Talking Newbie to RV life

Hey Group,
Glad to be on board here. My Wife and I retired last year and finally have time to enjoy life TOGETHER. We are VERY grateful. So, we are now going to enjoy life in an RV. We have both camped before but not in a travel trailer. So much to learn. So, that said, if I ask a stupid question..... be kind. 😂

First question. How can I verify if our trailer has a TPO roof? Any tell tale signs?
Thanks.

Mike and Janice

I donít have a TPO but if itís a new trailer your dealer or your brochure should tell you what you have for your build. Google description is as fol!

An EDPM rubber roof will be very slippery when wet, while a TPO roof is not. TPO is also very glossy while EPDM is not. The texture may also give some clues as to what type of roof is on your RV or camper. EPDM is very smooth, while TPO may be slightly bumpy, similar to an orange peel.
