What do you think about this roof?

Picture below. Iím looking at a Ď97 Layton by Skyline. One owner and kept under a shed. Guy let me bring it home so I could hook up everything and check it out. Itís been unused for about 12 years. The water heater is toast, rusted out, but other than that camper is in good shape. Havenít checked water yet because of water heater. I climbed up and looked at the roof. It looks like the thin white part is peeling off but the roof looks good otherwise. Needs new caulk. Iím attaching a picture to get some input on the roof. Click image for larger version

Looks like the rubber is rotten and falling apart. I don't know of any way to fix it beside replacing the roof?

Replacing is the best option but it may not be worth it.

I had an old class A with a bad roof and used a EDPM roof coating which seemed to work well. I applied 2 coats. I only ad the camper about 2 years after this but it still looked good when I got rid of it.

Thanks for the replies. I’m going to try the roof coating, eternabond, and lap sealant. I’m torn about a new roof but the camper is in excellent shape otherwise.
