I've had excellent service with Heng's Rubber Roof Coating.
It goes on easily with a brush or roller and needs no primer.
Clean the roof well before you apply any type coating, prep is the key.

You can clean it all you want before priming it and coating it. But if it's wearing away, it's still going to lift as the surface under the new coating lets go.

Time to reroof it!

I was going back and forth with my 07 TT. I priced it both ways and it was a wash in terms of DIY, but replacing the entire roof was more time consuming. In the end I traded it for our 2012 with a fiberglass roof! A little more pricey, but me and the wife are happy.

Do you know you're not suppose to post the same thing in more than one subforum? Clicky

Except that I don't go n the 5th wheel forum. I see no problem with posting it in more than one Forum......within reason.

We did it several years back...got about 5yrs out of the coating before it started lifting for a fraction of the cost that a new roof would have cost.

Click the button on the top right that says "Forum Rules" and read the second rule.

Again, I don't go into he 5th wheel Forum. So posting it in 2 different ones makes sense so other people will see it. It one of those "rules" that needs to be done away with.

I used Dico and their activator. The roof is bubbling in areas, meaning it didn't stick properly. I spent 4 hours prepping that roof too.
