Info on type of Roof

Good morning everyone,
I have inherited a camper. I do not have paperwork in front of me but I believe it is a 21' 2001 Shamrock Hybrid Superlite. I have taken on the task of remodeling the camper. I have replaced all ceiling panels with MDF ( had to install some steel stud framing) and the floors with cork board flooring. Refinished all cabinets and countertops as well.
Well as I live in AZ we do not get much rain. We had a large storm pass through on Friday.
I went to do some trim work yesterday and go in and see the new ceiling sagging and its still wet. Then look at my new floors that have now been wet and are warped. Needless to say I'm not very happy.
What type of roof does this camper have and how do I repair it. Need to get completed ASAP as we have another storm approaching on Wednesday.
Any information or tips is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for the info. I have determined it is TPO. Now with that info available what is the best route to repair or re-coat the roof.

a home repair center in Ohio and surrounding states called Menards sells TPO roofing in a 10' by 100' roll.

I have never had to roof with TPO, but I did a google search using

how to reroof with TPO
and got several pages of info including many youtube videos

I would think that step number one would be to dry out the substrate and determine if the roof (wood) needs to be replaced before putting on a new membrane...
