    Roof repairs and interior makeover

    The restoration of the exterior is 99.9 % restored. Replaced the rotted out side boards and repaired the water damage on the interior. Used Henry’s for the roof and painted the bottom walls. Interior cabinets and walls have also been painted, just need to install the new flooring.

    LEAKING ROOF REBUILD! New Rockwood PopUp Camper Leaking EVERYWHERE!

    At the end of last year, I could see places on the roof that were leaking. Wood was getting wet and damaged. I wasn't surprised. This new Rockwood 2280bhesp had already proven to be assembled in a sloppy rush. And since I did not have good experiences with previous service visits, I decided to...

    Roof Repair with Self-Adhering TPO?

    I am finally starting to think about planning to get around to repairing my ABS roof. It does not leak - yet - but it looks pretty bad, and it is only a matter of time. I have read all the threads about this, and I don't really like any of the solutions. Too much work, nasty chemical, etc. etc...

    Restoring a NEW 2280bhesp

    We bought our 2019 2280bhesp two summers ago. We truly enjoy it but it has terrible assembly quality. The snow finally melted, the popup is out of storage, and I am beginning a roof-rebuild project. Numerous points where the factory caulk has failed and we have numerous leaks. All hardware is...

    Alumitite roof repair

    Alumitite disaster! We were going to tackle the roof ourselves but then because I suddenly found myself homeschooling 3 kiddos (thanks covid-19) . We ended up hiring someone we THOUGHT was reputable. He is actually an RV tech but apparently pop up campers are small potatoes for those guys. He...

    Roof Back End Cap White Mold

    Greetings! Today and we discovered this wood rotting white mold on the back end roof cap. We stored it in the garage and I'm surprised it's this bad (there's a velcro strip in the picture). I noticed it last year when we pulled it out of the garage but it wasn't too bad, just some shredded...

    Viking Roof Side Replacement

    Hi everyone- Im new around here. A few year back I came into a 2003 Viking Saga 2308. Last season, I noticed the front right roof side wall was getting soft. When I started digging at it, I tore up the wall pretty good and am looking to replace it. I think a 2"x12"x16' piece of PT can be...

    What is my roof made of?

    Hi! I want to reseal the roof on my 1988 Starcraft Astrolite that I just purchased but my research shows there are different materials these pop up roofs are made of. Does anyone know what mine should be made of, does it matter? I am leaning toward a rubber sealant. I am in Ontario Canada and...

    1995 Starcraft: how to start on roof?

    We bought a bit too hastily a water damaged 1995 Starcraft (classic, I know....). Taking advantage of social isolation and digging in, making it better than ever. Currently gutting the floor, and know we will need to bring the roof down and make some roof repairs. Attached are some pics of the...
