Replacing a roof is a lot of labor. Just no getting around it. An when you are paying someone $100/hr, it sure adds up quick.

This question we have experience with! Fall, 2010 we looked in our 1993 Prowler TT to see that it had leaked..lots...17' TT I believe..Roof replacement was $2351.10 here in SW MO..breakdown was labor $1500 & Materials $802.17..balance S.Tax..

Material used was from the Dicor Corp.."Brite-Ply" Roofing System..later sold the TT, so hope that the roof is holding up!

Rino RV Roof

Here is the web site for RINO Rhino Eco Coat Bed Liner, Best Spray on Bed Liner, Truck Bed Liner | Rhino Linings

Also, this site has a video Rhino Linings Introduces Long-Term RV Roof Repair and Restoration Product

Start your search and gather more information, I would do this. Where I had my F150 bed sprayed, they are getting in to this business, they use Linex products. So do a web search on this and you will find a lot of information.

Wow! Not sure where you're located but the pricing I got for the Rhino roof here in Florida was much less than that shown by 305RESGUY. First, I would NOT trust Camping World to do it. Secondly, the Rhino roof guys here offer a lifetime warranty and the pricing they gave me was about $125 per linear foot of your TT/RV. That includes removal of all the vents, AC, etc and re installation with new seals as well as cleaning, prep and inspection of the existing roof to make sure the substrate is good. The guy who does them is in Jacksonville; takes about 4-5 days to complete.

I was very happy and the roof stayed in excellent condition. It was not an issue when I traded my trailer in years later for a new one.

Just thought you might consider it. I think it cost about $100-$125. A lot less than a new roof and way less labor. I know that for a fact as I spent four days helping put a new roof on a friends 30' TT.

Wish you the best with what ever you decide.
YES!!! This is exactly what I'm going to do. DICOR, the manufacture of my roof sells a refresh kit. I do have a few small tear's along the edge of the roof so I will use the proper repair tape.

$5K is a good estimate.
Might look at Dicor products to patch and coat existing roof. Might work fo quite a while.
