Haven't had a 90-degree day where we are in over 700 days. The caulking is another story and is fairly consistent with what I've run across in other parts of the unit as far as workmanship goes.
"I WANTED the slaesman and the dude" "to tell me the whole story" ~~~not going to happen & they may not know the whole story.
Best to educate yourself as best as possible, relying on sales-people will get you in trouble many times.
Your non-painted bathroom looking roof is actually one of the selling points of why I purchasd a Sunseeker.
A high % of RV's actually have a rubber roof glued down, in my opinion not as durable. Have seen several rubber roofs coming up, catching wind, ballooning up, tearing, bubbles under rubber memebrane, etc...
Now, with that in mind, Sunseeker Roofs still need maintenance (keeping clean and maintaining all those seals). Inspecting for roof cracks --few reports of this (should be few).
Get to know your RIG, inside & out, use it a lot th first year, to work out bugs and utilize the warranty period.
This forum is good place to gain knowledge.
Good luck and get out there making lasting adventures!
