Had the Jayco pressure tested and re-sealed a couple years ago and now I'm thinking it's time to re-roof.
Who's had it done and what were the price quotes?
I know some shops pull the rubber off and repair the underlying roof as needed and others deck over it with all new plywood.
Please share your experiences.

I've done it myself for less than $1000. Got a new roll of rubber and sealants and went to work. Took everything off roof, put new sheathing on over the old and rolled out the new roof. Really not a hard job, just time consuming for one person. I probably had about 100 hours in this project.

I never quoted having somebody else do it. I think several on this forum said the cost was several $1K to do...not in my budget.

Prev owners did some cobbed maintenance and repair. Kool Seal? and Silicone. Doesn't leak right now (I had it pressure tested and re-sealed) but there's evidence of underlayment damage. Before I go through another test/repair exercise I think a replacement might be in order. Has the roofing "skin" a tech called "tablecloth." Think of the picnic table cloths with a plastic coating over a fuzzy cloth bottom.

More like "because" it's an '03 Jayco. They used an odd roof material for awhile.

I can't answer your question but, if it's your 2003 Jayco, does the roof really need replaced? I have a 96 Southwind with the original roof, it's in good condition. I just keep it clean.
I may apply a coating in a few years if I still own it but I can't see replacing unless it's necessary. JMO

I got a quote for my 29 foot Class C and it was $5200, I did it myself and replaced all the roof vents and the bubble over the shower for about $900.

They used TPO, a generally better material than the more common and cheaper rubber (EPDM) with a life of at least 12 years. Don't replace it unless you see it really replacing which, in Florida sun, is possible, I suppose..

Incidentally, the current 2012 brochure indicates they've gone to a fiberglass roof. Even better.

Had our rubber roof replaced by an insurance claim...
Cost was around $5800.

Thanks!
This coach has also spent its life in the sun. FL and some winters in places like Quartszite.
