Thanks Woodman, I had hail damage on my roof also. 2 neighbors got new roofs, State Farm would help me. I wait for another hurricane.

My Jayco TT was hit by hail three times. The rubber roof was always fine, it was the aluminum siding and the roof fixtures that were destroyed.

We got caught 2 miles from the Live Oak Ridge camground on Lake Belton, TX the last weekend of March, and were clobbered by baseball sized hail for over 10 minutes. Blew out the skylight (again), but all of the windows survived. The aluminum skin, however....$15,000 repair bill. Insurance company said it was time to total it. ($6,000 damage to the truck).

Our new Rockwood 5er arrives in 2 weeks. :-) Fiberglass siding this time, should stand up to hail a lot better!

I've never had hail damage to a rubber roof in six years. And I live in central Indiana.

That's amazing, I would cry if my truck got destroyed like that. Were they able to fix it or did you trade it.?

Truck was repaired, it's smooth and shiny. The roof was cut off and an new one wielded in, and the hood was replaced. The rest of the dents were taking care of by the paintless dent repair team there.

The trailer was a total loss due to the expense of replacing all of the aluminum, though. The dealership agree, the fiberglass sided units fare much better with hail storms than the aluminum ones.

I'll be getting Max Aire II's to protect the vents on the new trailer ASAP.

getting the max air are cheap protection, but the skylights that are popular now on units are just a waist IMO either they all leak or a hail storm will break them. But I guess people like them. I have one over the shower area, I would rather have a light myself. You are right gel coat will hold up better in a hail storm, but I don't know with baseball size hail. I do not even remember any winter like this in Virginia. It seems like it will not end....It will end oneday and we can get back to camping again...... What new trailer did you buy?

I know I am a little late on this post, but 4 years ago we had a hail storm. The cost to repair the hail damage was over $ 5,500.00. Had to replace the roof, holes punched through the rubber membrane, all four sky lights broken, all covers broken(refrig., AC) and some of the running lights on the out side.
So can it damage a rubber roof, yes.
