Stop the madness...and the leaks
Hi all, new to forum. Picked up a 1968 18'+/- Norris travel trailer with metal roof and my first order of business is to stop the roof leaks. Did a lot of research, probably too much, on this forum and elsewhere, and I think I have settled on Liquid Roof as the way to go. So... I came up with this plan:
1. Replace sagging wood ceiling joists to restore crown in portion of roof
2. Clean, scrape, sand off existing coating that is peeling
3. Eternabond webseal seams in metal roof that run across width of trailer
4. Install 2 new roof vents, frig vent and bath vent with new butyl tape kits
5. Webseal flanges of new vents
6. Apply Liquid Roof EPDM coating to entire roof
Guess I should look at edges too and replace butyl tape as needed under trim. Or can I use an epdm compatible caulk to seal edge trim to roof?
Am I creating a problem for myself down the road by applying webseal & liquid roof over flanges and up to edge trim? Is that overkill? Should I install vents/edges after rubber roof is down and rely on butyl tape?
Not going to keep camper forever, but hoping to do the job once.
If I could figure out how to post a pic, I would.
Any critiques, comments or other recommendations are greatly appreciated.
Ain't she a beaut? 1968 Norris Consul II (I think). Bringing her back!
