1997 coleman cheyene Roof damage

I have a 1997 Coleman cheyene in very good condition except for the roof. The roof has sagged and I believe water has seeped between the metal roof and the white rubberized coating (not sure what material it is). How can I fix it, we're pretty handy and would like to do it ourselves, if possible. The roof has lots of cracks which we have covered with some tar looking tape and it has held up pretty well but I was wondering if we could just replace it altogether.

I hope you've found a way to repair your roof by now. The only really good way is to replace the roof assembly. Most of those ABS tops did or will do what yours has done. You can patch the roof with some white Parrbond in the cracks, and try to find a newer top to install on your trailer. FTCA has told me they are no longer making those tops. You may be able to adapt a newer one, just make sure the lift supports and main door are in the same spots.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but three rights make a left.
