New Roof options

Hi there folks,
Im in the process of renovating the interior of my 1992 gulfstream ultra unlimited 27 ft after some water damage was created due to the previous owners neglect. One of the things I'll be replacing this spring will be the roof. Now, I have received several quotes from around my area of Upstate NY for a rubber roof and they range from $2500 -$4000 !!!.
I also have the option of ordering the materials myself and doing it and praying to god I do it right.
I know that Rhinolinings has a spray on aplication for RV roofs but there are no dealers near me at this time this is also an option if I want to drive out of the area. I have a local company located in Barnevald Ny called Rolling Star trailers that design & build custom trailers from the ground up that can do a seamless aluminum roof for me as well this is the roof I may go with.

So, do any of my fellow RVer's have any feedback on my roofing options? Im looking to get this done not the cheapest way possible but I also dont want to pay more for the new roof than I did for the RV.

OP = you... (Original Poster)

I have an aluminum roof that I like a lot because it means no tears and won't wear out. Just have to keep the an eye on seams around the edge and cutouts for vents, A/C, etc.

The rubber roof has been on the RV for over 20 years.
Put another one on it and wash it a couple times a year.
It may last you another 20 + years. Or until the MH is over 40 years old.

Will you keep it that long?
The $2,500 sounds about right for a 27' MH.

Why don't you try the EPDM Coatings "liquid roof" I used it on my old 28ft and plan on doing my current 37ft when it warms up a little.

Last summer I stopped for a chat with Rachel, The RV GIRL (That is her license plate) She was doing a roof repair, Hottest part of the summer (no fun there) and it took her days, She gets 75 dollars an hour plus materials. and it took her days, She spent at least 4 hours a day for at least 4 days. (possibly more hours, I truly do not know how many but that is the absolute least) Let's figure 20 hours, 1500 dollars JUST in labor, plus materials (Just the rubber would be over 1,000 dollars, never mind the wood and insulation below it) and you start to get an idea of what it costs to do it right.

Did the liquid rubber just before fall.also used the primer pretty sure we had an alpha roof. biggest deal is the prep. cleaning that old rubber is messy as hell,keep it off the sides of your coach or it's murder to get off,wait for spring unless you have a heated shop, needs to be 60 degrees or above to cure proper .
