My old Shadow Cruiser came with EPDM so that is what I put back down. Here is my old thread on fixing mine: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fusea........hread/tid/27761327/srt/pa/pging/1/page/1

biggjb, The existing roof on your 1999 Fleetwood Elkhorn is EPDM, if that was the question. Which for partial replacement I'd stay with same material.
Though only because any other material, caulk etc, would need to be compatible with both if different used.
All the EPDM Ive seen or used is black beyond the white top layer.

Thanks AnEv942. This was part of my concern. I have removed about 8 feet of the front in my repairs and it was very time consuming and difficult to remove the old membrane. A procedure I do not want to do again for the remainder of the camper. My intent, correctly or not, is to replace the membrane I removed and place a strip of EPDM tape over the joint. I was also going to treat the old roof to protect it. I am hoping to get another 5 years out of the camper.

I don't think you will like that decision in another year, I would just pull it all up and put down new on the whole roof, even if you are looking at having it 5 years it will help with resale as well.
