Check the brochure. It’s been a couple years but it seems to me they had some build specs in the brochure a couple years ago.

The 192 is my favourite floor plan from freedom express. We needed to go smaller so we went with a Teardrop. But the 192 was on our short list.

Best of luck and happy travels.

Looks like typical travel trailer construction from the manufacturers brochure.

Typical RV roofs are taller in the middle and around 3"-4" thick at the center and the ends will be about 2" or so at the sidewall ends.. This is done to shed water and snow.

Looks like it has roof A/C and skylight, if you can look at one in person, measure the depth of the skylight. That will give your the thickness in the center, the thickness will taper down to about half that at the sidewalls.

Since it has roof A/C, it must be able to support that so if you need to get on the roof for maintenance, it should be sturdy enough for that. But since it is a "Ultra lite" RV, be very aware that may corners have been cut to reduce the weight.. Some cut corners are obvious and some not so obvious.

Hey! Thank you for all the replies!! I need to know the thickness of the wood on the roof as we are installing solar panels and we need to know how long of a screw to buy. :-)

Thanks!!!

Remove the interior trim on a roof vent or skylight. You should be able to see the plywood.
Most likely it’s 3/8”.

Km, well worth the effort. You will love a solar system! Don't "skimp" on wire size since it is so easy to add more panels if the wiring is adequate.
