What is the best material to use to re-coat the roof of a 2000 Pace Arrow Vision? Thanks for your help!

I did our 98 with Liquid Rubber last year. It's a big job but certainly something most can DIY.

I did it alone but I think it would be MUCH easier doing with a partner that does nothing except bring you the paint (rather than having to constantly go up and down the ladder. I'd recommend having scaffolding which could make it much easier than having to walk on the roof also scaffholding allows you go go back and touch up spots you might have missed. Also make sure your roller brush / handle / etc is VERY sturdy. Mine stripped the threads for the handle about halfway through the job and it made the job much harder. I'd recommend keeping a small amount in the fridge overnight so that the next day you can have a 2nd look and touchup any spots that were missed or thing.

Overall, although I don't think I did a great job, it looks way better than it did before.

Having mine sealed with Cool Seal today by dealer I bought unit from. Made me a deal I can't refuse. Owed me a favor anyway. 1998 Fleetwood Pace arrow. Needed sealing real bad. Just recently purchased and don't know if ever sealed like I'm having done.

Getting someone else to do it at a good price sounds like a great idea. I had never heard of Kool Seal before but one thing that would concern me is whether it would be good on rubber roofs. It looks like it would work but their website says

I coated mine with EPDM rubber roof coating. They sell both a commercial coating and a special RV coating. I read the commercial coating works great on RV's and saves some money.

I bought a good quality paint roller with 6' handle and a "cork screw" mixer at Lowes. You have to thoroughly mix the 2-part coating with a drill and a cork screw mixer. It is very much like painting with thick paint. I coated each side and left a narrow walkway down the middle. I also used a small hand roller to get around obstacles. The next day I did touch ups and then finished off the walkway. It looks like new.

Schroll down and you will see one called top coat. It is for rubber roofs!

I used the Liquid EPDM rubber roof coating on my 5th wheel four years ago, still looks great. It sits outdoors 365 days a year, 50 miles west of Flagstaff, AZ. The winter snow, summer sun, and heavy monsoons have had no apparent effect on the coating.

Getting ready to do mine too. Liquid Rubber or Liquid Roof sure seems to be the way to go.
I've E-Bonded everything, now just got to order the LR and wait for the weather to warm-up a little more.

My EPDM rubber roof over 14 years old still looks good yet for a few more years.
I do pressure wash it a couple times a year.

I use no soap/brush or put any protector on it.
Last time washed 4/6/13

In outside weather 24/7/365
