Thanks, nitecreate, for the information. I'm going to have to start looking for a location here in the southeast. I don't think that's a bad price at all to get rid of the maintenance, cleaning, and what will almost certainly be the eventual replacement of the rubber roof.

I don't get it... while very strong, aren't these products much too brittle to be used on an RV roof?

It's quite strong and a surprisingly flexible material. I seriously don't think there's a branch out there that would penetrate it. I think it would take a pretty large tree??? The company shows dropping an egg from what looks like a two story building. Ugly, then they spray an egg with line-x and drop it with zero damage and it bounced....

Not brittle at all. Linex can stretch 50 percent. Go to Linex.com. I am a Linex dealer.

about $10 a square foot, Our shop is only 12 feet high, we will have to spray it outside, which is not a problem.

When you recoat your EDPM rubber roof with liquid EDPM, you no longer have to wash and no longer have the black streaks. I would demand that the AC unit be removed for any recoat job.

I'm impressed

Just got my rig home and the roof looks impressive.. In getting on top to take the pictures I found out I'll never slip off this roof, one bonus I didn't even think of... I had them do the front of the 5th wheel and I opted for black. Here's the before and after pictures, as was requested..... This outfit is not a small operation. Professional all the way...

So Rhino is the only supplier and only one supplier for about 350 miles.
Rhino is lying to you.

Just make sure you are comparing apples to apples. The normal bed liner materials that both Rhino Linings and Line-x offer can be used as a roof replacement, but the Rhino Eco-Coat material that Rhino Linings offers is very different and has benefits bed liner materials don't. So pops2 is correct in saying that Line-x does not offer this material.

You know, I believe the initial coat is the same as the bed liner?..Then they spray a top coat (silver in color) and then roll out a finish white coat. As far as the total chemistry of the product they used, I suggest you contact line-x and ask them. I know the product that line-x uses and Rhino uses are different, which on is the best, I really couldn't tell you. What I do know is this product is durable, flexible and I feel will outlast my 5th wheel for years to come....
