You've got a problem a lot of us have faced. Re-roofing a camper can be a major issue, but from the looks of the pictures, you've got a lot of the problem solved.  We re-roofed our slide in camper using an alternative to EPDM and had great results. Here are links to an article on the material and how to do it.
