The roof on that RV is TPO , not rubber. Here is a commercial application explanation.
You'll be very happy with it as it's easy to clean and maintain.

There are significant differences between the 07 and 08. The 07 is on a regular Freightliner chassis with a Cat C7. IF this vehicle has a DPF ( I think it does) it is the last year that Cat provided any C7's for over the road vehicles. Unlike the 06's this is a problematic vehicle due to the emission system. It is the reason that Cat gave up on selling RV engines. It is my understanding they never did solve the problems. The 08 should have a Cummins. BTW: In 09 the Bounder was built on a custom chassis similar to the American coach Liberty chassis. An amazing chassis for an entry level unit.

Didnt want to hear that. Can you elaborate on the issues? Know of whom I can talk to about this?

Top 30 Complaints and Reviews about Caterpillar

cat c7 - School Bus Fleet Magazine Forums

Cat Acert engines have the DPF system starting in 07. Some 07's may have been built with 06 engines ( no DPF) Although Cummins had no problems with their 07 emission systems Cat did. It is also my understanding that they provide no further updates for this system that does not work. There is or was a large class action lawsuit on that problem. Understand that you can find all kinds of problems online for any engine or RV. But in this case it is not a bunch of whiners but a real problem. Cat had so much trouble they got out of the on highway engine business by 09. Very few RV's had Cat engines in 08. Most went back to Cummins. A real shame that a company with a great reputation put that junk on the market.
