This coach below is a 1997 Gulfstream. It had
a EPDM rubber roof membrane that was at the
end of its life span . We removed the the old
EPDM rubber . Repaired the wood damage
and glued on Docor's Britek roofing system.
Follow this link for our customers testimonial
|We start out by removing
everything off the roof
|On this roof we used 1/4 inch
Ply to overlay to provide a solid
and smooth sub-structure to
glue the TPO.
|rolling out the new
roofing material onto
fresh glue adhering it to
our smooth surface
|This is the completed roof.
We use Dicor roofing
systems on all our roofs
These photos below giude you thruogh our process of removing
and old EPDM rubber roof and installing a new Dicor TPO roof
Most motor homes and trailers come factory equipped with EPDM rubber roofing. They can last up to about 15 to 20 years before they naturally beak down turn black.
At this point in time there is really only one correct way to deal with it. That is to remove and replaced it with with a new one piece roofing Material this can be
expensive but well worth it. It is required to keep your roof from water intrusion before your investment is completely ruined water can soak in through the pours of the
old rubber damaging the wood below. As well as the siding and even the flooring. I have personally seen hundreds of RV with leaky roofs. It is important to inspect
your sealant around all your vents and front and rear caps every year to make sure that there are not any voids or cracks in the sealant.
Buyer beware there are a lot of scams going on right now with blanket coating, These liquid coating are a big waist of money especially if your unit is 10 years or older.
First off, applying a product over a damaged product can not last. The sun will bake it right off. If your RV rubber roof is newer and in great shape it might stick a bit
longer, I have personally heard from countless RV owners how they have spent 1000 to 1500 hundred dollars on these products only to call us
with roof leak issues, The only thing we can do to make it right is to remove the old epdm material completely off the RV and roll out a new one piece of material. Then
you will be leak free fro 20 to 30 years . Please call for a free rubber roof replacement estimate 619-889-5429

RV Expert Tips for your RV awning
|Specializing only in :
RV Awnings - Fabric replacement
Rubber roof replacements
|RV awnings come in many different sizes and colors. The most popular
awning out there is a Dometic 8500 series. This awning is on about
half of all RV's. This is a very strong and durable awning. Dometic
usually will use a vinyl canvas. It can last up to about 10 years but
normally only 7 due to the amount of sun we get down here in
After each rain it is a good idea to open up your awning and let it dry
out. If you don not mildew will start appearing on your awning and dirt
will stick to the mildew witch is very hard to clean off.
Never have your awning out in high winds or heavy rains. The wind
can rip and bend your awning. Also heavy rains can collapsed you RV
awning due to the weight of water.
We have installed thousands of RV awnings. We service all of San
Diego County. RV Expert stocks most vinyl canvas's and sizes

"Solid Business. Solid work. Solid Guy I have a 1989 Bounder motorhome with
a nightmare of a roof leak. I tried and tried to fix it with no luck. Called around
a few places and was getting insane price quotes for a roof replacement. It's a
hard decision to make when it comes to replacing the whole roof an an old
motorhome. After talking to Jim we felt more comfortable replacing it. He gave
us a no BS price quote that was far cheaper than his competitors and
guarantee no surprise charges".

Tip 1: Decide Whether to Buy or Rent
This isn't always an easy decision, with pros and cons for both. However, when you consider a few key factors, the answer becomes
Buy: You plan to go RV camping often or full-time and you have storage for the times when you aren't traveling. Rent: You plan to go
on a single trip, or want to test the waters before making a purchase.Tip 2: Get to Know Your RV
With little road experience, it's especially important that RV beginners take time to learn how the motorhome works, even if it's just a
rental. If something breaks, you should be able to assess the problem, and potentially fix it. This saves time and money spent at a
When you get to know your RV, you're less likely to make operational errors. For example, if you don't know how many amps your main
breaker can handle, there's a good chance you'll blow it. This is a potentially expensive error that can be avoided by getting to know
Tip 3: Take a Practice Drive
Consider the roads you plan to drive on, and take a smaller trip on similar terrain. As an RV beginner you don't yet know what will move
around in the living area or how hard it will be to switch lanes, ascend hills, and park.
Once you know the intricacies of driving an RV, you can make necessary adjustments. For example, if your drawers pop open, which
they often do, you need to find a way to keep them shut.
Tip 4: Bring Tools and Spare Parts
Pack a well-stocked tool kit, and add in the things that your RV might need, like extra fuses, light bulbs, jumper cables, nuts, bolts and
connectors. In addition, be sure to bring parts that are unique to your rig. Without these, you risk having to wait for the part to be
ordered and shipped.
Tip 5: Don't Wing It
The urge to be spontaneous is tempting when your home is on wheels. : "There's a certain pleasure in going where you want, when
you want." Still, they recommend you have a plan: "It does help, however, to have a solid plan in place if it's your first time planning an
When RVing, plan:
The budget: How much you can allocate for food, fun and overnight stays.Your food supply: To buy and eat out.The route: The one
you plan to take and alternate options.Stops: The places you want to see along the way.Campgrounds: Where along the route you
plan to call it a night.
Tip 6: Create a Campground Setup Checklist
As an RV beginner, you might not have a campground routine yet. Therefore, having a checklist will ensure everything is set up as it
should be. You checklist should include:
Check the site for low hanging branches or obstacles on the ground. Locate the electrical, water and sewage hookups. Pull your RV in,
close to the hookups, and level it with blocks or stabilizing jacks, if necessary.Secure your rig by chocking the wheels.Connect to the
electrical hookup, and switch your appliances to pull from this source of power, instead of the battery or propane. Attach your sewer
hose to the drain hook-up—be sure to wear gloves for this process.Put out your awning and set up the campsite.
RV beginners have a lot to look forward to: RVing is a great way to travel and explore the outdoors. However, knowing the basics is
important to having a stress-free trip.
