Camper roofs all leak, i don't care how awesome you think you have sealed it up, it’s going to leak. The trouble in my opinion is that they put everything up top and with no consideration for letting water drain, they rely on caulk to stop water going where it naturally wants to. Mine is due for replacement, should have been done last year. I plan to remove the AC, antenna and any other unnecessary penetrations. I have been contemplating replacing with aluminum sheet. I can buy 5x10 16 ga thinking to overhang 2” on the sides and back, bent down with the brake to drain and drip away from The siding. And at the front i can overlap it down the front more than the current roof membrane. Sheets are small enough I should be able to seal under at each screw hole i can use sheet metal roofing screws to aid sealing. Some or my concerns are finding the correct sealant , i want something that will stick to the aluminum without causing it to oxidize and screwing it down heavily enough to stay on on the road but not so much as to have unnecessary penetration. am i way off base here? Am I missing something that would work better?
