What kind of coating is this?

I thought fiberglass roofs were smooth; I was on the roof of a Georgetown 350DS which is supposed to have a fiberglass roof, and also a 2004 Gulf Stream 8937, again supposed to have a fiberglass roof.

The roof on both looked like this:

Is this some sort of coating over the fiberglass so they don't have to paint it or is it not really fiberglass?

Seems like it would be a pain to clean if tree sap or just plain old dirt collects on it.

Yes this is fiberglass. It has ridges and yes these do collect dirt, etc. However it is on top and is usually not seen from the ground. I had the same roof on my 95 airstream and never had a problem with it.

Great - just making sure it wasn't some sort of hybrid that the manufacturers were claiming was fiberglass, but really wasn't.

My 1994 Itasca Suncruiser roof looked just like your photo. It was fiberglass. I think what you see is the texturing in the fiberglass for a more non-slip surface.
