Replacement Roof

Hello again,

I have heard of a material other than a EPDM rubber roof that is supposed to be longer lasting. I saw an ad on Ebay about a trailer with this better roof and I E-mailed the person and told him I was not interested in what he was selling but wanted to know what it was he ( a dealer in the Eastern U.S.) had used.
He replied, told me, but I cannot for the life of me find the E-mail

Maybe the masses out there can help.

Is there something other than a EPDM rubber roof as a replacement?
Is it longer lasting than EPDM?
To hire it done (replace the roof) how does it compare in pricing?

I am not interested in the cost/benefit based on my 5th wheels value but rather good honest thoughts about re-roofing. I am not interested I replacing the trailer as I have maintained it very well since I have owned it.

I have a 1995 Jayco 3210RLRwhich is in excellent condition except the roof.

Also, I would be interested in a service facility within a reasonable driving distance that is honest and fair to do the job.

I am located about 35 miles North of Detroit Michigan.

Thanks!!!

Pete

In trailer life magazine there are a couple different advertisements on the roof you are talking about I believe. If I remember correctly they will come to you and complete the job. Now, I don't have a TR magazine around the house and I have the same memory problem as you :-) Anyway, that's where I have seen it. Good luck.

Before installing this product, see how much weight it will add to your rig.

A coworker last spring had a Rhino Linings RV roof put on his 2 year old 5th wheel (non Jayco). So far he absolutely loves it. Says he now never has any roof maintenance. I understand it is very similar to the truck bed liner. If I had to replace my roof, I would seriously consider it.

TPM rubber roof. You can also get liquid EDPM and put it on fairly thick for a reasonable price. I like the rino roof but it is crazy expensive.

We had a friend that had the same done to his rig five years ago and loves it also no problems and he is a full timer he had it done to a MH

IF I ever have to replace my rubber roof I would go with a spray in truck bed liner. I did my truck myself and could easily do my roof..

If I ever need a new roof, these spray on products will be given consideration.
