1994 Innsbruck M-30FKD Roof Problems

We recently received this trailer as a "gift". I noticed that there were significant dents at the front of the roof, and that the sealant along the side was cracked and peeling but there was no sign of leaking anywhere in the trailer.

But sure enough, during the first heavy rain, there were massive leaks inside the cabinets at the front of the trailer. Can anyone point me to a source that will detail the roof structure and side sealing and trim details?

(I queried Gulfstream...they said they had no drawings but the joists were 16" oc and the decking was 1/8" thick plywood.)

I would like to eliminate the leaks by doing the work myself but I would surely like to get some idea of what I will be getting into. I suspect the rood is dented because of rotted plywood. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

There is no way of knowing how much damage there is or what it will take to fix until you tear into it. I don't see anything in your profile as to where you live, but if you are in a cold climate, I would cover the unit or store it inside if possible until spring. If you can work on it this winter, then you'll need to peel back some of the roofing and see just how much of the plywood is bad and check the rafters for damage. Anything that is severely damaged will need to be replaced and then the entire roof should be redone. Damage could extend into the walls - good luck!
