  1. What adhesive did you use for the roof? I did a one-side latex material and it was HELL to work with. Wish I would have done the dual-size roll on stuff, I'm certain it would have turned out better.

  2. Good Morning Chris Iverson. Yes, your video has been helpful. I need to know what wood you used when you replace the rood, was it 3/4 " or 1/2" ? I'm 60 years old and my husband passed away on Aug 26, 2016. It's been heart breaking to say the least. I have to replace the entire roof on my 42' Fifth Wheel. The roof is spongy and I have been patching it with Henrys Rubberized Wet Patch, which apparently only comes in black. Anyway, Did you put down a moisture barrior?  if so, at what point? I know the membrane is going to cost me at least $750.00 plus shipping. I also couldn't make out what type of adhesive you used? Please help me, if you can. I am dealing with a real mess. Thank You Chris

  3. So once you have removed roof and have exposed the metal beams running across rv. And you added ply wood roof down what are you screwing the plywood roof into? Those metal beams?I guess my actual question is what is securing the plywood roof down.

  4. It makes one wonder for as much engineering that goes into one of these motor homes- Why didn't they do it right the first time at the factory? Mine is a 90 model and has seams in the roof everywhere. To me, a seam in the roof is invitation to failure and the engineering dept. should have known a stupid idea when they see one. A roof should me engineered properly and built with proper materials with out any seams.

  5. Thanks for the video, I have a 1994 Coachman, That needs major repairs , rear has delaminated, roof sagging near AC, Its overwhelming, I have been on YOU TUBE for months looking for ideas. I am retired  with a pension . I want or would like to get back on the road again RV has been parked for 2yrs now. Finally working up the courage to tackle this project.I do not know where to start, DO I remove ceiling 1'st or the roof       k this world is made up of 95%

  6. What did you use on the inside roof? Vinyl wall paper? What did you use for glue sprays?
    Seams inside?

    I think I will use the roll on rubber roof, but the ceiling has be stymied.
