A new roof kit costs less than $1000. You can do it yourself but its labor intensive. You have to take everything off the roof including the awning and drip rails. Then you peel the old roof off. Teenagers are a good tool for that part of the operation. You roll the adhesive on the luane with a paint roller and then just unroll the roof material over that. Let it bake in the sun a day or two and then put all the stuff back on it.
When our roof was damaged by hurricanes Frances and Jeanne back in 04 we replaced our roof. Luckily for us, insurance covered the cost. It was $5200. At that time, Libby and I were selling RVs in FL and our dealership (now defunct) was replacing roofs left and right. It really isn't a big deal, but it is time consuming and takes some heavy tugging. I helped replace more than one roof and we watched a number of other get replaced. It isn't rocket science but 5k is a pretty generic price for having one replaced by an RV service center. We charged something between 10 and 15 bucks a foot to replace one and then added the material on top of that.
Having built two homes now, I would be tempted to try it myself but since I am approaching 60, I might just fork over the cash and watch someone else do it!
