R400 Rubber Roof Coat

Does anyone have experience with a rubber roof coating product called R400 or R400 50/50?
It is made in Fort Lauderdale, and the local RV shop is promoting it. I would want to hear some reviews before committing.
Alternate suggestions also welcome, although I expect there are many threads on this topic. The roof is 15 years old, original.
Thanks.

Twelvevolt: I read the blurb on the R400.....and one thing caught my attention ....it is an ELASTOMER type product not an EPDM product. I had just coated my 15 year old roof too....My 1996 Bounder needed repair in a bad way. I went with the Liquid Roof. The product is only $40 more than the R400 in the 4 gallon sized bucket and it covered my entire 34 foot MH with about a half gallon remaining. EPDM coating on an EPDM roof is what all that voices on this forum were reporting when I had asked...I will offer the same advice to you.

Thanks for the input. Is EPDM the older (pre 2000) 'rubber roof' or the newer synthetic material?

I think it to be the older style roof material and is being phased out with the TPO type. My roof is EPDM.... it was in very poor condition when i bought the rig two seasons ago. I scrubbed it....fixed the tears with the Eternabond tape, sealed with Dicor Lap Seal....and coated with Liquid Roof. The result was more than I imagined. I now have washed the roof twice and used my left over coating to get spots that looked like they were thinly applied. I have travel confidence that the roof will last several more years to the point that I went ahead and put the solar project together and mounted panels over that membrane. Liquid Rubber is some awesome product.

GM....I was reading a thread where another IRV2 user had stated that he was prepping his rig for Rhino liner material to be applied. I kept thinking in my mind how dynamic the chassis of any RV really is....it twists and flexes all over as we pull or drive it ..... I could not see Rhino liner being able to maintain that property like an RV requires.
