yes it should be quieter and stronger. Do they give you an estimate on how much weight you will be adding to your unit?

They did, but it wasn't that much and I don't remember. I'll try to remember to ask again tomorrow. I need to weigh it again anyway since I haven't done it in several years. I know I have a little more stuff I travel with now vs 5 years ago, but not too much. Once a year I clean out the basement just to vacuum it out and stuff that hasn't been used stays home.

Ed,

Is the complete removal of all the original rubber membrane standard? What about the additional luan decking they're putting on? Are those items something they do on each and every job, or is that specific to YOUR trailer? Because there was a known leak perhaps?

Man, that's going to be nice when they're done!

They don't take the old membrane off unless they see or suspect a leak and damage to the decking. I had several leak/suspect leak areas, but I was lucky none of it was more than minor. I'm sure glad I got this done when I did. Another wet spring and I would have a major major disaster. If they do have to replace a piece of luan they have to do the entire roof so it will be level, but it should look superior.

I have two more pictures taken a few minutes ago I will u/l right after this reply to you.

Progress as if 10:00am this morning. Getting closer to starting the spray process. Of course the preparation is much longer than the actual spray time. They are still shooting for it being ready for me to hook up and travel by noon tomorrow.

So if they have to luan the entire roof does the cost go up considerably over the initial quote?

The cost of the luan sheets and approx 4 hours labor. So it goes up a little.

Reading over your posts it sounds like they remove the existing luan and replace it rather than decking over it.
Quite a job but it sure sounds like you are getting something that will be just short of bullet-proof.
Your pic #2, have they sanded the paint/caulk from the aluminum trip next to the roof? Looks shiny.
Looking forward to the end results. Thanks for posting, Ed!

That's not what I read. I understood that they put the new luan right over the old to make the roof level.

I'd be disappointed if the rain noise went away. Love my HTT for just that reason.

Wish the wife would let me open windows at home when it rains. She likes the rain, but not the traffic noise.
