Sight Level

I am building a base pad for a mobile home. How many loads of dirt do I need to make the sight level?

The house is 28' wide and 76' feet long, and I have a 5' drop on the location from front to back where the home will be placed.

To start with 28' * 76' * 5' = 10,640 cubic feet, but since it is a slope you are only filling half of that, 5,320 cubic feet, cubic yards are often used for measuring fill, so we divide by 27, getting 197 cubic yards. A fairly common size of dump truck is somewhere around 10 yards, so maybe 20 loads, or if truck + trailer maybe 10 loads. Note that I didn't calculate for sloping the fill at the sides and back of the area being filled, so the actual volume will be more, but you get some idea. Also if you are going to put a building on fill it should be compacted, not a trivial project with a 5' depth of fill.
