I bought my truck new in March 2004 and had the bed liner sprayed the next day. 9 plus years and it still looks good. Thousands of sprayed on bed liners and a few who aren't happy makes them all bad?

Doesn't make them all bad, but it darn well ensures that I won't be returning. I'm glad you got a great job. I didn't.

The value of anything is the end result, some good and some bad. Make your own choice and live with the results. It's "QUICK/EASY MONEY", bottom line. Warranties always carry some sort of LOOP HOLE. Good luck & travel safe.

OP here. I'm looking for folks who have had the top of their RV done, not the bed of their truck. There must be something different from the typical Rhino bed liner since a RV manufacturer has started doing it on their RV's and offer it to others regardless of RV brand. I've seen good and bad spray in liners, guess it depends on who does it. So, has anyone had the Excel Manufacturer do their roof with the Rhino thing????

are all RV roofs metal like a truck bed? If no... then why even consider skimping on an area that needs to be 100% water tight??

Ive had some terrible spray in liner jobs done. Ill be damned if I let a no talent liner hack anywhere near a roof. Id put shingles on the roof before bedliner...lol.

I do not know about a roof. I would say though that I have seen Rhino liners used on doors at our post office. They put it on the doors where the fork lifts hit the door with the forks when they go through. They were on for a long time and as far as I know are still on there. Only thing that held up to the abuse. That being said I would use Line X instead of Rhino because I did use Linex on my 2006 truck. It is sprayed over the paint so you still have the paint protection against rust. The Line X is a hot liquid process. Rhino is a cold process the Line X seems to go on more uniform thickness. I threw a piece of wood in the back of my truck and hit just right to dent in a wheel well. Took it to the body shop and they used whatever they use to straighten the dent back out. ( beat it on the backside with special shaped hammer) The Line X did not break or come off from the dent or the repair. The biggest factor about Line X to me was the warranty. If your Rhino dealer that puts on Rhino bedliner and goes out of business your warranty is gone. Line X warranty is good at any Line X dealership.

X2 on the LineX I have it in the bed of my truck and has been exceptionally durable and is also a flexible material.

We also have it on the roof of our communications trailer which is a converted palomino travel trailer. Not only has it been a great roofing material but it also gives us traction when walking on the roof.

Definitely LineX! I had it done before taking delivery of my truck in '07, still looks great with no issues at all. As for a roof on an RV, why not if it's done right. I haven't been easy on it and it's stood the test sitting outside exclusively for six years now, but it's expensive and it's mostly labor to do it if someone else does it.

That being said when I need to do it i'll be using this: Liquid Roof, Solution For RV Roof Leaks Repair - EPDM Coatings

At our 2010 Safari Rally at Mount Hood Oregon, one of the members had his roof and lower front bumper area Rhino Coated. He said he was very happy with the job, especially Color matching to his coach's color.

There is a place in FL, David's Permanent Coatings, that does RV roofs with a spray coating. I've not used the product and I'm not endorsing it. I have seen one coach done with the spray product and the owner say he liked it very much.
I'm thinking of having it done this fall as my roof is showing signs of needing replacement after ten years.

Have you ever watched a truck-bed prepped for the application? The man I watched used a rotary sander to remove ALL the factor paint from the bed first, then washed it with a solvent before spraying on the liner. He was more thorough than the man in that video, there was no paint remaining in the truck-bed when he finished sanding.
My next truck will have a non-skid bed mat instead of spray-on liner.
I was told they just scratched the bed before spraying in the liner. Either way, all my trucks have had spray liners. It's a shame that some folks do half a** work.

Still not directly answering the OP, but I would be another that would think Line-X better. I have had success with it on three vehicles, but not on a RV roof.
