Boat Wrench -

Good question! What model Dutch Star do you have? What year is it? You may want to add a "signature" line with that type of information to help others know what you have.

This is what my local RV shop uses which I ordered from Amazon. It is a PVC roof material and the shop highly recommended it. I have all materials on hand to but waiting for better weather to install. I ordered with the installation kit also. Supposedly no streaks/stains with a 12 year warranty and was told the life expectancy is 20 years. Had to call the factory to get the thickness which I was told is 27 mils. Also repairs are simple, save some scrap material and repair with PVC glue.

Good luck

I have done 2 of these... helped friends... in each case we upgraded and installed 45 mil... that's .045" thick... Its my personal opinion that these products are all the same except for the thickness... which I perceive as how you qualify quality... it is available up to 60 mil which I've never installed...

I've noticed that most large commercial buildings (las vegas casinos) have EPDM roofs that are seamed, glued down and last up to 20 years..

In both the cases I helped with... the failure was either tree damage or the quality of the factory to install it correctly.... cuts around AC, vents... etc... they just got in a hurry and short changed the customer/rv
