Mobile Home Roof

Your home is bouncy because it has 2 x 2 rafters instead of 2 x 4 rafters. As long as it is not leaking, your are fine. Keep Dry.

Bare minimum structural frame.
Your foot-falls (150lbs.+ per sq.ft.) more than likely exceed the live load/dead load capacity of the roof structure. No worry, thats just how they build them.

Shingle life could be from 10 to 30 yrs...Many factors to consider.
I would quess that you have the lowest grade of 3-tab asphalt shingles available, so I will go with a 12 to 15 range.
