I just bought a 1992 Prowler 19E for only $1,000 but the roof is in bad shape -- even rotten in the front. Frankly, I'd rather not mess around with the rubber roof anymore and I'm thinking about replacing it with aluminum. I have a buddy who's an auto body guy, and he once put such a roof on his own camper about 10 years ago. My biggest problem is the rotten wood. I want to rip off the rubber where the roof appears to be soft to see how much needs to be replaced. I then plan to replace any rotten beams with 2x3's and then patch in plywood around the vents and AC. To make the job easier, I'll take some crap off the top that I don't need like a TV antenna and range vent. Once I do that, I hope to have my auto body guy lay a sheet of aluminum over the plywood. Is this a good plan, or am I nuts? Should I try to fix the rotten wood from the inside? The interior of the camper is in great shape, and I don't want to mess it up. Should I use something different than aluminum. Vinyl maybe? Please offer advice.
