Coragated plastic under belly

Has anyone else repaired/replaced their plastic under belly? We have a 2011 sunset trail 26bh and when taking the cover off this spring I noticed the plastic underbelly is cracked and hanging in several places. The dealer said $900 to fix it. I contacted crossroads and they quoted $290 for the roll of plastic with an added $300 in shipping. The shipping is more than the product.. ridiculous. The dealership also suggested " ahh just tear it off you dont need that insulation anyway" are you kidding?

Please help

Gorilla tape works good for me. Make sure the area is clean then put on the tape then i use a heat gun or a hair dryer to heat the tape. Its very hard to remove later. this works for tares or small access points. If it real bad replace it.

I thought about the sheets from home depot. Just worried about the seams. I was thinking of aluminum angle iron pieces along the seams. Currently have it gorilla taped up

Just like dagst1 said, heat the Gorillla tape with a hot air gun and it will seal the seams for good.

My RV dealer sold me the stuff by the foot. He also had the tape sold by the roll and itís very sticky. I had to replace the back 2/3rds of mine as it cracked and ripped apart when I towed it home from storage.

I have the fabric underbelly on my camper...I think I would replace the underbelly with it instead of the plastic if I had to choose between the two of them...IMHO...

The replacement stuff I got was much thicker than the original.

Hi jnolan,

If what you mean by “seams” is that you will have two or three panels from front to back, that can actually be a benefit if you need to get in the underbelly in the future for repair, etc. Then you only have to lower that one panel. The cross member sounds good, and I would overlap each piece with the next piece toward the front to keep water out.
