I'm with Rich R. I'm all for the aluminum roof that's what I have on my 2010 1810H. I've had my share of rubber roofs on past and they all need constant maintenance. I've been told rubber roofs are only good for ten years unless they are "WELL" cared for. The only down side to the aluminum roof is it's noise in the rain but we kinda like that!

I can't hear it anymore - Last time it happened I went deaf!

But, in all seriousness, I suspect an aluminum roof IS more durable than a rubber one, even with the possibility of galvanic pinholes. I know my aluminum roof is perfectly sound.

The last heavy rain trip i was on I started thinking about a rain fly cover that would mount over the roof. Totally absurb, but, a thought. About four arched tent poles over the width of the trailer (cleverly inserted into small brackets along the gutters) and then a nylon rainfly with half a dozen small bungy type attachments on each side and at the corners. But I only think about in the rain. On the other hand- we never have to look outside to see if its raining.
