Sagging roof

Does anyone know where I can find a diagram for the metal support skeleton for a 1983 Vogue II 29 footer ?

What about a simple "Stud Finder", if it can find a nail in the wall in your house , it should be able to find a metal support in your RV. You can buy one at any hardware store.

Only if the roof supports are steel.

the stud finders I've owned sense a change in density not nails so they should work.

Even if it is wood, it will find the screws that hold it to the studs.

Go to the hardware and get a neodymium magnet and use that to locate the metal under the roof deck or get a studfinder as they work on density of the material in front of the face

OR wood
OR aluminum
An "electronic stud finder" will find them all.
