What should I use to seal the roof of my RV?

by Rocke
(Portland, Oregon)

I have a 1985-32ft. Pinnacle motorhome and I was wondering what is the best way to seal the roof on it. It is a one piece roof. The motorhome itself is made out of fiberglass.

It had quite a few leaks in it when I bought it. I have scraped off the old stuff that was on the roof and now I need to reseal it before the weather turns bad. I live in the Northwest and the rains will be coming soon. I need to know what is the best product to use for it?


ANSWER: Greetings Rocke thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

There is a product called Liquid Roof that I understand a lot of RVers have had good results with. I need to let you know up front that I have not personally used this product but, from the research that I have done if I ever need to redo the roof on my motorhome this is the product I would choose to do it.

Here are the advantages of Liquid Roof according to its manufacturer.

* Can be applied over most roofing materials with the exception of silicone and petroleum based materials.
* UV and ozone resistant
* excellent against ponding water
* waterproofs immediately on application.
* not damaged by freezing and has long term flexibility
* final cured properties not damaged by adverse conditions
* one coat application

This is a product that you might want to take a look at. If any of our visitors have any suggestions for you they can add them to this page by clicking on the "Click Here To Post Comments" link located near the bottom of this page.
