    So, my wife bought a 93 Coleman Destiny Roanoke before I had a chance to see it. It is in very good condition except that it has a pretty serious amount of roof rot. I'm hoping to find out here how to fix it. I've found a bunch of threads already, but couldn't see some of the pics without joining, so here I am.

    I'm pretty stressed out about the repair job. I think I can do it, but I'm pretty sure it will be a huge PITA.

    Thanks much in advance for any and all help you can give.

    Welcome and greetings from North Carolina to the exciting world of Pop-Up camping!

    You should find plenty of roof repair posts here on the portal.

    Good luck with the repair!

    I was going to ask about your username. Guess I don't have to. :laugh:

    Welcome, and you'll find plenty of folks here who have rebuilt their roofs. I'm sure you'll have lots of advice and support. Create a new thread for it and post pics along the way.

    The reason I started using PictishWolf is that I've always liked wolves and while I was stationed in Scotland while in the US Navy, I saw a Pictish rock carving of a wolf. My brother (artist) used creative license to recreate the carving in a more recognizable shape for my tattoo. Before that, I was Wolfpaw and used a wolf footprint, but that was actually becoming very common, so I wanted something more unique.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    I was wondering, are there a lot of purists on these boards who only support restorations and are offended by major modifications? I hope not. Our plans are pretty radical, I think.

    Welcome aboard from N/W Fl Panhandle. Do not worry too much, there are a lot of people that have rebuilt the roof on a PUP and they will be glad to assist with any questions you might have.
    also you will probably want to get into mods (everyone does) to "make it your own". Just relax, and remember "Happy Wife, Happy life" I am sure she thought it was (and may be) a great deal. Good luck with the repairs and Happy Camping

    BTW thanks for your service, You must have been at the sub base in Holy-lock. I have visited there a few times, and I did 22 1/2 in the Navy myself.

    Unfortunately, Holy Loch closed a few years before I got there. I was at RAF Edzell from 95-97. I can't imagine a better place to have been stationed, personally. I really loved it there. I toured so many castles ( >100!). Thanks for your service as well.

    Congratulations on the NTU Pup and Welcome to the forum from Midway USA.

    LOL. We've got a few sticks in the mud but most members here live for making mods to their Pups. Just remember...pictures or it didn't happen. [:)C]
