Those of you that painted your outer shell, did you just use plastic paint? Great idea to reduce the heat inside the coach.

Did you use "rubberized" paint or just regular Krylon type paint on the outside?
Sound like a great mod and I would like to do it also.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

That is what I used. That way if it was a failure I could simply peel it off. I then thought perhaps it would not stand up to the elements but it is still on there like the day I sprayed it on.

What kind or type paint did you use on your skylight?

Mine is two layers also. Removed the inside and filled with the silver bubble wrap insulation sheets sold at Lowes. Best thing I ever did. Staying in Houston this summer and not sure I will ever remove even when I go north to cooler weather. Used remained of sheep to make front windshield sun block. Well worth the effort and cost.
