Spring???.Here in Roch tonight it is (yes) snowing.Spring-sure could fool me.I need 50 degree temps all the time to seal the roof and no rain.

Ok,here's the deal.One of the limiting factors of me going ahead with resealing the roof of "Baby" is a skylight over the shower that I want to add.I found the shower head room a little short.So I thought I found a company the could supply me with one,but on the 11th hr I found out the do not offer a flashing or curbside.(well no framing)I have to be smart about this because the roof is only alumuin and doesn't have any wooden studs.It used square aluminium tube for roof bows.Seems that would be kind of thin to mount anything to it.



Well I went to visit the RV where it is stored and was feeling badly because of the lack of progress I have made on this project.I have a RV repair store near my place and had driven pass it a number of times.I thought I would just stop in to see what they would want to reseal the roof for me.While I was there I asked them about the skylight.They showed me one that is a bubble on the outside and one on the inside that just screwed to the roof and is sealed.I told them I have put a lot of work striping off the ceiling and didn't want to risk any other leaks.They said they have been doing this for thirty yrs and I wouldn't have leaking issues.Seems to me the roof flexes a lot and s skylight without framing or a curbside would in the long run leak.

Your input????.

Thanks,

Gary

Thats what is on mine and it has stayed there so far.. It also gives you enough of a lip to use rubber roof later on if you want. Mine was super easy to install so yeah i would go or it!! Dan.

The roof has a frame. The skylight has its own. The skylight fits right into the hole and has a lip of two inches to screw into the roof. With the EDPM all you do is run a bead around the skylight and screw it down into the roof.
