1990 Encounter by Georgie Boy

I paid 1K for this thing, even after giving it a good look-see!! Original motor has 38,000 on it, BUT, major water damage. Roof leaked, causing floor leaks etc etc. Dad was a builder, so I know the whole demo and rebuild process, but I have no clue as to what is connecting the walls together with the roof, roof is sagged, and floor, but how do the walls stand??? I see a lot of styro, but where are the roof joists?? LOL I am not the best web surfer but I get around, and have not dug up the info I need. Any help would be appreciated. Louisville KY. Tim (502) 608-8321 Thanks

'87 Encounter

If your Encounter was like mine, then your rafters are 2x2's which rest on 2x2 studs. If you start right at the roof seam right above the drivers seat [where the outside sloped front roof meets the flat roof], you will find a rafter. Next one is 2' then 2'. They hold up 4x8 sheets of plywood [roof structure]. That seam above the drivers seat is where mine leaked. I repaired it twice in the 4 yrs I had mine, and never could get it right without doing extensive repair to the roof. Cheaper to get another MH. [did].
