What Roof Material?

Hello I have a 2017 Forest River, Cherokee Wolf Pup 16fq. Does anybody know for sure what type of roofing material is used on this model by the manufacturer? EDPM or TPO?
Thanks,
Ken,

Thanks,
Ken,
EPDM (rubber) roofs are almost always have a smooth surface texture.

TPO roofs ( a form of plastic) have a fine texture to them.

My 2018 MicroLite has a TPO roof which is supposed to be longer lasting than an EPDM roof.

Sight unseen I'd wager you have a TPO roof.

Take a look and you should see which roof you have.

If the roofing material is the same color top and bottom, it is TPO.

No I have not, currently enroute to my winter home. After I get settled, thinking of pulling down the roof vent frame to see if the roofing material has black backing or not as another poster suggested . Thanks, Ken.

Well I lost the roof vent lid heading down to my winter home so I had to take the vent frame down in order to replace the lid. Was able to see the roofing material underside. Underside is white. And rather thin I might add.
