95 Vogue Leaking - Roof / Side / Windsheild Sealants

Hey guys,

My parents have a 95 Mitchel Motors Vogue Prima Vista that's showing some age. I'm going to be listing it for sale for them soon and noticed when I washed it, water was entering the top of one of the passenger windshields. Upon closer inspection, it looks like there's a few seems that needs fresh caulk and the roof likely needs some patching for sure. It is covered, so that's saved it from any actual damage (hasn't' been used in years...).

I was planning on doing this myself along with a contractor, but is this really something I should leave up to some pros? If it's pretty straight forward to tackle myself, any suggestions on the proper sealants for these older rigs?

For the sides and edges, is silicone sealant ok?

For the roof, which is fiberglass, should I be looking at some dicore self leveling type stuff (or eternabond if it makes sense)

For the Windshield, well I have no idea... it's already got some strange stuff on the rubber seal, which is very thick.

Thanks for any suggestions, hopefully this hasn't been beaten to death on the forum from a topic perspective.

If you get started you'll never find an end of things to fix. I'd sell it as is, tell the buyers about the leaks, price it accordingly. If sat it will have a fair number of problems in the chassis and house, buyers should be ready to tackle them.
