Coachman rebuild

Postby Gary McCusker » Fri Jun 06, 2008 7:05 am

After removing my winter storage cover on my 98 Coachman slide-in camper,I have massive amounts of water damage above and around the cab-over from where I have no concievable clue. I have built several stich and glue boats and was wondering if it's possible to remonve the outer covering and steel sheet roof,then install 1/4" a/c plywood and fiberglass using 6oz. woven cloth.

Didn't coachman put out a video once showing how they built their campers? That might give you an idea of what you are up against. But what you are proposing surely sounds feasible.

I was thinking about your camper & wondered if those fiberglass sheets would be a good thing to use on the roof.

I'm talking about the ones sold at Lowes or Hom depot.
They use them a lot in restrooms on the walls in restaurants, busnessses etc.
It has a pebble finish on one side.I used this stuff for headliner in my sailboat & it's pretty tough,but easy to work with.

You may have to use some sort of that silver roof coat stuff to seal the joints& make it U/V friendly.

Just a thought.
