Gary, welcome to iRV2.com. You have come to the right place for good RV info. Fix the roof from leaking first and then address the inside ceiling. Good luck and keep us posted as to how it goes.

Welcome Fleamarketer to irv2.
Your roof is where to start as someone has said and check the whole seam areas for your roof because water travels some distance thru a leak.
I will short cut your question to the Vintage Forum give it a check alot of nice jobs posted with better looking RV's from the original build by MFG's.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

Hi Gary,

Welcome to iRV2. You will find many resources here, and you just might make a friend or two as well.

If interested, why not pop in to the iRV2 Chatters chat room. We are there just about every evening starting around 8:30pm eastern. It is a fun group and many of us have met several times in various places around the country.
