BriteTEK or rubber roof?

Can anyone tell me which roof I have? It's not fiberglass. It's either BriteTEK or rubber. It's very smooth, rather shiny, has a fleece backing and is about 1mm thick. Also it's different from the material used on the slideout roof. 2000 DSDP.

BriteTek.

Newmar used it starting in about 2000 as I remember, our 2000 DSDP had it. Very good product and I (and a lot of others) prefer it over fiberglass. Our 2002 also has it, much quieter than the fiberglass and has a longer warranty too.

Welcome to the forum Rotten-Red.
As Mr-D said you have the Brite-Tek Roof.
Slide out roofs are fiberglass.
Enjoy the forums.

My slideout roof is a rubber material. It's not fiberglass.

Same with ours (all 3) except they are BriteTek also.
