The back of my trailer is delaminating. Has anyone had a professional fix a delamination problem?

What was the cost ????

As a "gestimate", I'd say in the range of $2500 to $3000. The right side of mine that was done was about 15 feet and it cost $6400.. All was ripped off, replaced and repainted/sealed with new decals.

JMHO, but I think I would just find the source of the leak, stop it, and just live with the delamination.

fix the leaks. Mine delamed around a window. fixed the leak and within a week the sun heated it up enough to pull it back up tight.
BUT you have to attend to it quickly.

If my RV was new I probably would have it repaired. If my RV was older and it annoyed me too much I would remove the gel coat and replace it with the metal siding.

I got an estimate of $6K from CW to fix mine. Found it simpler & easier to trade. As a fulltimer, have to consider alternative living solutions. Estimated repair time was 4 weeks.

If ONLY the rear Filon, then $2500 to $3500 total. But remember, at THAT location, you may also have rear top roof rot also under the roof. That is NOT real delamination---it was caused by water intrusion. Delam (definition) is usually just a release or lack of glue causing the bubble. Doug
