I tried very hard to repair it on a 1988 Itasca. I just have to say "don't expect great results". I hope you can prove me wrong. Joe

I've worked on boats with delamination but in those cases there was not the waviness, just a soft deck when the fiberglas separated from the core. A good repair depends largely on the condition of the core material. If the core is rotten it's unlikely you can get a solid bond with the skin. I've fixed some cases by drilling holes in the top and bottom of panels and injecting into the top hole with WEST system epoxy. Screws drilled through the skin into a solid core will clamp the pieces together. When dry you can removethe screws and patch the screw holes. Success all depends on the condition of the core material

Agreed.. the wall needs to be solid and delamination NOT due to water penetration..
