RE: 2015 Ford Focus flat tow damage

I read this topic with some concern as I tow a 2017 Ford Focus and have done so for more than 20K miles with some four trips from the east coast across the rockies of Wyoming, montana and colorado. It appears the towbar could have been connected to the bumper assembly instead of to the chassis properly. I remember when I had baseplate installed the mechanic had to remove the entire front end of vehicle in order to make the correct connections since he said it would be literally impossible to properly hook up the tow bar unless he remove the front end. Once removed I could see why because the Focus being subcompact is very cramped and you simply cannot reach anything unless you have clearance. Anyway he did a good job as I have never had any problem associated with the baseplate mount which is critical for any flat tow.

RE: roof replace or coat?

Over the years I have used many coatings for trailers and 5th wheels roofs. Now drive a MH. Most of the previous coating have been of the acrylic type but two years ago I tried the Henry Tropicool coating. I am sold and find it to be extremely good after two years. The stuff sticks like GLUE and looks nice and actually does keep the inside cooler. The Tropicool has a solid track record on outdoor buildings and the like. I highly recommend it and it is safe and proven for RV Epdm roofs and the like.
