Thanks to all for the input.
I watched the youtube on the Rhino roofing and it seem nice. But. I called Rhino and the guy there said it was great but there is nobody near me to do this. The nearest place is about 625 miles from me but it would still be possible as the dealer is only 50 miles from the in-laws place. Well, I called the dealer/applicator was told they and other dealers were having warranty issues and are no longer doing that type of roof.

I also asked about price comparison and neither Rhino or the dealer would even tell me how the price compared to having a new EPDM roof installed. I asked that because some wrote that they were "crazy expensive".

The bottom line is I was told locally I would expect to pay around $2500 for my 32 footer. And yes I know there are always cost over runs.

As they say, "it is what it is".

Thanks again,

A friend of mine with a 31 ft fifth wheel was quoted $1800 for the LineX version. Don't know of any warranty issues. A EPDM roof replacement price can vary from 2k - 5K. Kinda steep.

My unit is much smaller, only 18 feet. My local rv guy wants 1300 to do it. After doing some research using his quote of 400 for theEPDM I have decided to do it myself. Plenty of instruction online on how to do it. about 90 bucks a gallon. Both he and the company website state my rig needs 4 gallons. You basically just prep it and repair any leaks and then paint it on with a squeegee and roller. Its self leveling and it will set itself. I just can't pay a guy 1000 bucks to do What I can do.

I saw a camper this past winter at a park where I was hosting. He had a spray on roof done a couple of years previous. He said it hadn't been touched since even for any cleaning. It looked good, but a bit dirty. Who knows how long it will last. I still wonder about caulking around the edges and where roof mounted stuff sits.

Honestly the spray roof if the way to go. Excel fifth wheels even offered it as an option. I had gotten quotes from rvroof when we were full timing. Also had a forum friend get Forest River to pay for his since it was more economical than them doing a fiberglass roof replacement on a motorhome. He loves his still, and no maintenance.

New roof, no electric service

The roof was replaced by the dealer prior to purchasing our older Jayco Fifth Wheel Designer Series because of a leak. The dealer said everything worked..don't know how that was determined because when checking it out after taking possession, no lights inside or outside, very few recepticals worked. Found screws went through the wiring when it was "put back together;" as far as we see it, unit is unusable and dealer will do nothing. Many other problems as well!
