A while back I was in the attic of a new manufactured home.

Inside the attic you can see the under side of the shingles. I was alarmed that it passed a county inspection. I would call that a major deficiency because there is nothing to support the shingles. Also I would surmise that in the future there will be sunken areas in the roof and then water penetration, I did not inspect this home, but I would like the opinion of other home inspectors.
