If you get it done at rv roof, take pictures during the process if possible. Before, during and after. Love to learn more about the process and your thoughts on the process. Good luck.

Will do. They said they take lots of pictures during the process, damage and rotten wood. Many of the units they work on end up in litigation die to faulty or a complete lack of repairs.

Like Garrette, I'd love to see pictures of this. I've had them saved in my favorites for a while, but never known anyone personally that did it. Plenty of pictures on the site. If I were going to keep an RV for a while, I'd probably have it done whether I needed it or not. Besides cost, why in the world wouldn't a manf. do this from the get go? It would minimize warranty claims? I really hope they approve this for you. It would be to yours and FR's advantage I think.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

FYI RhinoLiner does RV roofs also.




Dealers may be limited. Just something to keep under your bonnet.

I promised to keep those following updated. Well, not much to report. Motorhome parked in garage. Dealers are not interested in trade unless I take 20k hit, I'm too honest to sell to a private owner with issues, Forest River Inc. = silent. RV roof folks in Jacksonville seem wonderful, but it's a 3200 out of pocket fix. So, back to square one, motorhome sits in garage, wife writes the check for it each month. Lol. I'll update if something changes.

Well, if I were in those shoes........If I really liked the motorhome and intended on keeping it, I'd probably end up just forking over the 3200 and get the roof I wanted, plus some peace of mind. $3200 vs. $20k hit is quite a difference. I took a $15k hit on my tiffin at 7 months old and had to try and forget about it quick as it made me sick. I'm like you with the "too honest to sell to private owner" deal. I've only sold 2 out of 6 RV's to an individual, but those had NO problems and both parties were happy campers. I'm kind of ticked you hadn't got any response from FR, especially since I've seen them replacing whole roofs in person at their service center.

Trust me, the $3200 fix seems like the best option. They mailed me a sample, and that stuff looks tough!! It's an 1/8 inch thick.

I'm not sure why you have to park it. It should still be usable. Also, I have not given up on pushing for resolution. I have been prodding our service department to be pro-active and not just re-active to the dealer requests. Sometimes it works... I try to be the squeaky wheel they can't mute.

I'm like chinese water torture. Drip...Drip...Drip...Drip
(with all of our recent "over sensitivity" in this nation I feel the need to point out that I mean no offense to the chinese, nor any religion thats hold water holy. No drips were harmed in the making of this post. And I am in no way inferring that the chinese still torture anyone)

I was informed they are looking at multiple options. Not really "silence". They asked the dealer for some better pictures and more info on the re-coat process.
