    Has anyone ever repaired a tear in a rubber roof. I have a friend that riped his with a limb on the top edge. Its about 8 ft long and he wants me to try and help him fix it. Can you just patch a rip this long or should the whole roof be replaced. Thanks

    I have repaired a 4 inch rip in a rubber roof. You can get a repair kit from
    Camping World. The repair was successful but it discolored after a month. It does not look good but it worked.

    Thanks Lee,
    I just returned from repairing the ripped roof! The one I was working on had a 15ft rip right on the top coner. I ordered a strip of rubber roof a foot wide and 15 ft long. I cut the old rip out and replaced it with the strip of rubber roof and then taped over the overlap seams with Butly tape. Not a professional job but, saved my friend 800 bucks that was quoted for repair. Total cost around 130 bucks. Had to buy a 100 ft roll of tape at .90ft and only used about 17ft but now we have some extra roof meterial and tape for future use.
    Thanks again

    James,
    Is this the same material they spray in truck beds? How do you apply it? Most everything you buy for rvs is expensive such as the tape I had to buy at .90 per ft. Not bad for 15ft but had to purchase a 100 ft roll! Thanks

    Yes it's the sprayed on bed liner. You'll have to contact a rhino franchise.(Yellow Pages). You can find infro.at www.rhynolining.com . Luck with your problem. James

    James,
    There is a rhino dealer about 5 miles from where I live. Since I have already repaired this rip I will file the rhino repair in memory, well maybe I had better write it down, for future use. I will post later if the patch works. My frind left Thursday for Gulf Shores,al and it has been raining ever since so he will give it a good test. Thanks
