This type of themed mural used to be quite common on the Safari coaches. Sometime in the mid 90s we stopped by Lazydays in Florida and saw an artist/muralist doing one on the back of a new coach.

I wonder if you could attach some aluminum angle across the top edge of the plywood rafters contouring to any arch in them,screwing or bolting them on to the face of the rafter togive you a firm secure surface to screw your new roof material into. Just an Idea.

After most of the day I've finally got all the fiberglass rollover off - ended up cutting both sides in 4 pcs.

Got plywood yesterday - 3/4" 10 ply for replacing bad ribs and 3/8" ac ply for decking - hope I get to remove enough old tomorrow to make a template to cut replacement ribs - hope to have several already cut when I take old plywood off next weekend

Thanks for the input - thinking if I double ribs at joints in plywood I can use screws instead of staples - won't really know till I get opened up but I like how you think- Pabell

The dealerships probably didn't order in stock with the factory option, Letterfly was able to add it after the fact.

We redid the roof on our unit and put down 1/4 inch fir plywood then dicor EPDM.
I wish I would have put on the spray on that is similar to the coating that they use as lining the inside of pickup boxes.
This product is life time guaranteed and have seen it and is very durable and comes in different colors.

Thanks pops2,

I have seen rhino video and would agree this is a better method but the old girl needs more work before I'd consider her road worthy and the nearest place to get it done probably over 100 miles away.

Did manage to get my template cut out this afternoon for replacement ribs

Made wire pass thru notches no bigger than necessary - factory notches were larger than needed and seems to be main point of failure - also will be beefed up @ both A/C units somehow.

Jerry (?) Dane also did the Safari factory murals. We sat around at a 2013 rally and watched him add a mural to an existing coach using an airbrush. Freehand and Fascinating. He hides little images within the main mural. Ours has 4 that I can find.

I'm ready to order EPDM roofing - I was planning to go with a dove grey but have found it in white over 400.00 cheaper than priced from Camping World. ( both are Dicon) The company is in Texas called PPL Motor Homes - didn't see them listed in vendors list and was wondering if anyone has dealt with them before - on sale thru 6/26/15

Thought I might post a picture of my truck just to show I've always had a passion for things vintage. It's a 1966 chevy that I've owned about 15 yrs. - it has a 396 w turbo 400 trans - it's a blast to drive TOO MANY TOYS
