All Tiffin coaches dating back at least 10 years have one piece fiberglass roofs.

Year dependent but our Ď03 Winnebago Adventurer is one piece fiberglass.
We had an Ď82 Georgie Boy Cruise Air that had a metal roof.

Forest River Georgetown's do and maybe other of their models like the Coachmen. Probably their diesel Berkshire as well.

Country Coach used a floating fiberglass roof. I just finished mine, got tired of all the chalking.

I had two Winnebago Journey's with one-piece fiberglass roof as well as my current Newmar Mountain Aire.

I don't think you can just go by the brand name. Some brands vary the roof material by coach models with higher end being fiberglass and lower-end being brite-tek or rubber roofs.

If you're lucky enough to find a "National Class A Motorhome", most of them have fiberglass roofs..
They are not made anymore....
We love ours..

Safari used a Filon / thin floating fiberglass roof, at least on the Trek models until the Monaco buyout in 2001. They then went to Aluminum and then for a while solid fiberglass.



I think Foretravel uses Fiberglass or other similar material on most of their coaches.


Of course there is / was also the Wanderlodge on the bus chassis


Also don't forget Beaver which was owned by Safari

IIRC, our '76 Southwind had an aluminum roof (grin).
