New here

DW and I picked up our first camper. 2005 Fourwinds Majestic M-28R.
Not a beauty, and kind of plain, but awesome for a first timer.... dealer said handy-man special... incredible price... turns out there was a roof leak with some rot in 3 places... about 2 x 2 area off the corner of the skylight, about 2 x 2 area near one of the roof rail braces, and about 6" wide all the way across the front... dealer providing the replacement rubber at no cost... purchased balance of materials for approx. $250.00. definitely an undertaking... all vents and covers removed... seal strips at front and rear caps removed... old lap seal removed from both front and rear caps... all rubber removed except 3" down both sides... awning ready to removed (slid it out about a foot, then back into place till tomorrow), AC dismantled inside, ready to lift off tomorrow... once awning is off, will remove both side strips and last of the rubber...

In my opinion- this one. I think there is a travel trailer forum on this site too. Collectively you'll have access to hundreds of years of rv experience among all of us.

Welcome and good luck with your trailer!
