Heng's Rubber Roof Coating. Goes on easily, does a nice job and no primer is needed. I used a roller and brush. Clean well before applying.

I used 2 1/2 gallons to apply two light coats on 30' of roof on our 96 Southwind.

It's been on over 3 years and still looks good.

I use Heng's too. As said, easy to apply.

Liquid Roof. is an EPDM coating that bites into the original EPDM roof and becomes one.
I used Liquid Roof on my Bounder and was impressed with the produce.
It's pricey but I would do it again.

I used an Elastomeric coating from Menards, don't remember the name, 5 gallon bucket, worked well on the last MH we had, and am going to do it again on the one we have now.

That's what I used too. I did the roof on my old travel trailer in 2012, it was still looking good when I sold it last year.

I recently did a complete cleaning of my roof including taking off (all) the old caulk, re-caulking completely and applying three coats of Hengs' (orange can) I used almost two gallons applying with a roller. Took me about a week to complete the whole project. Hard on the knees, body but I am really happy with the results.


There are other products that I researched but decided on the Hengs' because of the easy process of application. Good luck with your projects. Let us know what worked for you. We are always interested in the final results.


Safe travels. Arnold

I used Hengs with good results. The only issue is it really isn’t a permanent fix. Every 3-4 years you’ll need to redo it. For me that wasn’t an issue, plus I view it as a good reason to inspect and repair any damage that may have happened since the last coating.

I used Kool Coat on an EPDM roof. Washed the roof, primed it, then 2 coats of Kool Coat and 12 years later was just as good as the day I put it on.

Dicor Cool Coat. Roof was Tan, sun was strong made the camper hot. Primer 2 coats of cool coat made a 15 degree difference.
