Ideas on reinforcing 1979 Mobile home

Post by Frank533 » Sun Sep 15, 2019 7:37 pm

For the last 6 months I have been gutting out an older mobile home that I purchased along with the property.

Along the way several people have told me why not buy a new one, but I feel like buying a new one would be a waste of money that could go to a site built home. So I plan to make this mobile home as strong as I can.

I am a DIY person for most things so I intend to do as much as I can myself

I currently have the place mostly gutted, framing exposed to uncover water damage

What can I do to make the ceiling truss stronger?

Plywood glued and stapled to existing trusses on one or both sides will beef it up tremendously.
