Roof Gutters

Our 30FE came with a very shallow gutter on the drivers side. The passenger side does not have a gutter at all. We are interested in replacing them with something like this. Anyone use these?

Thanks. I looked at that.

You think that would replace the plastic insert? Or just mount on top of it?

Those gutters are only meant to catch the drool that runs off and helps with the haze lines created on the sides. It mounts below the existing and for me up against it so it blends in nicely.

Here’s my answer
I recently installed spouts
The system works great, no more streaks

Copy that
Next time it rains I’ll post photos
BTW...the Vegas/Axis has a very sloped roof. High in the middle, low on each side
My system drains perfectly, no puddles

You have the same non-gutter rails I do. I would like to place the rail at the roof line with a gutter and a spout at the ends.
