I have a 27' Nash TT. The old caulking on the roof has dry-rotted and I need it all removed and re-caulked. There has also been some leakage where I can feel a soft spot in the roof, so that will have to be repaired too.
Any idea what a ballpark cost for this would be? I live in VA, and will have to call around to find someplace to do the work, but would like a little heads up on what to expect.
Do not be surprised that when the roof is opened for inspection the rot has spread to the walls. Water does not stop running. My friend had the same problem with his Nash. His wife really wanted to keep the unit so he bit the bullet and paid the almost $10,000 for repairs.
Now he is up on the unit several times a year inspecting the roof.

From the Model Year, I believe, like others, that your going to have a lot more than just that caulking and soft spot to deal with. There's much to them, and when water enters - it spreads, and given all the years....it is going to be problematic. I;ll go out on a limb and say you can get another used trailer for the cost of any reputable repairs. Safe travels.
AS critical as the roofing, sealing materials and roof-wall interfaces are, you'd think RV manufacturers would invest in AND PASS ALONG the price of much better materials and sealing protocols! Crimminies - I paid $70K for my trailer! Would I have balked at another $2K for significantly better weather proofing (and possibly even guarantee)?
