Jayco’s Magnum Roof System
Jayco’s Magnum Roof System avatar


Did you know that Jayco’s roof is more 50% stronger than its competitors’ roof? During testing, our roof system withstood 4,500 pounds! Now that’s a sturdy roof. That’s why we call it the Magnum Roof System and there are five reasons why our roof is stronger.

  1. Screwed, not stapled construction: We screw down 3/8” roof decking at each seam to create a more firmly secured structure and reduce the chance that fasteners will come loose and puncture the rubber roof material.

  2. Oversized nail plates: We use oversized nail plate joint fasteners on both sides of the trusses to make for a much tighter truss with much less chance of movement.
  3. Thicker wood, not thinner aluminum: Our Magnum roof system uses 2×2 vertical studs that are placed to maximize load capacity. To further enhance the strength, we use nail plates on each side of the stud.Magnum
  4. Safer wiring: The 2×2 vertical studs provide smoother edges to run wiring along and greatly reduces the risk of electrical shorts.
  5. 7” header beam: We use 7” header beams between the roof and slideout openings. A more acceptable material in home construction for load-bearing beams.

    I thik the roofing information is informative & interesting. Since we have three sliders, two of which have been problems, maybe an article on Jayco’s sliders would be interesting. For the overall quality of the 5th wheel, the slider systems don’t seem very good.
