Fist question to ask is why wasn't it fixed under warranty?
Repairing the roof as described is a tedious task....do you only fix the 1" -1/2" bubbles or do double the work and fix the 3/8" bubble as well ....then there are the 1/4" bubbles. ...What it will look like in 4-5 year and how will the patch up affect the resale at that time.
If the rood isn't right, then what else? Some RVs start out wrong and move through the factory with mistakes being make on one after the other.
Unless the price is discounted more than the cost of replacing the roof I'd move on.....there are thousands of RVs (especially mass produced like Forrest River, Keystone, Jayco) out there for sale.
RV industry is booming right now but people change RVs an average of every 3 years.......in 2-4 years the market will be flooded with used RVs.
