Hi
Could you share a ballpark cost?
This looks like a good system and my Tradewinds is a 1999, so a new roof is probably in my future. The cost should be pretty close to your Tropical.

Thanks Dick

Hello Theberrys.

My rig is a 1999 TropiCal 38 ft.gasser..as far as the price of the roof it may not apply to yours at all... I had to have the roof stripped and re decked before they could put the Rv Armor on it..So the cost was higher than normal..Mine was damaged by some storms here and the insurance company wanted it to be like new when they finished...that being said it is close to $9,000.00 dollars. Now bear in mind that now my rig is worth a lot more now,,,,and DW and I have no interest in selling or trading it at any time...Did I forget to mention that the warranty is transferable? I could of had a regular rubber roof put on but the warranty is just not that great.. Best thing to do is when you get ready call Hal @ Rv Armor and just talk to him.. Here at the park I am in we have everyone stopping by just to look at it,,,, and I must say they are all impressed with it.. I hope this helps

Rv Armor Roof Job

There's a very detailed, informative review posted by an IRV2 member Gadget Man in May 2015 about the RV Armor installation on his coach.

After reading the review, I contacted RV Armor and talked to Dave Hamilton (440-334-8142) and asked for more info, price quote and in turn he asked for information on my coach.

With the good reviews, fair pricing, I had them schedule to get it done and they will start the project tomorrow. Once it's completed (in about 2-3 days), I'll gladly post a review on the outcome.

Why would you need a new roof - you never go anywhere?

I would also like to know what (ballpark) it is going to cost you... It looks very well done on their website. I'm sure you will be happy with it....

Thanks for you time...

It's really heartwarming to have friends that imitate Don Rickles

You know very well why I don't leave my house very much. What I fail to understand is why you would take such a cheap shot at the fact I have PTSD.

Back in 2014 I talked with Hal and he told me they charge $115 per linear foot. My rig is 32', so $3680 which includes warranty.

Thanks... $115.00 per foot would be about $4600.00 for my 40 foot rig. That's about what I thought it would be.
Expensive but if you never had to worry about leaks or maintenance again, (except washing), it would probably be worth it. Especially if you planned to keep the rig for a long time.

new roof

i had a new roof put on a couple of years ago. after researching quite a few
rv roofing companies and getting price quotations. i decided to call and
talk to my rv insurance company claims adjuster.

after talking to him and telling him about my leaking rubber roof and how
many times i tried to patch and repair it but it still leaked no matter what?

He recommended that i take it to San Diego RV and have Frank put on a
new Rhino roof. made appointment and took it in an had him put the new
rhino roof on. this was the best thing i have ever done to my rv.

He sprayed the roof and gave me a lifetime warranty in writing on the new roof. it looks and performs perfectly.

after seeing and learning the process he assured me it will never ever leak
again and i will be very happy. he was absolutely correct. he is also a
very nice man and very knowledgeable.

i highly recommend his company and his staff. they are experts and have
been in business for many years.

after getting a quote of over $9000 for a new rubber roof with only a ten year warranty it was a no brainer to get the rhino roof for $4500 with a
lifetime warranty.

if you are not familiar with the rhino process, it is the same stuff that they
use to do truck bed liners. they just spray it on hot and when it dries it is
absolutely water resistant and is pretty thick. a great product and i am
very surprised that the rv companies dont start using this product for their
roofs on all rv's as it is far superior and better warranty than a standard
rubber roof and also at a cheaper cost factor.

new roof

just wanted to add that the price of my new rhino roof included cleaning and
preparing the old roof to accept the application of the new rhino roof.

this process usually takes about three days therefore leaving your rv at their
facility is necessary. you better call them and make your reservation for
your new rhino roof early as they fill up very fast. we met rvs from all over
the country coming in to get a new rhino roof installed. they have the
process down to a science. they clean and scrape and prepare your old
roof on your first day and spray your new rhino roof the second day.

they only can spray about 4 or 5 motorhomes a day so it pays to get on
their list as early as possible. they also give you a choice of colors and
explain the whole process to u so u know what to expect and and how te
job wll look.

its sure is a amazing process and the whole staff are so knowledgeable
and professional. i asked lots of questions and liked their answers.

what i recommend is that you drop your rv off at their location and leave it
for the 3 days and rent a car and make a little mini vacation out of it.

we drove to san diego and stayed their for the 3 days and had fun going
to the san diego zoo one day and exploring the old hotel del coronado on
coronado island the next day. a really fun trip and a great experience.

They will call you and let u know when your motorhome is ready to pick up.

i highly recommend san diego rv. they have excellent ratings and are
first class.

when we did our 32 foot seaview the total cost was about $4500. but that
was a few years ago. the price may have gone up a little bit? better call
them and they will give you a quote and answer any questions or concerns.

Well mr. seaview I am glad that you are so pleased with your Rhino roof job....but it sounds like you are either a salesman for them or you get a commission from them... I started this post just for the people wanting info on the RV Armor process....please stay on point.......I could also post a novel on here about how great they did and how great the product is but the truth of the matter is each and every person and roof repair is different...but I am not the one that had to drive across the country to get the job done....and then stay in a motel for 3 days... .
