TPO vs. EPDM for roof replacement

I have to replace the roof on my 98 Damon Magnum travel trailer. I have found a pretty good price for TPO on Ebay. I assume this goes on the same as EPDM, that it has to be glued. Is one material better to use or easier to put on than the other?

Not the same as in the material, but the same in the ways you install it. Use the same glue, I use SikaFlex 751 for the sealant, and TPO is cheaper and better.
