coating for aluminum roof?

1985 Alpenlite 5th wheel, has an aluminum roof. I've resealed all roof penetrations with dicor, then topped that with eternabond tape. Sealed all the way around the perimeter with dicor, and will probably top that with the tape too. The roof has once been coated with something, looks like some paint residue, I can see the brush marks, but hardly anything left. Roof now gets dark and dirty very quickly. Will the elastomeric roof coatings work over the aluminum? Needs to be protected somehow.

I'm sure there are several products that can be used but I've used the Heng's industrial roof coating for aluminum. It's top quality stuff and you can google it for prices. You don't want to use a product that is specifically for rubber roofts. Here is the link: http://hengsindustries.com/roof_coatings.html
