I wonder how it is to replace roof mounted items after the Rhino coating has been applied.

I believe the most common so far is a 20 yr if you remove the fabric. And the heat is supposed to be less if colored to white or a few shades within. It should be more of a heat shield than a warming . That is how it has worked with the boats so far.

2nd. I also was told only a very few first manufactured were warmer inside or had a heat issue so a few other modifications were made to make it cooler inside in summer heat.
I do not remember what they were but seems like I was told a barrier and color change was made.
On a side note, history of a former DRV owner who had sustained major damage to his roof, a Rhino dealer made him a offer he could not refuse so he gave him the go ahead to do that roof. I spoke with the man who inspected it years later when it was brought in for a trade on a new unit. It was still like the day it was put on and never had a issue with years of use and miles. I have a Rhino in my Ford Truck and it is fantastic so I have a lot of confidence in that product and suspect we will be seeing more of it in other RV products in the future.
