Motor home and RV roof repair and maintenance is an essential step in guaranteeing the long life of your investment. Most manufacturers of RVs and motor homes install rubber (EPDM) or TPO roofs on their vehicles because they are lightweight and flexible, while some choose fiberglass or aluminum because they provide a hard surface.

The bottom line is that all RV roofs, left unattended will eventually leak.
