I have nothing to add to the insurance part of the discussion.

However, should you find yourself involved in the choices of what to do? May I suggest looking at Rhino Bed Liner. There was some talk of people considering using it. If memory serves me, it was pretty highly touted. It is mixed for a specific application, so a certain amount of flex is called for, for an RV roof. Tough stuff, durable, water proof.

Do they have colors other than black? I can't imagine a black roof.

Bedliner is a good option but you still need a good roof to spray it on.

Yes...it would require a clean roofing space...new plywood I would guess.

Judging from the condition of our Rhino sprayed in bed liner and up over the sides too on our 2004.5 Chevy LB truck bought new and had the liner sprayed in before we drove it, the Rhino liner lasts and looking very good 17 years later. Ours of course is black and has hardly faded much at all. I have the color renew kit that was sent to me from Rhino in about 2012 and never used it yet as the OEM liner still looks quite good. What they sprayed on is really tough and sure is lasting. Nothing slides around on bed liner like other brands which are so well noted for doing.

When a tornado went over us and ripped the breaches off the big pines in February in 2015 when snow birding in our Carriage 29' 5th wheel and the sharp ends of the branches falling on the 5th wheel rubber roof put 6 holes thru the rubber roof. I wanted to have a Rhino sprayed on roof to replace it but the insurance wouldn't pay the cost. Thus, and additional layer of 1/4" marine plywood was put on and a new rubber membrane glued on. Cost was $4460 done here in Michigan and included a new 15' awning material installed that had 3 holes in the old one from the branches that pierced it. Got 2 estimates down in Florida to have it done there and the same was quoted at $7700 and $7400 they both quoted just patching the holes in the OEM plywood roof . Insurance said it was too high. I had patched all the holes in the roof with Dynaflex 230 hours after the tornado so the insulation wouldn't get wetter or saturated. Always carry a tube of it in both of our RV's just in case of need. Very good stuff for caulking and works on wet wood also as it is water soluble before curing in the air.

Sorry now that I didn't pay the additional costs ourselves to have the Rhino roof sprayed on. So far superior!!!
