Alternate Roof Material ?

I have been spending some time gathering information about roofs, trying to understand my roof condition and potential subsequent actions.

I started wondering what else maybe out there for replacement other than the Rubber type roof that is the standard for a great percentage of RV's. It didn't take long for me to make a mental jump to "bedliner" materials used in truck beds and cargo areas. Hard, flexible, sprayed on, seemed to make sense. Searches on the forum turned up nothing. Searches on Google found some applications including an industry leader, Rhino, starting to push a product for this application.

So anyone have any experience or general knowledge on this, seems like a potential game changer to me.

I have put on many rubber roofs over the yrs and they work great get about 12 yrs out of them if you keep care of them. The bedliner I've seen some done and It's a great product too gets in all the places needed and seals, then there is metal or fiberglass both still work good and low to maintain I would say bedliner would top it all it still moves don't crack and hard as steel.

I came across some others also, a place in Green Cove Springs Fl. RVRoofs.com using a variation, also some roofing companies that spray Industrial Poly roofs. Pretty exciting, looks really good, price seems to be about the same but 20 / 30 year warranty and zero maintenance make it sound good. What it will take is a volume RV manufacturer to come out with it std or optional.
