I’m in Florida & the sun/weather has been brutal on my trailer.

Does anyone have a recommendation on which roll-on paint / sealer is best to use on this model Jayco (2007 Eagle TT)

Also, what type of material did they use in 2007 when they made this trailer roof?

Thank you in advance,
Kimberly

PS- The PO painted the roof once a year. I’ve owned it for 5 years and have only cleaned the roof and used a roll-on clear sealer. I have 2 areas in the bedroom where water / moister intrusion is evident. I do not see any damage or holes on the roof in the vicinity of the apparent intrusion.

Most RV used a type of rubber roofing called EPDM. Based on your RVs age (over 10 years old) and because you have evidence of leaks, it is time for a complete tear off, inspect, replacement of any rot, new decking and roof.

Re-coating annually is not necessary, even in places with a lot of UV. What should be done is wash the roof and apply a good UV protectant, like 303 Protectant, twice a year.

Climb up on the roof and walk it slowly, feeling for any soft spots. You don't need to rip everything off. Even if you had to replace a 2'x2' section of roof sheeting and roofing rubber, that can be done, if you are up to the task. I use Heng's rubber roof coating, as do most guys here that do their own maintenance. There are a ton of YouTube videos on how to do all this work, saving yourself thousands of dollars....
