Hi,
I just looked at a 2005 Jayco 23B. It has been sitting since July 2007. It has a flat roof and I'm wondering if they naturally tend to sag over time. I don't know what type of construction is used in a jayco flat roof. I have pushed on the roof and it appears solid. The sag does not seam out of the ordinary. Any help would be appreciated.

The other thing is that the woman stated that she hadn't closed the slide properly and that water droplets where on the ceiling near the slide. There are bubbles and pimples in this area with a few water spots. I have attached some pics. I'm thinking that the ceiling paper may be replaced. I looked on the floor, rugs, coach etc. There ae no other signs of water damage. Could it have been condensation?

I would be very, very leery of the unit. Remember that problems you can see will also mean problems you can't see. Sounds pretty scary to me. A 2005 unit that has been taken care of shouldn't have any ceiling sag, IMO. Run, Forrest, Run!

Bill,
If there ever existed the perfect indication of trouble...what you are showing is that indication...this looks like big trouble to me.

There are lots and lots of rigs for sale and very good deals to be found in this economy.
I'd keep looking.

That not ceiling paper, but actually interior decorative wall board. The ceiling would have to replaced since it's not paper.

Stay clear of this, they probably never did any roof maintanence and have ruined the laminated roof panel. Probably will cost the price of a new camper to repair.

A new 22' laminated camper had a wall get hit in an accident. It was $4000, and the labor was another $4000. For a total of $8000. I wouldn't bother with this. The laminates are disposable campers as repair cost as much as buying a new one.

Good luck on finding one that works for you.

Have a good one.

Stay away from it. A replaced roof on that unit will cost you in excess of $6000.00. Take it from one who knows.

What you are seeing is a Jayco roof issue that happened between 2005-2007 models with the TPO felt backed roof. There has been a leak there and it's severe. To make the laminated roof structure fail to the point where it's bowing is a BAD BAD thing, the dimples is water trying to come out of the saturated roof.

I just went through the roof replacment on my '07, fortunately under warranty.
I had the exact same spots as shown.
The dealer determined the cause to be from the AC, 1 side was not tightened down properly.
They did replace the TPO with EPDM and did a great job at the dealer.
Given the extent of work involved with removing the entire roof panel I'd run away from this one.
