Roof Recoating

Hello Fellow RVer's
My husband and I have been fulltime in our 40 ft 2006 Holiday Rambler for about 3 years and love it.
I have recently noticed that our roof on our motorhome seems to be getting thin and is starting to bubble above the entry door.
Has anyone had this issue and how did you fix it?
Has anyone had their roof recoated and if so who would you recommend?
If you did it yourself what would you recommend?
Any suggestions on how we can maintain our roof so it last another 10 years?
Would love to hear what others have done!!

Getting thin? It's a fiberglass roof, so ought not to wear or erode and the only coating it should ever need is a paint job to brighten it up again. Could you explain (or post photos) about the "bubbling"?

Also, what model HR coach is it?

Yeah Gary had a good idea. I never heard of a fiberglass roof "bubbling." So My question is, how much do you want to spend?

It's an Ambassador and my understanding is they have a rubber membrane on top of the fiberglass. That is what I was told if it is just fiberglass. It would be great to know what to us to repaint it.
The bubble is an air bubble near the seam over the door. Revgroup said it looks like it lifted. I was told that glue could be used to put it down again.
