That’s a bummer about the Lance roofs. We plan on keeping it under covered parking and if you did any caulking on your own would that void the warranty?

The roof has a mfg 12 year warranty. If you drill into it, to do a solar install, or if you mess with adding anything - you'll void the 12 year. Caulking and regular maintenance will not void the warranty!

Frank, where was that pic taken? It doesn't look like a finished product. Exposed screws along the roof...

A piece of advice, get the 160 watt solar panel now, that way it's under warranty, etc. - you'll like it, guaranteed!

The photo was taken in the Lance Transfer Lot. It's a finished product. Those exposed screws are used throughout the trailer.

Some Lance units have fully decked roofs so you can walk on it to be able to reach all the places you need to caulk, others do not have that type of roof. You will need to check the specs on yours to see whether you can walk on it.

As to the exposed screws, those are along the rail and do not seem to be a problem. We found on our old trailer that the channels with the bubbled out vinyl cover (not sure what to call that) tends to come out of the channel over time. And the heat seemed to cause problems for that stuff. It was a bigger PITB than these exposed screws.

Ours did come with the solar panel. We had never thought about having one before but since it was there, we got it. I am so glad we do have it now that we have boon-docked for several more days at a time than we ever did before.

Oh, and if you haven't heard, Lance was just purchased by REV Group this past week.

Here's hoping they maintain the high quality Lance is known for.
