Nice. It should work out. I hope to have mine installed this week sometime. The paint needs time to harden first.

Gutter install

While I was in the roof area I noticed this screw. Must have been at the end of a shift or something. Good thing thereís white goop for everything. Click image for larger version

I don't know if they can be adapted...
But our Tiffin came with some righteous gutters

So I ordered on Amazon: Trim-Lock Drip Rail

The product comes in 25í rolls with self-stick foam tape attached.
I cleaned off the location where the line runs, and then lightly sanded for best adherence.
Once in place, the water is guided to either end of the roof rather than down the side of the RV.
I ordered enough for both sides of the Vegas.
Iím very satisfied
Here are photos of the final install.
One of the reviews on Amazon says it canít be used on a rubber roof. Yours is membrane as well? Did you clean with alcohol prior?

Wiped down with rubbing alcohol
Then lightly sanded
Buffed off with a dry towel
Remove backing from double-stick foam tape

It adhered fine and has stayed in place for last 12mo (since original install).

No more drip marks across the sides of the RV, just at each end.

I used these on my coach as well but had to buy the 50 ft rolls to avoid seams. I find that I still need to ďlevelĒ with one end of the coach low or the rain/condensate goes over the side instead of to the end.

Feedback

Finally getting around to this project as well...would like to mount on top of our Vegas also.

Wondering if there is a need for the gutter spouts and would appreciate more install pictures and any updates after your Drip Rails have now been installed for awhile?

Just completed adding $10 camco spouts on both sides/front & rear to my drip rails

The system works great
No more streaks
