roof replacement

wish I was posting a lot of pictures of how I repaired/replaced the roof on my 34' Georgie Boy.

In reality we are just at the "Thinking about it" stage.

We know we have some roof damage in the far back passenger side. the roof is soft and there is some damage to the bedroom ceiling.

In the past I bookmarked some awesome websites/pages of DIY'er who did there roofs.

Unfortunately i have lost the links. Anyone got any good links to point us in the right direction for when we tackle this?

Take a look at the summary of our RV roof project.

that was one of the sites I was recently looking at. The moulding that covers the edge of your rubber roof--were you able to re-use yours or did you replace?

who did you use to source your materials?

All the trim & edging was reused. A fair amount of time was needed to clean the old stuff off of them, but they were reused. The docs on the webpage summarize where the materials came from Tweetys for the roof material, cement, and edge putty. I got extra putty for the vents, etc. from them too. Our local lumber yard supplied the luan & the panel glue to hold it down. Our local RV parts wholesaler suppied the AC gaskets and new vents. Also in the docs on the webpage are links to others that did the same job before me that I used as reference.

It's not a hard job, just lots of hours. If I were to do it again, I'd find a location with a roof over it. We had a wet summer that year which severly limited our desired progress.
