I'm wondering if you would be able to Stucco the outside of a mobile home. I understand you would have to have larger overhangs on the roof, but how would you go about stuccoing? Thanks!!

Welcome to the forums!

It wouldn't be a good idea! Stucco doesn't flex without cracking. A MH rarely has a great footer system and even if it does, the frame rails are supported by the footer/piers and the MH exterior walls hang over the frame rails and have no direct support under them.

The only way I would attempt to stucco a MH would be if it had a masonary foundation around the perimeter that helped to support the exterior walls and a roof over.
