Good quality linear polyurethane would be my choice, in blast white gloss. Basically treating the roof like the topsides of a boat would be my approach. West Marine offers these instructions which seem pretty good to me.

We were once looking for a Break Out Another Thousand a few years ago. Boats that had been LP'd looked beautifully smooth and the coating was almost plastic to the touch. Most had the work done in Mexico.

I think it is a good bet for us in the '00. Now to get the gumption to do it ourselves.

We treat our roof as if it were a boat, and treat the fiberglass and the plastic with a UV protectant annually. We also treat the slide toppers as they seem to be vulnerable to UV exposure. We had to replace them at 3 years due to excessive cracking.

John wears his boat shoes (Sperry Topsiders) when up on the roof (we used to own a sailboat - seems like we were constantly cleaning and treating the fiberglass :( ).
