Want a gable roof on mobile home
Down here the common practice is to run three lengths of 2X4 lengthwise down the trailer, er MH. on top of thes are laid 2X2 'rafters' 24"O.C. Corrugated ton is used as the roofing. Hardware cloth is used between the 'rafters' to keep out unwanted nesters. Some of these roofs are twenty y.o. and more, and have shown no problems with wall buckling, etc. Of course it's only snowed once here in the last 40 years,that was only 1/4' or so. Not a true gable I understand, but quite effective. If I were going for a true gabled roof, I'd go to ground with posts of some sort.
One of these hammers will fix it.

Reason: Overlooked the 'Gable' part
