mobile home deck roof attaching


I recently built a deck off the front of my mobile home, its 16 x 9 and i want to put a roof over it. I am planning a 18 x 10 frame with 2 x 6 and plywood. plus shingles. My main concern is, attaching it to the mobile home, how is the best way to do that? and are screws good enough to secure the 2 x 6's? thanks.

I'd check with the homes manufacturer before I attached a structure to it, especially a roof.
How much snow do you get there?
If the manufacturer nixes the roof attachment, you can always make it free standing with the proper supports and bracing.

I did a couple some years ago and decided to go with free standing and put a floating flashing attached to the trailer under the manufacturers top trim

hi,find out your rafter pattern on the mobil home and pre drill your holes for the lag screws(1/2"x?) so the 2x6 or 2x8 will fasten easer and tighter to your roof.make sure your lags are long enough to secure it properly(don't forget the washers)you can do it'''
