Safety first. Disc, brakes UNLESS current roof problems. Then spray on RVROOF.COM. Disc here and no roof problems but I'm considering the roof anyway.

Absolutely disk brakes and get rid of the cheap, antiquated electric drum brakes.

The Rhino Coatings roof I have is a formulation specific for RVs, but yes, it is very much like a spray-in bed-liner. I understand that it is being offered as an option by some of the high-end RV manufacturers. Have had it 3 years and am satisfied.

I don't think I would do any. Never had an issue with drums other than difficulty of maintenance, and if money is no object I'm taking it to a shop for inspection/adjustment every year anyway lol.

Independent suspension, not sure what that adds for me. Another thing I don't think I've ever had an issue with.

Spray on roof... nope. I'd just have the shop that does my annual inspections (money is no factor, remember?) take care of the stock roof as needed.

I'd sure have a nice truck though!

No point in having $$$ suspension upgrades if the roof is in need of work.
So I'd make sure the coach was in prime shale before I dumped $$$ into something that isn't 100% needed.

My unit is only 1 year old so it is hard to think about any changes but the roof has always been my greatest concern with any of my previous Rv's due to the potential damage. A forever roof would provide a great peace of mind for me.
