Possible ??? But I defer to the TT Masters who may or may not approve ...
Rot is a funny thing (not) that doesn't stay in one spot but kinda' creeps all over... Personally , I'd get you and your friend to open it up , peel back the roof (carefully ) ... seek out All the rot and replace the structure as originally intended... But be warned , you might find more rot than you went looking for ... I remember old wooden boats where we went after a small spot of rot in a rib, and ended up replacing the boat ...

If you plan on keeping the TT for a while , best fix it Right !!! And if you sell it , the new owner won't be faced with a total mess...
And actually , this stuff can be a Fun project ... if you make it so ... Beer helps ...

I agree. It is better to get the rotted wood problem fixed right as soon as it is practical. If you plan to do it yourself or with a friend, it will be better if you can find a place where the trailer is under a roof so you do not have to be rushed due to weather. No matter how well you plan the repair, there will be unknown problems that show up that will delay the process.
