This is why you clean your roof frequently!

Twice a year I make the journey to clean the roof on my sabre.
This was last cleaned in September and was stored mid October in our shed.

Soap, water, dish scrubber, dish rag and a stiff bristle hand brush.
Along with elbow grease and determination!

Amazing how quickly they become crappy. I kept The Beast covered all winter and when I pulled the cover off, the roof wasn't as spotless as when I put it away. I guess a cover that allows it to breathe allows a certain amount of dirt thru too.

Thought about dish soap & a little Super Clean and a carwash brush with a long handle.

Honestly as dirty as it was total clean time was an hour.
I think that's attributed to keeping it clean in the first place.

Dish soap and super clean will be fine.
Also an fyi clean all sealing silicone runs as that silicone holds some serious dirt.

I'll post an example.

have over 100,000 miles towing a cargo trailer (1 piece aluminum roof, never cleaned, 8 years no issues) .. but this is my first foray into a camper/toy hauler with a rubber roof on my xlr27hfs. Roof looks a lot like yours in the photos.
I have some Protect All rubber roof treatment stuff that came with my toy hauler. it's stored outside, and the bottle claims to have uv protective stuff.
I will clean it first as you do, but would i be wasting my time with the protect all product ? just had this 2013 xlr waxed, but my detail guy was asking about what he wanted me to do with the roof..
