Fiberglass roof delaminating.

I am looking to purchase my first RV. It is a 2000 Holiday Rambler Imperial. I am currently waiting on the results of the engine fluid tests. As I was inspecting the RV, I ended up on the roof. It is fiberglass and everything looked ok, however, as I was walking around I noticed in one location that the surface (about a 5 foot area) flexed in a way that the other sections didn't. It appears that the fiberglass has separated from the subsurface. Is this a problem? I hope to install solar panels in that location.

I would be very concerned about any delamination. The severity of the problem would depend on what material the fiberglass is laminated to and what condition it is in. One might have a boat repair person look at it.
Happy trails,

If the price is right I would still consider, it should not be a feel breaker. Use it to negotiate a lower price, install your Solar brackets and correct the problem .....G
