I had one on a Bounder. It was easy to clean ( Murphy’s oil soap and dawn ) and durable.

I had fiberglass on my last rig (owned for 14 years) and TPO on the current. TPO seems to be very durable so far (going on 6 years). Don't confuse TPO with EPDM. Totally different animal.

I think TPO is excellent. I have a slight preference for fiberglass over TPO, but only very slightly. I'd have no reservations at all with a TPO roof. And yes, I've owned rigs with both types. And also EPDM and even galvanized metal.

Our TPO roof is 10 years old and looks great. I just wash it twice a year and check the caulk around vents & such. Its never been painted with anything.
