Roof Materials

I have been trying to nail down what the roof makeup is on my new Jay Flight. We have not brought it home yet due to the delightful Pennsylvania weather. Jayco's website doesn't seem to have much info other that showing how strong they are. Is it a rubber roof or some other material such as fiberglass or some type of plastic?

Jayco Masters Training will tell dealers, to tell their customers, it's not as important what the roof material is made of, as it is what's under the roof material.

3/8" screwed plywood and a roof system which was tested up to 4500#.

That's kind of a dumb statement. If the roof material isn't of good quality what's under it isn't going to keep its integrity.

It sounds like a statement for first time buyers to impress them. Otherwise it is a dumb statement.

Does anyone know what they put under my (2009) rubbery looking roof? It seems to be holding up fine, always wondered what was under it.

Here is a link to the brochure for your TT. Looks like the roof is Tuffshell laminated vacuum bonded, with one-piece seamless rubber roof material.

Thanks for the link. It really doesn't say anything about the roof except for the rubber. I'd like to know what's immediately under it. I know it's probably some sort of bonded construction similar to the walls because I know there's styrofoam in there. Just wondering if there's a piece of 3/8" plywood on top or just a piece of plastic like there is in the walls.

The brochure says in two places that the walls and floor are made of the Tuffshell. Huh? The floor is just a piece of plywood.
