Default Why do RVs have holes in their roofs?

I spent most of today repairing a couple of leaks on the roof of my RV and sealing the seams on the roof. The leaks were from the stupid skylights which shouldn't be there anyway. Who needs the frigging skylights when there are Windows. Besides, I like it dark when I'm sleeping. Also, why is the AC on the roof? It should be located on the sides. This has been going on for decades. There should never be designed holes in the roof. Okay, rant over.

Maybe you should start your own RV company and start the new trend.

On a serious note, A/Cs if on the sides would stick out further than the 8' width of a trailer. Not sure if you can be any wider without permits.

Seams are part of maintenance on a trailer. If you don't maintain them, you will get leaks. Maintenance is easy. I do it in the cooler months and it isn't that bad.

Pretty sure the owners manual says to check and maintain the sealant and weather stripping yearly...

I replaced the top on my lease rv a couple years ago and covered up most of the openings. I was thinking the same thing you were the whole time i was working on it. A/c and refrig vent is all i left.

AC would have to be in the front or rear but to me that would be OK. Skylights are not needed. And I agree. Seams on the corners could be rolled over and done 2-3 inches down the sides.

They make them like crap. I stayed in one for 7 months that was brand new and the both slides leaked. Pure junk unless restore One that is 40 years old.

Glen, I agree completely with this. I was doing my repairs and it was the unwanted cheap plastic skylights that were leaking because the UV were breaking them down. I replaced them five years ago. Yesterday, I replaced two of the three with painted wood board screwed into the metal bar on the opener. Again, there should be no holes designed in the roof, it is a major flaw. All vents and AC should be located somewhere else. My leaks were unusually high due to the 30+ inches of rain we got after the 4th.

An airstream will leak just like the others if neglected.

My camper (not airstream) is a 2006 model and I recently had a new roof membrane installed. To my knowledge the one on it was original. When the old membrane was taken off all the wood under it was solid, almost pristine. There were a couple of areas that had gotten we at some point but there was no rot anywhere. I know this camper had been used by a full timer that was partially disabled as well.

As mentioned previously maintenance is the key.

Mine lives inside 95% of the time. I'm hoping that helps. As for the skylight, some people are actually tall enough to put their head in one when taking a shower

I have a 2019 Keystone HideOut, 175LHS that has the AC installed (at the factory) in the side of the unit. Works great and it doesn’t stick out outside but a couple inches. The inside unit is in a cabinet. Search the model unit on google for pictures.

Doing the stuff they do, they way they do, makes it quicker and easier to build those things and it guarantees, they will rot and fall apart in around 10 years, so they can see you a new one. If they built them like an Airstream, most of those companies would go out of business.

First thing I did for my lease RV was have a nice metal cover built to go over it. Problem solved. And, it really helps keeping it cool in the summer. A/C does not work nearly as hard.

First time in 43 years of married life we don't have an RV.
I'm loving it! Wife is already looking though! We've had everything from an Appleby popup trailer to a 40 ft
diesel pusher and one thing's for sure, if you don't pull regular maintenance on them, you WILL have problems. Leaking seams is nearly a guarantee.

Those skylights really help ventilation when not running a/c. There's actually people who use these things without electric hookup and water you know. Lol

I have always put the roof vent covers on the top of the crank up roof vent on the RVs I have had. Solves the dry rot problem with that flimsy vent and also allows you to crack the vent for a little help with the heat in the summers.

Don't see why you couldn't put the AC underneath with a vent, use same heater vents. Would be way quieter.

There use to be several companies that offer basement air systems. The problem most had , was they used a flexible duct in subfloor. The condensation would be the duct with water and wouldn't allow any air to flow to vents. Also, most of the basement system had to be completely dropped and removed to work on them.

Everyone wants Airstream quality but wants to pay for a jay flight. But without maintenance, they will all leak. I have a 06 Springdale. It was a Fema trailer. It had leaked in several area before I got it. I have kept the roof sealed. The corners caulked, and I haven't had a issue with it in 8 years

Not even close. We have a camper at the coast that we spend a lot of time in and we notice a big difference when the roof vents are opened up. I don't know why, maybe heat rises or just having additional openings. Of course when the wind is right those flaps scoop air and force it down like a blower.

You keep mentioning maintenance. My leaks were from the cheap plastic skylights that shouldn't be on the roof in the first place. The manufacturers should offer RVs without useless holes in the roof. Like I said, I had the crappy skylights replaced already.

Did you have side vents to compare the top vents with? Of course not, so you can't say whether the side vents woulda been the same or better. It still makes no sense to put unnecessary holes in a roof.
Same with houses. The only time I had a leak in my roof was from a skylight in one of my homes years ago. Unneeded hole in the roof. Never built a house with a skylight since and my last one I'm building in Rockport won't have one for sure.

You can only put so many holes/windows in the side and still can't account for hot air rising. I like the roof vents, they're way more effective used in conjunction with open windows than another window. The manufacturers should definitely make it an option though for people who only use shore power and run the a/c the whole time. There's lots of holes in all our house roofs and lots of ither holes in your camper roof, a hole is a hole.

Default Why do RVs have holes in their roofs?

Seems like some people are confusing skylights that SH mentioned and roof vents. They are not the same thing.

We have a skylight over the shower in ours and I hate it. I should have had Carey close it off and roof over it when he replaced my roof. For now I at least have some of the reflective bubble wrap material installed on the inside to block the light and help with heat intrusion.

Itís hard enough to keep them cool as it is.

It's so ironic that I'm reading this post.........after being on the roof of my RV all weekend. I replaced a vent cover, skylight cover, taped, primed and added liquid rubber coating to my roof.

I was asking these very same questions as I was sweating, cussing and questioning my sanity doing this project in July.

Hmmmmm.....a ceiling fan would be a better option than a hole in the roof. Plus, it works when the wind ain't blowing. Battery operated, of course.

Skylights are for headroom, usually in the bathroom, shower area...

I damaged my roof in Fredricksberg and just had Spray America Coatings do a Linex spray replacement....
They did a great job....$6000 for a 43' Open range RV and they did the 5 slide out also....
They sprayed over the skylights, which I have 7' ceilings in mine

I'm coating the roof and seams on my 3 year old camper this weekend with Dicor Coolcoat with ceramic crystals, and self leveling seam caulk. I want to keep the roof/seams in good shape, and am hoping it will help it cool down faster when we pull in on really hot days. Also ordered an RV Airflow unit for the AC to try to make it more efficient. If that doesn't get me where I want to go....I'm calling Mr Birdwell about adding an AC.

I didn't run the slide out yesterday when I inspected the rest of the roof, I assume it will have the same roof material as the main camper?
