i would say the frame would weigh at least 2500 lbs if not more. I cut one up that was probably 30 ft long and 10 wide and it weighed over 2000 lbs
I found this in an article here;The Michigan Manufactured Housing Association is coordinating a mobile home salvaging
operation for the Association’s state member-dealers.  For a $100.00 fee a dealer can bring an
obsolete home, generally taken in trade, to “Ferrous Processing & Trading” in Detroit. Ferrous
reduces the intact mobile home into approximate 12' section, and those sections are sent through a
automobile shredder. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals are separated and collected, while the
residual shredded waste is destined for the landfill, often being used as cover material. A typical
12' x 60' mobile home will produce about eight cubic yards of waste, and one or two cubic yards
of scrap metal. The current value of the metals is $200-$400 which is compensation for waste
disposal and other program costs.

id say 1600lbs to 2400lbs, thats a single wide so you can knock it out in half a day pretty good money imo
Made an appointment to view,had phone call with client made plans. Half hour later it is on Cl in free section and she gave it away before I could go. May have been to much for me to handle anyway. Oh well life goes
on. Made 150.00 off a free ad the next day.
not trying to pick a fight here, but just looked up the last one I did. 12x40 600 lbs #1 32 lbs #2.
remember we are talking to some one who has never done one before.
any one who can knock out a 12x60 in half a day bare handed with out a back hoe, dozer or at leat an end loader is one he** of a lot better man then I am. just sayin.
if it is just a frame, NO FLOOR, then thats a whole different situation.
