replacing sleeper board in '98 minnie winnie, help

After getting into leak in the cab over, the further I go the worse it gets.
Apparently the previous owner discovered the probs and covered it up.
Dry rot in the sleeperboard! Called parts and the replacement board is $591.15!!! IS THERE MORE TO IT THAN MEETS THE EYE? Do not have it out yet, but it appears that it's a flat piece of plywood, cut to shape with some grooves routed in it for trim pieces. Am I missing something here?

Not a reason in the world that you can't get some ply wood and use a router to make your own piece.

I agree with TXiceman. I'm in the process of rebuilding my bunk over the cab. While you have it torn up, you may want to sister the framing with some angle iron to give it a little better support than the 1" x 1" (wood) square stock they used for the frame, if that's what they used in yours. Then top it off with some 5/8 plywood.
