Good info here: http://www.bestmaterials.com/PDF_Fil...eplacement.pdf

Best materials is also a good source for eternabond tape.

Thanks for the info. Sorry didn't get back sooner. Was a buy weekend.

Re-wooded and EPDM on rv. Used fiberglass drywall joint tape, since nothing else was available.

EDPM is quite a trick to get down smooth. A few creases, but not bad. At least it is waterproof now!

Actually 2nd time around. Older (1989) rv. We used to live in it.

Several years back we tore the roof and sides off, put new luan on the sides, re-built the back wall and re-attached the fiberglass siding. Roof was re-built adding an 1 1/2" rise in the center, making a curved roof to create drainage when rv is setting level. New 7/16" OSB and then a painted-on rubber coating.

Wanted EPDM, but local supplier led me to believe they had white when they actually only had black. We were on a fixed cost/time table. Last to buy/install was EPDM. They "sold" me on the paint-on rubber coating. It worked for several years, but started to leak sporadically, changing leak locations and severity.

We upgraded to newer rv. Son is now living in it. He is re-doing the bedroom layout.

This go-around was simpler. Parked next to garage. We removed a/c's and vents (setting a/c's on the garage roof). Pulled gutters off.

New 1/4" hardboard (masonite) down over old rubber/paint, edges sanded round and smooth. Fiberglass drywall joint tape on wood joints. New 45mil EPDM (50' long x 10' wide, black) rolled out, cut long and glued down. Excess foot hanging over the sides, front and rear.

10 hours on Saturday and 16 hours on Sunday (finished at 2:00 am).

Front a/c is back on and running. Bath and frig vents in place. Butyl under and Eternabond tape over. Tank vent covers on. Rear a/c off until bedroom is finished.

Tomorrow evening we will butyl/rubber/butyl/gutter the edges down and trim off the excess.

Keep the pics going. It looks like you are doing great. Will the roof remain black or are you going to put something else on it or paint it?

Got the sides, front and rear screwed down last night.
Butyl, EPDM, butyl, gutter. Went really well.
Still need to caulk the front hold-down cover strip.
Trimmed all around, but left "sideburns" at the rear corners to go under the rear corner cover strips.

We are going to leave it black for now. A lot of the new RV's are using black roofs now. Will give it a try.

It has been in the 80's for several days since the EPDM went on. 1st day there was no a/c's installed. It got warm inside, but not excessively hot.

If we decide it is getting too hot, we can coat it with white sealer in the furure.

Here is a picture after it got it's hair cut!
