Question Unusual Sized Junction Box?

Is this an unusual sized light junction box? I bought a replacement light fixture but the mounting bracket no way fits it, its too small. This is from an old double wide manufactured home (have not figured out the year yet but its easily 20+ years old). Looks like all lights even interior have this same junction box. Any ideas?

Thanks

Welcome to the forums.

The most common sized round box is 4".
They have also used 3" and 3-1/2".
That looks like a 3-1/2" phenolic box.

Light fixtures are supposed to come with fixture brackets that would work with that box.


You could change the box too.

Thanks Pjmax. I'll try a different brand fixture and see if it has a mount that fits better.
