Bounder Roof dipped, around tv antenna, How can I fix?

The sheet metal roof on top of my 1986 bounder is dipped, (sagged, bent), lower around the TV antenna, (in about a two foot Diameter spot). Water pools up and leaks in around the antenna. Is there a way, I can pop this back up and get it to stay up, and repair the roof without removing the ceiling inside?

It's called a Suction Grab Bar.

How much is it dimpled/dipped? Using Drivers great idea, grab one of these suction cups: Search results for: 'suction' to pull it up, then maybe drill a small hole and spray foam it in? Window and Door foam so it wont over 'push'....

Dunno..

That might well end up just trading a sagging roof for a sagging ceiling...

Could... thats why I suggested the Window/Door foam that doesnt push.. even better is the Latex foam... just a dab will do ya...proper resealing is essential of course ..

I'll give this a try when the weather warms, as I have one of these but the idea never crossed my pea brain! I'll access the need for foam etc. if (when) I get it pulled back up. Thanks for the input.
