I now have a TPO roof and am happy with it. In a heavy rain, TPO is quieter than a fiberglass roof. I think you'll be happy with either one.

Most coach manufacturers have switched to TPO roofing material as opposed to EPDM. Much tougher than EPDM, nither of which contain rubber, they are synthetics.

Rubber covered roofs require a lot maintenance. Very expensive to replace. Why bother with the liability of a rubber roof? I purposely bought a Winnebago ( one piece fiber glass) product to get away from it. I had a Fleetwood before.

Then again its what one can afford. And perhaps one can live with a rubber roof if the price is more than fair on the RV one is buying. Just my experience.
