Anyone replaced/repaired pop up roof

The whole top frame needs attention and Iím not sure itís worth the effort. All of the material(plywood or whatever compressed material) underneath the front and back edges are rotting and coming out. The thin sheet metal underneath, in turn, is coming loose. There has to be a way to fabricate some kind of replacing of this material. The framing and seals of course at the bottom are loose also. Any ideas? Burn it?

Anything can be restored, it just depends on how much time and money you want to invest in the project. There's a point at which it's not worth fixing, versus getting another one that's in much better condition, and can be enjoyed right away. Then there's the folks that just love a challenge, and don't care how long it takes. You didn't say what year, or model pop up you have.

94 year and model 1006. I paid a man $500 for this pop up and I have used it for 5 years.
I have got my moneys worth but for what I use it for it works great. Wondering if there is a way I haven't thought of. The top really only serves a few purposes. Keep the vinyl attached and house the wiring and lights. The top however is just a covering. The problem is shaping metal or fabricating it.

Instead of using aluminum for the roof you could use rubber roofing material. It would be easier to work with, just use a solid adhesive to secure it. Even the aluminum is just sheets that are secured by the edging so realistically not much shaping either...
