Roof damage?

I was up on my roof and I noticed that part of my roof about a one foot by two foot section looks like it has bubbled up to be an inch or so higher than the rest of the roof. Would that be occurring due to water damage? I have a 2005 rock wood ultra lite trailer which I believe has a roof made out of mostly styrofoam. I am attaching pictures but it is hard to see the part of the roof that is sticking up. Any help would be much appreciated.

My guess is yes. Water has caused the decking underneath to swell.Give it a good look and see if you can find a place that is not sealed well or that you can see a screw head in the front seam or a vent.

Been there done that. I had an 08 Sig Ultra Lite 5 wheel. The roof on these are 1/4 lauan plywood that sandwiches styrofoam.The aluminum framing is on your side, least you won't have frame rot. That may be the only good news you will have on this though.

You have rot under that roof, but you can fix it if you want and can. Just keep in mind that the damage you see is much less than the damage not seen. When I repaired mine the rot I thought I had was much worse when I got it open. I replaced 8 foot from my front ca that looked like a 1X1 foot soft spot.

I fixed the roof and completely stopped the leak for about a $300 DIY repair, then the sidewall delamn started. Even though I fixed it correctly the damage was done. It was a Red Green fix with substitution of Etrnabond tape over duct tape. It did work and held for 5 years but those 5 years was nothing but a I hate this camper time and the best day of that camper's life was when I signed the title over to the dealer. And yes I was 100% upfront with them and showed them my fix.

If I can find my pics of my repair I will share them.

I'm pulling for you, we're all in this together.
