Default New PolyUrea roof comming my way!

Hey everyone. October 5th Iím scheduled to have the roof on my 189FDS Redone.

Unless someone this community has a warning I should consider, Iím going to go with Flex Armor (rvroof.com). Basically itís truck bed liner sprayed on as a roof membrane. Itís actually the least expensive option I have found, and on paper it seams like a durable bargain with a decent warranty.

So... any words of advice or warnings from the community? During to know your thoughts.

I had never heard of this stuff until you posted your question, above -- I did a little googling, and I must say I am sold. See this article:

https://www.truckcampermagazine.com/...on-and-review/

It sounds to me like you are doing exactly the right thing -- good luck, and let us know how it goes!

sounds nice, curious what will this run you, and are they removing roof vents, etc to do it?

Is it opaque enough for light to come in? I noticed in the article they sprayed over a bathroom skylight. Does that seem weird?

He also mentioned getting new vent covers, etc... I wonder if that's a requirement or an option.

They remove the AC (includes new gadget), and install new plumbing vent and refrigerator vent and new Camco hood for the vent fan. For my 189FDS, he quoted me $2900. The do not spray slide out roofs - which is OK, I have an awning on that anyways. The skylight you have three options. Mask and spray around it, Or if itís old the spray over it or Pay addíl to replace it.

He says about half his customers ask for the skylight to be sprayed over because the older ones are deteriorating, new skylight is a couple hundred bucks depending on size... and yes, it’s opaque so no more Natural light. Mine is in good shape so I’m opting to have is masked off and sprayed around.

The new vent covers are built into the price. I’m guessing that’s for the leak warranty

Doing so, would require a road trip thousands of miles across the country to Florida which would not be of interest.

Agnitio,
I have that installed on my FunFinder. Have had it for over a year. No problems at all. The installation was done in Denton Texas. everything was just as quoted, FF was in the shop for only three days, great experience. Charles

Probably some reason they don't do this... but I've always thought RVs and trailers/5th wheel roofs should be pitched just slightly to allow rain to flow off and not pool.
