How many panels make the roof???

i have a '95 34' excella and will need to have the roof replaced... i know the center section for sure... but i was reading somewhere (can't remember where) about a roof section that is 12inches or so wide...the center section, though i haven't measured, looks closer to 5 ft wide and a good solid 4 ft... just purchased this trailer as a project... refrigerator caught fire and burned the roof and a little of the cabinet... but the rest of the AS is solid...

For the roof, you have three panels. Roof sheet and two window sheets. Inside, you have pretty much the same thing. Most Airstreams also have a pair of aluminum extrusions running the length of the trailer, and many ribs and bows. All the 12 volt, and most of the 120 volt wiring runs down one side of the center panels, front to back, you may have some cooked wiring as well as the panels.

yeah i found the mass of green wires... some good news on that is that within a few inches of the burned portion i have good clean wire... appears to be all 12 volt and all color coded and such... as for the 120v... haven't run into it yet in the roof and wall (and i am sure i will with my luck)... as for the roof panels... i figured... when they hacked in the through the roof vent they managed to cause more damage to the center roof panel than to the curbside panel... i was hoping to hear that the roof had three sections then to the wall with the windows (oh well wishful thinking)... for now i am going to do my best to patch the hole where the fridge vent and resulting damage was... and close it in for weather reasons... i will worry about the fridge and vent later, as well as re-skinning it... roof and side wall should be a fair chunk of change...
