is this fiberglass laminated over plywood?
If it is, it's easy (by boating standards) to be fixed.
If you found and solved the leaking problem, just grind the fiberglass off, cut the rotten plywood off, put new plywood in and use epoxy resin to laminate over it again.
There are tons of "how to do it" videos around.
You save a lot of money doing this.
The resin and all that stuff you can buy at Noah's ...
Most of a "Fiberglas" RV is not actually fiberglas, it is a Fiberglas Reinforced Plastic, similar, but thinner, than what is used on commercial Restaurant/bathroom walls. More typical fiberglas is used on curved front and sometimes rear panels. So repairs may not be the same as regular fiberglass as used on boats etc.
This is what many Mfg use, thickness varies by type of RV. with class A being thicker material etc.
