Leaky TrailManors

I've been told that sooner or later TrailManors start to leak. True?

Without preventative maintenance, any RV roof will develop leaks. There are many products that can stop or prevent roof leaks.

TrailManor trailers have metal roofs, so you won't have to re-coat them like an EDPM roof. A search of the iRV2 forum shows little consensus that TrailManor is any worse (or better) than any other brand. One advantage to a trailer that lowers for travel is the roof isn't so high you can't see when it needs attention.

I owned a TrailManor and the only problem I had was that the front end of the trailer curves inward, and there is a lip there, and that lip MUST be caulked and maintained or water will get in the front storage area. If it is one of the models that has a little cubbie for the propane tanks, with a cover that screws on, also maintain the seal around that cover. Otherwise it was a great trailer and we loved it.

Had a Trail Manor years ago and it already had several years on it and, it never leaked anywhere. Loved the little thing but just outgrew it.

We had a Trail!anor too, and he only leakage problems were the same things leak as other trailers. Keep the edges caulked well and make sure the openings on the top are well maintained, just like any trailer.

Leaky TrailManors

Thanks to all who replied.
I 'm looking to buy a 2003-7 TMSL. I was concerned about the overlaps. But, no longer.
Thanks again.
