Ceiling delamination

I'm looking at. 2002 32' RexHall Aerbus.
Clean coach low miles.will need tires as they are original.
Main issue.The roof has been leaking at the fantastic vent fan.
There in some delamination that can be seen at that seam.
Is there any way to tell how far the damage had gone.
I wad thinking of taking a ice pick and poke around to see how soft it is..
Any idea on a cost of repair,has any one been there with this sort of a repair?
Thank You in advance..

Wow, those are open ended questions!
No way to know how much damage is done till it's opened up. You could ask them to remove the inside surround to the Fantastic Fan and take a look in, but even that won't tell you the whole story.
Cost of repair is totally dependent on the amount of damage and how they can go about repairing it.
I've walked away from a couple rigs that were very nice otherwise just due to a rook leak. One I looked then called them and said I wanted to come back and look closer at the tear in the roofing. They bought some repair stuff and covered the area before I got their. Took one look and left. Just didn't want to play that game!

Look from the top and feel for any sponginess in the substrate for a space of a couple feet around the vent. If it's firm up there, it's probably not bad inside. Next step is to yank the interior vent surround down so you can see a bit of the underside. Might have some damage to the insulation underneath, but that's usually not to severe.
