Hi everyone, I had an RV that was in great shape... except for one major problem, leaking, rotted roof. I went to a bunch of places to get prices and it ranged from $3,000-$4,000. I could by another trailer for that much, anyway, I decided to do it myself and video tape it to help anyone else that might need to do the same thing. I hope this video helps someone out, if so, leave me a comment so I dont feel like my work was in vain.. take care and good luck

We noticed the dripping during a hard and steady rain and after further inspection, realized it had been leaking for some time. There was evidence the previous owner had tried to recaulk the seam on more than one occasion.
Too late for us, the water sitting inside the roof had taken its toll.
