Can the cab over part of MH fall off while driving down the road?

I have an old mobile traveler. I believe there is some rot and has had leaks at the cab over. There is a patch job on the roof at the seem. It probably isn't worth putting any money into so I was thinking about using it until I can't. Probably can't even sell it as it is an 82. I am wondering if anyone has ever had a cab over fall while driving. It definately moves alot while driving and I know they are supposed to move a little. Any thoughts? I heard it is wood frame. Does anyone know if there is at least some metal holding it up?

You might check on RV. There are some posts there concerning rebuild and water rot issues with the overhead on wood frames. One post had a full rebuild of the cab over.
I had some rot in the over head but with a metal (aluminum) frame not as big an issue.
Good luck, wish I had more information for you.
