I put Eternabond on all the seams and roof penetrations on my trailer shortly after I purchased it new in 2004. The tape is still holding up well today and has never leaked in 17 years.

I did paint over the tape several years ago with a liquid rubber product to protect my rubber roof for a few more years. It has held up well under that product also.
I purchase the tape from Best Materials who had the cheapest price at the time. Probably still does! [emoticon]

That is good to hear, since I did the same with my 5th wheel. I wanted to get it protected when it was still "new", and we did buy ours new.

OP, I have never heard of the brand the you mentioned, but I had also used Eternabond on our last 5th wheel. It doesn't cost that much if you just want to go with Eternabond instead of the stuff that is "just as good". That always raises a red flag with me.

We also did all seams and around vents etc with eternabond tape several years ago after the refrigerator vent leaked. Haven't had any problem since.

I have used the Extreme tape and it IS Eternabond. For me, it just gives me a lot of peace of mind.

The salesman might not even own a RV, much less really know much about a product he sells. Tread with caution when dealing with sales people.
