Beachcomber B-15 restoration

Hello there,
We purchased a 1977 Beachcomber B-15 with plans to restore it. We payed $700 for the trailer, which was completely original. Our plan is to gut it and rebuild it to suit our needs while being conscious of what we spend throughout the process. Any tips or suggestions from others' experiences are welcome! We will be documenting our journey for our own enjoyment, but plan to share it here for anyone who wishes to follow along. Thanks!

Demo complete

We have removed everything from the interior and did a thorough job of getting rid of all the rotted out backing etc. The usual areas were rotted out by the front and back windows.
The previous owner put a large air conditioning unit on top, which caused the roof to sag significantly. The A/C until has been removed, and the roof has been lifted back to the original position with jacks. It is currently being held with braces until we build some permanent roof-supporting trusses. We found a few minor leaks in the roof.
New wiring will be installed for the lights, and we will follow that up by spray foaming the interior for structural integrity, as well as comfort.
At this stage, we are looking for any tips on fibreglass repair, as there are numerous cracks in the roof due to the A/C unit. Also, if anyone has experience with building supports for a fallen roof, we appreciate advice on that.
