Did they say why they denied it? 70-80 mph winds is equivalent of what you would see driving into a headwind!
Ide like to know the reasoning for the denial.

What if the windstorm decided not to blow at the front of the trailer? I don't know how well RV roofs take 70 mph winds from the side or rear, especially when aged a bit.


Generally, direction shouldn't impact a roof in good repair.

"Aged a bit" translates in insurance talk to you didn't keep up on required maintenance. I would recommend against using such talk when the adjuster comes by as it's likely to go into his report as lack of maintenance.

If the roof had no rot, there were no leaks then how can they determine it wasn't maintained properly? Where in the owners manual does it say that you need to replace the roof at 11 years old. And IIRC a fiberglass roof has a longer life than 11 years.

There have been a number of posts on here of the FG roofs like your MH coming off. They are not attached with with screws and a metal strip like a rubber roof only adhesive caulking that has to be maintained. You will be happy with your new roof.
