Look into rhino linings. They have a new product that sprays on and last years. So I'm told.

Done right may be a great thing. Done right is the question though. You can read lots of horror stories about this. Rino not standing behind it either, reason dealer not certified.

I am no expert, but I like the aluminum roof. No rot for life, no worries about tearing if a branch scrapes it.

I use 116 Vulcum made by Tremco. GOOD STUFF. I applied it 3 years ago and it is still very soft, no cracks. We have been using this on mobile home roofs for 15+ years now and no problems.

My .02 worth.

Aluminum is great for a roof, but the roofing doesn't rot. It's the substrate and decking that is the issue. Any holes in the roof via screws can leak water.

I bought EPDM for my 5th wheel. Supplier sent TPO instead so the glue wasn't holding. I had never done rubber roofing so I didn't realize that I had the wrong material. I had everything installed back on the roof over new 1/4 inch sheating. So I ran termination bar down both sides at the round transition where the wiring runs. I then measured between term bars and made a grid pattern and used 2 inch washers every 18 inches. I covered all term bars and washers with 4 inch butyl tape for rubber roofing.

I took pictures to my local RV dealer and they said the roof will never leak or come off.

I went to my supplier and told them they gave me the wrong material. They gave me another 5 gallon bucket of glue and a roll of EPDM plus $1500.00 for my labor. I sold the rubber and glue on Craig's list.

I used Dicor 901BA for EPDM and TPO and it worked for both. Wonder what you got.
