Fiberglass roof question

We are completely replacing roof on our motorhome. We are planing to finish it with double layer fiberglass coating. We are still not completely sure how it will work, but we have idea because of the fiberglass decking.
Also we are going to exchange 3/4" to 1" blue foam insulation.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Rod, welcome to FiberglassRV. This site is pretty much dedicated to lightweight molded fiberglass towables. The small 13' - 25' variety! We do have members that own or have owned motorhomes. However, you may find better answers to your questions at a sister-owned site: iRV2 - RV Forum Community or perhaps the Open Road Forums at

Hi, welcome. We had a 24 foot Argosy for many years, when the children were small. We never had any leaks though. Being familiar with the Argosy I don't think that what you propose is a good idea. Are you sure that leaking is due to anything other than the roof penetrations at the air conditioner and vent?
