Tire kicking (newbie here)

HI all,
I'm looking at a 1987 Winnebago Chieftain M22RC (long story short I'll be needing something to live in while I move cross country)
It has a leaky roof and I can't find ANYTHING anywhere what the composite is.

I'm hoping someone here has an older model Chieftain (454) that can give me the good the bad and the ugly on this

Not really sure what I'm looking at with anything on a motor home, so I'm hoping for the straight poop.
Thanks guys

Pretty stressful in my world at the moment lol

the roof is ether made out of fiber glass,rubber, or aluminum. just look around edges, vents, ect.....for cracked chalking . purchase some self leveling chalking and start sealing it up. if the roof is rubber wear some thing like boat shoes so you don't make any hole's in the rubber and if it has a tear you can purchase patches to get by for now. hope it help's

Thank you,
Yes I understand that it could be any of the three, but I don't know which one.
Winnebago doesn't answer their phones and their brochure is more focused on how wonderful it is to hit the open road lol

Thank you fir the welcome
