I see your point, we are talking a trailer here, may even be upgraded to mobile home.
Whole different level of quality that goes into them.
I actually am living in one I bought 2 years ago, is a fixer upper and in condition and repairs done is worth it to me.
I honestly could not see pulling a permit for this job, inspectors would not want to see it.
Silly stupid going full trusses on a mobile home, to much weight, just a bad idea.
Really with more info, could be better ideas to give.
But the rules change when working on older mobile homes, fact it is a flat roof now tells the age.
Nothing wrong with this, I live in one. ... You add up the value of the home and then what a real roof cost, roof will easily exceed what the home is worth. How do you justify putting a $10k roof an a trailer worth $3k, even though it has a $10k roof on it?
I see your point, but a whole different ball game with old mobile homes.
