Does this look like the culprit to the leak in my roof?

I recently bought a 13ft. Burro camper trailer- it's leaking pretty badly (we are talking puddles of water) from the roof. Does this dark spot look like the culprit? Soft spot, Seam issue?- If so what is the easiest way I can fix this?




Bonus photos of some pooled water and the strange ceiling situation.



Thank you!

I’m not seeing the photos. See post #7 in the “Forums 101” thread in the “News and Announcements” section for how to attach photos to your post.

The burro roofs rarely leak unless there is a fan or vent ,do you physically see the leak or see water dripping ,the burros were notorious for leaking windows ,could it be them .

Why not use a lawn sprinkler to simulate a rain storm and sit inside and search for the source of the leaks? Maybe use a portable work lamp to check into dark corners.
