Angry '04 Jayflight Roof repair

We were just told by our dealer / winter storage folks that check our whole trailer every year that our roof needs to be re-done. I saw the photo and I guess it does.
$6200???? WOW WOW WOW. and of course, insurance is on their way to finding a loop hole and not paying. I only paid about $9500 for the whole trailer.
Has anyone done a big job like this for less money? Are there any private contractors that do this sort of thing?

Yikes.

Personally, I would over coat it with RV rubber roof.
There is some good DIY videos on Youtube



I am going to do this later this year.

best regards,
Doug

I'm not sure where you live but our local Craigslist rv section has a few ads for roof repair... We are in the Boston area.

'04 Jayflight Roof repair

I am having mine done right now. A little different situation than yours.
Mine was damaged from a storm that blew my awning on top of my roof. Ins covered mine i dont know if they cover damage unless something other than maint or normal wear and tear.
My estimate was for a new roof with all new decking, new vents and covers and a new 20 ft awning all for 7800.00 ouch
Thank goodness for ins in this situation.
I have a friend who got his rubber roof replaced by a guy on craiglist and his was about 2500 installed but they didnt replace any wood they just put down some luan wood and glued the new roof to that.
Dont know if that will work for you but you might check into it.
Hope this helps
Robert

That sounds right we looked at 2006 314BHDS with new roof and all new decking repair was $6,300 BUT when we looked at trailer very clean but the slide rear bunk room had water damaged not repaired by insurance we passed on this TT. All I can say check your TT over real good water seeks the least resistant path,. The dealer will stand behind the repair. check around.

If it's been checked every year and they are just saying it needs replaced this year that you don't have a rotten roof?
If the covering is just worn and has some pin holes, even a few tears I'd cover tears with Externabond and coat it with EDPM rubber roof coating.
Probably a $500 DIY job.

Can you describe the pictures and the extent of the damage?

I'm a little confused, why would insurance have to cover your roof?

You know how those pesky low branches can easly "tear" a roof right?? wink wink Naw, just kidding or was I? Im not sure on the size of your TT but I'd re-coat it myself with the roll/paint on coating before paying a dealer or someone that much to lay down a new roof. Even at that price I'd atempt to install it myself. If you do pay someome to do it shop around first.

For my 2006 Jayco's roof, and the time is right, I'll be doing the same.

re: I'd cover tears with Externabond and coat it with EDPM rubber roof coating.

Nice and easy 2 x day DIY project. Maybe 3 day, if one does the outer edges 1st, then coats the main roof the next day.

And best of all, very low cost.
