Roof caulking

Hi folks
I am curious what is the best caulking to use in the event that I find I need to replace it on my PUP. I looked at what I have it is not the typical White Dicor type caulking on other rigs. Mine is closer to clear. A bit yellowed.
I have a rockwood premier which has a tan/black color scheme.
Thanks.

I would use Eternabond tape instead of chalking. I ran a strip of tape along both edges of the roof on my new HW296. Once it is on your all set. You do not have to worry about the chalk shrinking and causing a leak before you realize it. I wanted to prevent the leak before it ever happened.

I used a 2" wide roll. I basically wanted 1" on the metal rail along the edge and 1" on the roof itself for proper coverage. I am very pleased with how it came out.

Vin.

I think we have a similar color scheme. White would look out of place for us.

Do you have the rough surface roof? I contacted eternabond last year and they suggested that the tape will not adhere will to the rough surface roofs that are found on many popup trailer. Want to say the roof is like pebbles, but not quite that rough.
