You leave out very important details. Have you been paying rent? Are you there with the consent of the land owner? What is the relationship between you and the land owner? Is it a mobile home? You'll need far more details to get more of a response (other than "probably not").

You posted the question twice here and in the other version said the land was your mothers, which means your possession was never adverse. So the answer is no.
