I would create a in place roof. Go to Modelling<Create<Roof give it a name then chose Solid extrusion<Solid Blend. Go to one of your elevations (short side) then draw your front & back. It will show as edit top & edit bottom. When you have finished sketch, go to site plan & you can adjust the length of the roof.

Create a Mass, using a Solid Blend.  You will switch the workplane to the surface of one of the end walls.  The bottom profile will be the shape of the wall.  The top profile will be the shape of the opposite wall. 

Then place roof using Roof by Face. It's very simple to do.  You can even use dimensions on the sketch of the profiles to set the elevations of the 4 points on the corners.

There are no NURBS in Revit.  Use a Mass, make it a solid blend with different profiles on each end, and Revit will connect the ponts for you.  Then use Roof by Face on the Mass.

NO NURBS?

Check the HELP and you will find that you can import NURBS and convert it to roofs

But it always fails

Correct.  There are no NURBS natively in Revit.  You can import NURBS based objects from other programs, and it doesnt always fail.  Here is a roof created from a Rhino file, saved as an SAT, and then imported into a Revit mass Family.  The family was loaded into Revit, and then Roof by Face was used.
