It's a TPO roof by Alpha Systems. Start here:
Alpha Systems, LLC - Products for the RV, Cargo Trailer, Marine and Modular & Manufactured Housing Industries

I'm sure they used something other than just plain ol silicolne caulk. However TPO material for RV roof is common now. I would stop at a camping world store and have a chat with them. Also go to your favorite RV dealer and ask them also what they use in their repair bays.

Just to Clarify. Columbus puts the rubber roof on , not TPO.

I need to do some touch up on my 320 and need to know what type, brand and color Columbus uses. I have the brown and cream color trailer.
Thanks Mike

It's winter in the snowbelt but for you lucky guys in the south, here is how to confirm what you have for roof material.
RV 101® – How to Determine RV Roof Types | The #1 RV Video Education training Source RV 101®


TPO Thermoplastic Polyolefin or
EPDM ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber

TPO is newer style but I don't know what the advantage is. We assume newer is better but that may not be the case for RV roofing.

I would think Dicor brand would have a roof sealer product in cream color but who knows.

My Columbus has a Gray roof on it and when I added my Fantastic Fan vent cover all I could find is the white lap sealant. I called Dicor direct about getting the Gray caulk and they told me that I could order it by the case and it was like 175.00 for the 12 tubes. So I just used the white that I had because it would dry up by time I used that much of it. No one can see it on top of the roof anyways.

I made a pdf quick cheat sheet so you can inspect your own room and find out if you have a TPO or EPDM style room material. You need to know this for picking sealer, cleaner, patches, repair kits, etc. for your particular type of roof. The color on the back is the telltale key.

Black on the back = EPDM
White (same color top bottom) on the back = TPO.
