Roof repair

Last year I patched and painted the rubber roof on my 1994 Prowler. I'm a great fan of eternabond. Now I'm trying to figure how to fill the low spots.
The dips are about 1 inch and they hold water. Does anyone have a better idea than filling the dips with self leveling caulking and covering all with eternabond ? A new roof is not an option at this time......

Those dips may be soft wood under the rubber membrane. If the roof is solid then the self leveling patch might be the best option as the other fix requires removing the membrane and repairing whatever you find.

I know it's probably soft at low spots but I don't want to open up roof this year. Hopefully I can get one more summer from the patched roof and then major expense !

I wonder how much more damage you will have, from letting those problem areas go for another year?

What problems are the puddles causing, at the current time, are they leaking into the interior ? Sure a symptom of other proplems. Do you plan on a major reroofing ??

It will be 24 years old then so not sure spending $2500 or so doing major rebuilding will be worth the effort. The water damage is likely in the walls and floor already. You might be better served by putting that $2500 plus what you can sell this one for towards a newer camper.

This not a "good money after bad" situation as we have already spent much more on the trailer than we could ever get back. This is all the trailer we can afford and we own it. Bottom line is we have an old trailer that still needs repairs but we can still go camping ! The roof does not leak right now but did before patching. My theory is to maintain a waterproof shell until I can get the roof replaced. So any helpful suggestions will be appreciated.
