Roof Material...Rubber?

Hi, I have a 2014 Wildwood KQBTS, wondering if this is a rubber roof. First time owner. Purchased it in the Fall, and have just started using it. And one of my to do items is to get up on the roof and clean it. As always, thanks for your help!

I'm sure it is rubber. I only know of three roof materials for rv's. Rubber, fiberglass or aluminum.

Rubber roofs come in two different materials. EPDM or TPO

Typically, rubber roofs are smooth and fiberglass is textured. tap on the roof with the edge of a quarter. If it makes a dull "thud" sound, it's rubber. If the sound is a "tick" sound, it's not rubber and most likely fiberglass.

Wildwoods don't have fiberglass or aluminum roofs.
It's either EPDM or TPO.

okay, thank you, wondering if recommended cleaning methods are the same for EPDM and TPO.
