Guys,

We had a major hail storm here in Calgary. My pup roof is severely damaged. I need to rebuild it. What membrane material do you guys use to cover it on the outside? I am in Calgary, Alberta. Where do you buy it?

Thanks.

I did a small repair on an aluminum roof using fiberglass cloth and resin. The same kind that I used on a wooden boat. I imagine it would work to cover the whole roof.

Hi,
I rebuilt my roof on a 2009 Palomino Pony P280 due to Mold and rotten wood on the ends. The old roof had a metal cladding, but it was glued to the rotten wood and I could not save it.
When I rebuilt I used good one side plywood and covered with a roofing membrane from CanadaRV.com out of QC. I wanted to stay with a Canadian company to avoid any trouble with cross border shipping. https://www.canadarv.com/en/shop/exterior/roofing

When rebuilding the 12’ roof on my Coleman bayside elite with aluminum roof. I used a 9.5’x15’ superflex kit from Amazon.
I would just buy the Superflex by itself now cause the kit was $190 when I bought it 3 years ago and it’s over $400 now. I only used 3/4 of 1 bucket of the glue and one tube of sealant.

My roof looked like a minefield after major hail damage. I removed anything surface-mounted, wire brushed it, skim-coated the whole thing with body filler (gold body filler for aluminum), primed it with self-etching primer and painted it with two coats of Upol Raptor bedliner. That was 10 years ago and it's held up extremely well. Were I to do it again, I'd use Gator Guard.

I purchased a 1981 StarCraft Starflyer from craigslist in 2014, the entire roof was rotted away. I rebuilt the roof, and coated all the luan and plywood with a two coats of Monstaliner bed liner. I added a third coat last summer to change the white to an off white becuse I thought it looks better with the tan canvas. It has held up beautifully. The canvas is original, and is starting to dry out and tear easily. As well as my screens are mostly brittle now. It's time for new canvas, or I might just get a newer pup.

Please post pictures! I also have a Starcraft Astrolite '89
I rebuilt the whole roof for less than $300 CAD. Would have been cheaper considering lumber had gone up 3x here in Alberta. My wife kept a close eye on my budget so I had to research for the most affordable membrane to use. I went with the Poor Man's Fiberglass method. For some reasons the website keeps erroring out when I tried to attached some photos.

Mine was WAY more than $300 - I used 3 sheets of plywood and that alone was $300, then the membrane and the glue and ......
