DRV ES Fiberglass roof

Are the fiberglass roofs sealed to the plywood? Or are they loosely sealed? if so why?

I was up on mine the other day and it seemed to me like it is not glued down to the plywood from one end to the other.
As I walked on it i could feel give / air pocket between the roof and plywood.
Maybe it had some adhesive strips every few feet for expansion.

FYI I was planning to get the fiberglass rood but I was convinced to stick with the rubber roof. Sounds like there have been problems with the fiberglass. Longer warranty with rubber.

Just throwing that out for thought.

Mine has some flex. However I chose it for durability. We like state and national parks and with my old fiver the rubber roof would get cut. So far the fiberglass roof has been the answer to that problem.
