Sliding doors replaced with french doors

I have adouble wide mobile home with existing slider and replacing it with french doors. Of course the size is going from 71 1/2 x 76 to 71 1/2 x 80. I've read the comments and like many MY reality is the new door is going in regardless. I don't believe that there are cripples above the header, just a header. My idea is to cut into the header a bit more than needed for the door to allow me to add a new plate under what is left of the header instead of replacing the header. Is that a sufficient fix, should I not use wood but use a steel plate under the header? This is for my mom and she does not need the added stress. Thank you
