Siding or windows

I am planning on replacing my windows and putting on new siding. I live in a mobile home and am wondering, since I will have to do this over 2 seasons, which should I do first?

What type of siding is currently on your MH? Does the roof have an overhang?

I'm a painter, not a siding guy but I'd think you would need to complete a side at a time, not windows 1 yr and siding the next. If your current windows are the MH norm, there might be a bit more work involved with replacing them with typical double pane windows although IMO - it's worth the effort.

I'm with Mark - typically both at the same time

Windows first then the siding.
In order of what home improvements should be done first on a home.
1) Roof
2) Windows + Doors
3) Siding
Siding is mainly cosmetic and can wait till your house is properly sealed with windows and doors and roof.

My siding is chip board kind of a panelling shape to it. My roof has no overhang on it. When I put up my eaves trough I had to use drip edge to extend enough to get the water to flow into the gutters. Without, the water just runs down the outside walls.
