A QUALITY job runs about $150 to $175 a foot. Pay less and you always get what you pay for The job will take 2 to 4 business days. The price should include new decking on roof as you CANNOT install rubber over existing roof or decking. The new decking will be over the existing deck. Doug
Doug, what do you think about the two part paints for repairing the rubber roofs?
I don't We did one 10 years ago on a National Sea Breeze and the results were horrible and we will not do another. Once the rubber gets to the point (abuse/solvents), then you need to replace the rubber. The ONLY thing I have seen that is an alternative was that Florida company that installed some type 0f resin/fiberglass coating. Doug
This is just a suggestion. If you plan on keeping this rig for quite a while, here's something to think about. It's kind of relatively new for RV roofs but, so far, from what I've read, it's getting outstanding reviews. I'm talking about removing the rubber roof and having a "spray on" roof put on by a company. It's almost identical to the "spray in" pick up bed liners.
In the quotes I've seen, it's considerably cheaper than re-roofing with rubber or EDPM or the other material they use. The new sprayed on roofs are phenomenally more durable than the rubber ones they replaced. Now, no one that I know gets up on their roof and square dances but, in the event you have to get up there for maintenance of items, you'll have no fear of walking around and scuffing, tearing or damaging it AT ALL! And, the old "tree branch" that has damaged many-a-rubber roof out there is a thing of the past.
Again, it's just something to think about. So far, of all the reviews and or posts I've seen, absolutely NO ONE has regretted it and would go back to a rubber roof. It might be worth a look for you.

Just got a quote for 20 warranty spray on done by firm just south of Jacksonville, FL for $4812 tax included with new vent covers. The Sat installed free if I pick it up from Camping World for $688 on sale. I have to check to see if waranty is transferable to new owner if I sell, as it would be a great value to any buyer. It will eliminate all need to caulk, as they remove all caulk and do any repairs to spots on rubber roof, even removing it all if necessary, (at additional cost), prime then coat then spray it white. Let's face it this is where to start with a remodel, as if everything else is new and yet it leaks, that would be dumb. So now I have to make up my mind to do it as they can schedual it to be done starting in two weeks,just before I usualy head to Upstate NY. With this new roof I will feel much better parking it for the winter outside, of course fully winterized. I think this is better than replacing the EDPM which has been nothing but a caulking PITA.Thanks for the suggestion!
EDPM roofing is available for a fraction of those $5000 jobs as a DIY project. I've seen a blog where someone did his own in a couple three days for under $2000. Replaced all the vent covers and devices where needed too. For my rig, a 37', I could probably get the 35' roll for $487 (front cap is at least 2'), add a few materials and vent covers and do the job for under $1000. Add another $1000 for help if I don't want to do it myself all alone.
