Rain gutter on mobile home w/no eves

How complicated will it be to self-install rain gutters on my mobile home that has no eves? Am I going to need something to seal the gutter against the side of the house or do I need a special rain gutter or ????

I need to prevent the water run-off from the roof from running right down the side of the house, causing the siding to warp.

Thanks.

Seems like it should have some kind of drip edge up there? If its flat on the wall there Id just screw the gutter on but first put a bead of that gutter caulk behind itand then on the back top edge of the guttter. Its a lot in what you have up there.

What kind of roof covering do you have? Is it just metal, or something else?

Hi
you could install your cutter just below the drip edge and go to hd and buy the rubber self adhesive tape it's about 6 inches wide in the roofing section ans simply jut install it on the roof about 4 inches and 2 inches in the gutter.
It stick real well so make sure your aligment is rigth.

cheers
