Metal Roof Transition between 2 Slopes. #green

I have an addition with a roof that transitions on two sides from 30 degrees to 16 degrees. The 30 degree roof is about 8' long on both sides and the 16 degree porch roofs that connect on each side are approx. 9'. I can find gambrel break trim from suppliers but they are all only 10' long and I need 14'. This doesn't seem like a good place to be overlapping the breaks or am I wrong? I could overlap the roofing material but that would only give me a couple inches and I'm not comfortable with that...any ideas? Thanks much!!!
