I am going to Perry GA in March. I intend to look up this RV again to see how it is 3 years later. The person that owns the unit belongs to the Singles Group for FMCA (Group that has the Yellow Flags). I am also following another unit that had this roof system put on last year and resides about 100 miles from my area. I know what the roof looked like before it went to this vendor for repairs. Saw the unit last fall after system had been on a year. Again it was an eye catcher. I generally like to follow roof systems after I see how they do at least five years after the refurbishing. When I am at large rallies I walk about and see what others have done. I also have been following other roof reinstalls and roof repairs systems for a bit now.
If my coach and I are still together in 2015, I looking to what I need to do as the roof will be 16 years old that point. What I like about this product is how it rolls over the side of a roof system without loosing its thickness and structure and also covers part of the front and end caps which are prone to cracking from frontal or rear hits which you can see while on top of the roof if there is an issue.
My unit will need some under the old epdm roof checking to see if repairs are needed so I am looking for someone who can do both the repairs and refurbishing the top. I am also looking for some one takes everything off the roof including the AC units before repairs are done. I am looking how the unit feels on a hot day and if has been up north for the winters how it is weathering. I look for any lifting in a system.
These are reasons that will have me continue to follow a vendor's roof system. I also looking at vendors who replace the whole roof with new roofing material but take the old roofing material completely off and do what ever repairs are needed and remove all the items on the roof. I am in no hurry as I have been maintaining my roof system at least twice a year and have not had any leaks for seven years. My roof system is strong and not spongy and is stored inside during the winter these days so there is no hurry for me. I also have been following several roll on roofing systems and watching how they do over time and what is needed for follow up work over time and what are those costs.
I should note I have an alpha roof system so care is needed what product and method you use. I have been putting monies in my tin cup to be ready when the time come to make a final decision.
As with anything it pays to do your homework before jumping into a decision especially with something like an rv roof. You want the best investment for your wallet, demonstration of performance in weather, length of time your decision lasts before more work is needed, what does it bring to a resale value, and if you do not do it yourself how well does the installer follow up if you have issues down the road
Hope this info help. Safe travels. Toni C

Will do. You can also feel free which I do frequently is contact the vendor and see if there are folks in your area that have used the product so that you may be able to contact as a reference to include the possibly to go look at directly. The rvroof folks put this article on their blog Friday which I just found today. It might worth the time to review.
