a windstorm brought down a branch onto our 6 month old roo 233s last night. This put a gouge through the roof that is 2” wide by 3.5” deep. It did not break through the underside at all.
Talking to Camping world, they suggest getting our insurance to replace the entire roof. Granted, they haven’t seen it, they are basing this off the brief description above. There does not seem to be surrounding damage as the branch punched through and did not bash/crush a larger area.
Is a complete replacement warranted. Today I am patching it with expanding foam to fill the void, covering that with a bit of sheet metal to give a hard cap, sealing that with the white ev roofing caulk and then covering it all with a 8x8 inch roofing patch. In my mind this is sufficient as a permanent fix. But it’s also a brand new camper and I’m not ready to let it start going down hill.
What would you all do?
Ps. The picture with the stick is upside down for some reason. It is not sticking through the ceiling.
