Look into David's Permanent Coatings, Inc. or RVRoof.com. They are near you and have years of experience. From everything I have heard about them, that is the place to go.

I would recommend that anyone considering this to check roof vents or other items that may be weak from UV damage, and replace as needed prior to having it done. It may save some aggravation down the road.

I have thought this type roof covering would work well, but wonder about it cracking from flexing when you have to walk on the roof for some reason. Truck beds don't flex when you step on them like RV roofs tend to.

AFChap, you bring up a good point. I've watched the video that Rhino put out several times. But it never occurred to me about it flexing. I'll send them an email to find out and let you know or you can send them one as well.

Older post, but I had to pipe in. Bedliner material flexes well and doesn't crack, so I would not be concerned about flex in the least (unexpectedly tested this theory with my pickup). Any follow up on the RV process from anyone? Happy, not happy, etc?

What I would be concerned about is having to replace a roof component after the fact. Lets say you had to replace a vent, would it not have to be sealed with dicor? If that is the case then you are left resealing every couple years just like a rubber roof. What if an ac unit goes out?

I'd like to thank you for your comments on the Rhino roof. I'm very interested in getting mine done when the time comes. I want to get the facts from people now instead of waiting till i have to scramble to find facts. I want to be ready. It's been over a year now how is yours standing up what is promised. Thank you so much.

I had the roof on our '04, Newmar,kSDP done by David's Permanent Roof Coating back in December. After inquiring at Newmar what they would charge to replace my roof it was a no brainer to go to David's. For less than 5k they coated the roof with their product which is both flexible and tough as nails. That included the radius on both sides to the gutters. They also have a wide range of colors to match your paint or very close to it.
I'm not related to those folks in any way shape or form but I would recommend a close look at their product.
I'll try to post some pics.

I noticed someone was mentioning Line- X so I am assuming they make a similar product. I know of a big difference between Line-X and rhino coatings. Both are lifetime warrantied. Rhino coatings are warrantied by the dealer. If your away from the dealer or your dealer goes out of business you are out of luck. Line-X is warrantied by the manufacturer so if you have a problem with it any dealer can service it under the warranty. To me that is a huge difference. I have Line-X in my pickup and we used rhino coating on doors that fork lift drivers opened with the forks when they needed to go through. Both products work very well. Someone mentioned flexing if the bed flexes. I was throwing fireplace wood in the back of my pickup and hit the wheel well just right to put a dent about 4 inches across and 2 inches deep in it. I went to the body shop and they used a hammer and forming tool to knock the dent flat from the other side. I figured my Line- X would crack from that and have to be fixed. Never cracked still in place with no problem. I do not think roofs are going to flex as much as someone being behind the metal hitting it with a hammer and straightening out a dent.

If an AC goes out the gasket is commonly part of the replacement. - AC's are probably the LEAST intrusive change on the roof. I wish everything was so easy. Put on a new gasket, clamp it in place, don't worry about a leak unless the roof is rotted or not sound.
