I haven't had to deal with hail so I don't have any pictures to share. Are you able to take some pictures of your roof to post here? Someone with hail experience might be able to provide some feedback.

I'll post some pictures later. It was getting dark outside. It didn't broke through the roof. It's almost like a scuff mark. I need to clean it to be sure. First camping trip this year. Heading to myrtle beach this weekend.

Most likely there are pictures in various threads from members but I haven't come across them yet. I did find one picture of hail damage but it only showed damage to the vents or plastic covers.

I had a metal-sided Thor-California Tahoe that suffered $5500 worth of hail damage and none of the damage was on the roof. It was metal sides, vents, awning, A/C cover, etc. I don't remember seeing any marks on the roof.

Didn't get a chance to take picture. Took the camper to get service work done on the water heater. It wasn't lighting the gas. And the tv had a buzzing noise coming from it. And I had a breaker box under the sink busted. Don't know when I'll get it back.

I had one with hail damage but the main damage was broken marker light covers. Even the vent seemed to hold up. FWIW

Our 2013 Puma 5er was totaled last year from hail. Beat the siding up and broke fridge vent and other vents, and dented antenna. No roof damage, just some cracks In the dicor from it.

Fyi after working in the collision industry in Oklahoma most of my working life, hail wont scratch or scuff things 99.9% of the time. Thats how we can tell if its real or "made up" hail damage. You are probably just seeing where the impact cleaned some dirt or dust off the roof if it looks like a scuff.
