would this be commiting roof sucide? I want to carry our canoe on the top of the RV. It has an EDM rubber roof. I expect I could use a standard mount affair but that's a bolt on thing and requires drilling holes.
Beyond that. even if I was able to seal any holes I drilled...what about wear caused by walking and banging various canoe things on the roof? How fragile are they?

Kinda lost on how to move a 15' canoe using an RV.

......get the foam canoe mounts and use the large binders -side to side and front to rear- to hold the canoe down....put plastic bags under the foam blocks so they slide some but not alot...will work on rubber roofs very well....saw a guy that used a piece of carpet padding and had a canoe full of water when he got home-but it didn't leave a mark on the rubber...geof kaye

Don't worry about wear from walking on the roof - normal foot traffic won't bother EDPM a bit. It's just sharp edges and continuous wear points that are a concern.

I used to carry a Port-A-Bote on a roof rack I constructed for it. Used it on two Rvs (one 5W, one MH) without a problem. A Port-A-Bote isn't heavy - only about 60 Lbs plus the oars I had strapped on with it - so my rack was 2x2 cross pieces sitting on 2x4 blocks at each end. Those I attached to the roof with lag screws and caulked well. When I removed the rack, I merely reseated short lag screws in the holes and caulked over it, basically leaving a rounded nubbin of caulk. A good rubber roof caulk/sealer like C10 FLo Seal did the job nicely.

Those caulked bolt heads are no worse than any of the other dozens of protruding screws and bolts holding things onto your roof.
