expert advice

Hi, my name is Bo, and I am new to the site, and chat forums in general. The wife and I have a chance to purchase a 98 Camplite by Damon, fully loaded 22' pup camper fairly cheap, under a grand cheap, because the guy doesn't want to pay to have the roof fixed, and is unaware of how to do it himself. I have never done a repair like this either, so I am researching, and seeing what it entails, cost, time, etc. The side opposite of the door needs repaired/replaced. Everything else is in functioning order, supposedly. We are going to look at it this evening, and I would appreciate any, and all helpful tips on what to look for, what to avoid, and anything else i need to be aware of, before going through with this. I am great with my hands, and my wife, believe it or not, is by no means a slacker in this department, either. Funds are available, but not unlimited. Time is is even easier to come by. As an added bonus, we both enjoy getting our hands completely filthy, i.e. we replaced the transmission in her Suburban ourselves about a year ago...runs like a top! Thank you so much, in advanced!

Just a heads up.
Replace because it is going bad is OK. Replace because it leaked could turn into a nightmare.

That's certainly something to look into, they have had it covered with a tarp, and from the pictures they sent, there is no visible water damage on the interior. But we will certainly fine tooth comb it, if you will. Thank you, we appreciate it1

Hi Bo! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join us!

Sorry I can't help with your questions, but I would suggest that you will get much better results if you post questions over in the specific areas of the forum. Not many folks hang out here in the Welcome area. hope you enjoy the forum.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

I'd suggest posting your actual question in the General Discussion forum. I would think roof repairs would all follow basic procures for repair or replacement depending on type.

Nice to meet you. I'm really amped up about this project, just woke up at 3:30 and I doubt I can get back to sleep. I tore into it yesterday evening. There are pictures up in the pup section. This is more work, and fun, than I expected. Loving it, and the wife is getting excited too.
