Sounds way high to me?
I think you are throwing good money away with a non standard roof. Get it back to the factory for a new roof.

Hi capt mav. As I mentioned before I had the entire roof replaced at Forest City, IA. My replacement included a complete roof assembly, they take the whole assembly off & install it as a new assembly that is made specifically for your model coach. Fiberglass top/ac ducting/insulation/new headliner/roof ac,s removed & reinstalled/new refrigerator vent/bath & lounge fans & vents removed & reinstalled/new Bat wing. Cost as I remember was $14,000.00. I think it took 3 days but I wanted to leave it cure for 24 hours before I moved it, so it stayed inside for one more day. Matter of fact the photo in my avatar is with the new roof.

I would certainly agree with most of the folks responding to the question....find a way to get the coach to Forest City and let the experts at Winnebago replace the roof. I realize that is certainly an inconvenience but you indicated insurance would be covering the cost. Perhaps they might help with the cost of travel to/from Iowa.

Another option is to talk to Bryan Funke at Winnebago. Bryan has been very helpful to many of us here. I'd ask him if there is any full service Winnebago dealer near you who he would recommend doing a roof replacement. For example, he told me some time ago that Bill Plemmons RV in Winston-Salem, NC could do most any repair they can do at the factory. You can contact him at bfunke@winnebagoind.com.

Good luck.

The dealer is wrong. Have them check part number 108535-05-706. That is a roll 108"wide by 435" long. Winnebago part number and that is in stock at Winnie!

Latest from dealer is that the damaged fiberglass cant be peeled back and off so they are going to repair the areas of damage with fiberglass and then put the Brite Tek roof on top of the glass??? Has anyone heard of this???? Now Im really confused....

Find another service center. These guys seem to have no clue. Get them to remove the fiberglass and replace it with fiberglass, or go somewhere else.

Besides, yopu cannot glue the rubber down to fiberglass, the surface needs to be porous like luan.

Have you checked with the dealers in Rockport, I am thinking Camper Clinic is a
Winnie dealer? Ron Brown is also there, I haven't had any work done there, but a lot of people go there.

Smile problem solved thanks to forest (I think)

Well thanks to forest my repair center now has a new fiberglass roof on order. This is after 3 previous phone calls to Winnebago and being told the roof was no longer made?? But with the part number provided by forest we were able to move forward. Thanks also to Billy for his info.
Once again this forum has provided more info than both the dealers and the manufacturer.....

I think the repair joint was giving you a smoke screen. This is not uncommon for a repair facility to want to do what is easy for them and not what is right for you.
Unless I miss my guess, as an insured repair you are entitled to like kind & quality minus your deductible, period. All the nonsense about other roof types is just that. IIWM, I'd keep my eye on those repair guys and make sure they don't take any more short cuts that are good for them and not so much good for you.

I am glad you decided to go with the new fiberglas. Somehow I just don't think the vinyl or rubber would work well with the Winne product. With a coach that late model, you need to do it right. You will be much happier.

Agreed with the smoke screen. Being as they are not a Winnie dealer, they likely didn't try too hard to get a part number. I made 1 phone call and had the part number in 3 minutes.

Your welcome.
