roof sag on a 17 foot Bigfoot

Our 17 foot Bigfoot has some roof sag.Probably from snow left on it. Any thoughts on fixing this issue.

Got a small sag in my 13' Scamp. Not sure if I should try to do something about it? Or just leave it. I don't think it'll cause any pooling, but I don't like it.

I think that all early 17' Bigfoot trailers have the same problem even if they never saw snow. It's due to poor design that was fixed in later years. Mine is the same way and I've chosen to ignore it for now. The fix would involve stripping the ceiling and upper walls and inserting bracing under the figerglass that would re-arc the roof. Then rebuilding the interior and hope that the lower walls would hold the extra pressure. Mine doesn't leak and few people will see the rooftop of the 7' high trailer. So I live with it.
