Roof Type on 1984 Ford Coachman

by William Hines
(Marion NC)

Question: I'm not sure when they came out with a rubber roof . The insurance adjuster said it came from the factory with a rubber roof , but it looks and feels like metal. If you could please help.

Robbie: "If it looks like metal and feels like metal it probably is metal. It will be the only type of RV roof that has anything close to a shiny silver metallic look."

This quote is from a page on this website to help you figure out what type of roof your RV has. Check it out here to read everything you should need to answer your question. If you are still not sure you can post a picture and I could tell you myself.
