Fiberglass norm?

Hey! Got a lead on a Trillium, but am concerned about the roof. It looks like the ensolite is all eroded/torn off, ect. Is this how the roof should look? Very see through-ish? Seller says there is no structural issues. I would be driving far to check it out. I am prepared to redo all the enoslite/insulation, paint ect.

This would be my first buy, and am excited and nervous!

I think the transparency is acceptable.
The shell is quite thin and sunshine really show through.
Im pretty sure others on the forum here will agree.
I'd rather do it myself, done right or not. Isn't that what a hobby is all about?

Typically ensolite comes loose because of a leak. As far as the translucent nature of the fiberglass, that’s not unusual.

Whew. Was worried that the translucency was an issue. Definitely will be checking for water damage and leaking!
