Repair sinking roof

Hey all I'm new to this fiberglass rv ownership and I purchased this Roamer with a roof sunked roof up to 1.5 inches.

Should I be concerned about getting this fixed?

Yep, it's a significant problem, especially if there is a belly that traps/causes standing water. My gut reaction is that the AC unit is too heavy and that the interior roof/ceiling needs to be stripped back, lifted back to an upward bow, re-ribbed and re fiberglassed. Then reupholstered.

Find someone with a similar model who may make templates for the missing supports. Then gradually lift the roof to the proper position and install supports.
