1995 Sea Breeze roof leak

I have recently acquired a 95 Sea Breeze from a good friend. 65,000 mi. Banks PowerPack, very well kept, couple years ago a leak was found at the cab seam. A year ago it was deemed fixed. I found water today under the passenger seat and upper window wall. From previous leaking the passenger floor, lower wall need rebuilt to be right, as all of the structural integrity is gone from the floor and the wall is almost as bad.
On the roof I found a section 2ft wide from the sidewall and 8ft long all along the passenger side all soft. The cab seam is loaded with about 5 layers of maybe Liquid Roof or Doctor, some layers adhered, some not. I found an obvious breach in the sealant that I could stick my finger in. Here's the leak!
From inside I can feel through the ceiling vent holes that the joists are still very solid, no rot at all. I bought some Eternabond tape today to do a fix, but here's my question. What is the roof sheathed in, what can I rebuild the passenger wall with., do I frame the wall? Is it a sandwich construction?
Finally, what is the roof(factory) material, EPDM? Thanks in advance

Roof is made of EPDM, found that out. The walls are plywood, Styrofoam, and I have no idea what else. Anyone?

No special hand shake. I'm not a national owner, but it was built like most every other brand. wood studs, plywood, vinyl. It will most likely be a real can of worms when you open it up.
