Columbus Roofing

Do Columbus fifth wheels us EPDM or TPO on the roof? I am getting ready to put Eternabond tape around vents, skylight and antenna. Should I trim down the lap sealant where it is piled on heavy, to make a smoother job? Thanks for all information

All I can find in the Brochure it says rubber roof. Call the Columbus factory and ask them to make sure. (574) 821-1505.

My Columbus dealer shows TPO in their website.
Christopher Columbus awhile back said Columbus brand = EPDM
There are sealants and other products that work on either style of material.

Here is how to confirm what YOU have. Click this link!

Don't worry about trimming down sealant, just encapsulate it with the Eternabond and you will be good.
