Roof Update 1-2-2014

Thank you to everyone for your input. Here is a status update: On 12-30 we drove the motorhome home to a repair facility recommended by my insurance carrier, Foremost. At 25 mph it was a 2 hour trip! The facility is Discount RV in Lakeside, CA. Any comments or experience with them would be appreciated. They are to get an estimate to me early next week.

My MH has basement air, so I did not lose them in the storm. Besides the roof, we are missing all of the rooftop vents (stove, sewer, etc), 2 air vents with fans and motorized openers, sunlight over the shower, luggage rack, and tv and radio antennas. We have all of the hardware for the awning and it does no look bent.

Since our goal is to keep this MH, I am open to any and all options for a replacement roof, including fiberglass (original), rubber and Rhino-coat. The rhino-coat seems to be new technology and I have seen some bad comments posted to the internet.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support.

What George S said about salvage titles is right on. Be careful what the rules are for your state. We had a 5th wheel that was totaled because a water line busted and ruined the floors, etc. A hunter friend wanted it for his hunting "lodge". Insurance would only sell it back to us on a salvage title, not sell to him. That is when I found out that you cannot drive or tow a salvage title vehicle on Alabama roads, nor can you insure it. The process for getting it changed from salvage to regular title involves a lot of inspections, repairs and dollars in fees. He opted to go ahead so he paid us and we bought it back. He took the chance and got a buddy to haul it to his hunting land (it looked just fine on the outside). It still sits there and that was 2003.

I know a guy that had a Winnebago Class A that had the one piece fiberglass roof blow off the same way yours did. He had it replaced with the EPDM rubber roof for around 7 grand in the Dallas area. Looked good as new when completed. I don't know the name of the outfit that replaced the roof, but I understand there are many out there that do only roof replacements.

Roof update 1/10/2014

We just received insurance approval for replacement of our roof. Cost just over $10k. Repair facility and insurance company recommend epdm over the original fiberglass, mostly due to cost. Your comments are welcome.

If that includes fiberglass and gel coat repair, that sounds fine to me.

SgtSilverman, you already had estimates, didn't you? I didn't think they would total it. Your coach still has lots fun times ahead in it. Get it fixed and GO RV'ING and have years of fun. Without me reading all this again, where are you and where are you planning to get it fixed?

Get it fixed and you will feel much more secure knowing you have a new roof overhead!
