I actually had much better reception with my old 5er that had a metal roof. My antenna was also closer to the roof. I am thinking the metal roof gave the antenna a greater ground plane to bounce the signal back to the antenna.
Having the new trailer sitting next to our old trailer before selling it. I got several more stations on the old trailer.
That is why I am thinking the metal roofs help the signal.
