Replacing a Rubber Roof With a Metal Roof on a Fifth Wheel Travel Trailer

(Tahlequah, OK)

Question: I am looking at buy a 1992 prowler fifth wheel travel trailer. It had a rubber roof on it but it got damaged by being pulled under a tree limb. The person put plywood down on top of the rubber roof and sealed it down. but it still leaked in the front. I want to know if I pull the rubber roof off and if I could replace it with a metal roof.

Robbie: Without looking at the unit and how the rubber is laid it is hard for me to be accurate with an answer, but yes it can be done. However, I don’t advise it. It would be more cost effective and require half the time in labor to remove the old rubber roof and the wood patch and lay new rubber. You cannot lay a new rubber roof over the old rubber because it won’t stick. I’ve seen it done and turned out to be a real mess.
