Going to have to open it up to find out.
All the mobil homes I've worked and lived in just used a very thin layer of fiberglass.

Thanks so much for your reply! I met a guy at Lowe's who works on mobile homes and he did not think asbestos whould be a concern and your response makes me feel allot better. I read other threads on removal of asbestos and will take precautions.

Thank you all for your reply. Yea I had to laugh to myself when I entered the date on the trailer, actually it's still in excellent condition with previous owners keeping it in tip-top shape. I had an electrician check on the wiring but now I will get to take a peek on what interior walls look like.
