    Recently acquired a 1998 Palomino pop up travel trailer. Roof is sagging and some screws at ends of support rails are pulling loose.
    Need to know what's involved in repairing the roof or reinforcing the support bars.

    Welcome
    There are quite few threads here, for various brands and types of repairs:

    Someone will likely ask if there is water damage, if the roof is now dry, any previous attempts at repair, etc?

    Congratulations and Welcome to the Portal. Much info to be had. Just type in to the Quick Forum Search on the left. Sagging roof sounds like LEAK!

    From your description it sounds like it's likely that the side boards are rotten where the screws are pulling out. This is a fairly major repair job but it's doable. You may have damaged in the roof itself, look for signs of water intrusion such as stains on the ceiling for water in the light fixture. Do a search here for roof rebuild as others have suggested and you'll find lots of help. You can also find some videos on YouTube that may be helpful.
