How much for a new roof

Good Day Group,

I'm new here for I just purchased a new to me 21' Forest River Sierra Sport (CSET21SP) toy hauler and the previous owner NEVER maintained the rubber membrane roof. Presently, there are no leaks however it has a few tears on the side and eventually It's going to need replacement. My question is what would be a ballpark figure to have the roof replaced by say Camping World??


Thanks

Dan..

Your best bet is to ask them. Around here Camping World is high and our local small dealer often does work they do for 1/2 or less. Your area the labor rates could be considerably different. Best to ask in your area.

Ya I know I was just trying to get a "Ball Park" idea of what I would be eventually looking at.

Not cheap. FR paid for the replacement of the rubber roof on our 32' Rockwood 5th wheel. The local dealer said FR reimbursed them for 32 hours of labor, although it took them about 40 hours to do the job. And, that does not include the rubber roof and other materials.

40 hours X $90 per hour?!!

Oh I'm sure it won't be cheap

I had the rubber roof replaced on a 11 ft cab over camper. The cost for the roof only materials and labor was $2500.00. There was no structural damage so no money spent there. I had them replace the air conditioner cover and refrigerator cover. They were in addition to the roof. Not cheap.

In the fall of '13 I filed an insurance claim for a damaged roof on a 33' fifth wheel and the cost was $4200. Fortunately I was only responsible for the deductible of $1K. You should cover those tears with Eternabond RV tape to prevent leaks and further tearing.

Kind of like I figured your estimates here would go $2000 to $6000 Labor rate here is $65 an hour unless you are a frequent customer it is less.........

Good Luck!!!!

opfor2 - Dan,

have you thought about putting a coating over the roof? You say it is in good condition. I bought a 5 gallon roof coating material from the local Home Depot and applied in a very short time and hardly any labor. The product was white and looked great. 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.

Just had a "Rhino" Roof installed on my RES305. It's the same material as a Rhino bedliner for a truck. The dealer said the cost is the same as a traditional roof but the bonus is "no maint ever required". It was $5600 and change. Over $5K was labor!
