Kool Seal or EPDM Liquid Roof?

Current predicament is this:

Do I fork up the $450 for a DIY kit of EPDM and Primer (via Liquid Roof, Solution For RV Roof Leaks Repair - EPDM Coatings )


Do I settle for $150 of Kool Seal and cross my fingers?

Looking for stories of success and failures. Pics attached for the state of my roof. The worst of the leaks were (hopefully) stopped by a ham fisted application of Eternabond tape and two tubes of Lap seal caulk.

Before anyone asks, both AC units were busted - so I removed them and covered the holes with plexiglass ... It was 70 degrees outside today and 95 in the cabin

I still have no idea what I'm doing ( I have no idea what I'm doing)

Hey TWall. I did the Rapid Roof System on my Southwind.Nice kit. I did it in 2 Weekends. It came with seam re enforcement and everything else.

kool seal will work fine as long as you use a primer which you have to use with liquid rubber.

use a 1/4" knap roller and do 2 coats rather than 1 thick coats.
