Default outside lights

I am wanting to put a outside light on the side of the house. Thinking of getting a street light dusk to dawn light. Am thinking about putting it on the side of a manufactered house(2003).Will the siding/wood hold the light and brace?

What kind of siding do you have and how heavy is the light?

As long as its under 50lb (shouldnt be) you shouldn't have any trouble fastening it to the fascia. You want a street light to be high so fascia should be best spot. Hopefully you have a fascia on your gable end.. attaching it to vinyl siding is kind of a project.
