Question Rubber v spray on

Good afternoon fellow RVers.

The 1999 Tradewinds is about due for a new replacement roof. I am seeking comments from anyone that has either had the rubber replaced or has had a spray on liner instead of the rubber. What are the cost comparisons of the two? Pros and cons on the difference. The spray on has perked my interest, however I am not married to the idea yet. Would like some input from both applications..
Thanks in advance..

we had the rhino roof installed about 8 years ago at about half the price of a new
rubber roof. the quoted price for a new rubber roof was about $9500 and only carried
a 10 year warranty. the price for a rhino roof was $4500 and carried a lifetime
warranty. a no brainer for the rhino roof. it has been outstanding so far with no
problems or issues. in fact it keeps the motorhome a few degrees warmer in the winter
and a few degrees cooler in the summer.

i dont know where u live but we had ours done in San Diego since we live in northern
California. i am sure there are other places that can also spray the rhino roof on
for you. Best thing we have done to our motorhome. it also looks nicer than the
original rubber roof and u can choose a color to match your motorhome,
good luck and happy trails

Looking in to a fairly new system, Armor RV Roof Sealant System. I have a one piece fiberglass roof with end caps mating to roof section and of course along the edge of the roof section where it mates to the sides of coach. All of these joints are potential water leaks.

The Armor RV Roof System is the latest technologies in liquid sealants. They also reseal around all vents or other items that are coming through the roof like the dish wiring, etc. Note that the System can be applied over any style/type roof. They claim sealant is very reflective which involves lower temperatures in the coach.

Armor Roof System will come to your location. Takes about 2-3 days (depending on weather conditions) with some drying time during the process. Lifetime written Warranty that is transferable at no charge for the transfer to new owner.

I have a 36' NRV model 5535 and their est. was $4,500-$5,000 (if added time needed to properly prepare the roof).
2004 NRV Dolphin 5355, 24' Pace Shadow trailer, inside is a "2011 Hemmings Muscle Machine of the Year" and 2011 Reno, NV. Hot August Nights "Best Restored Stock Car", 1970 Olds F85 W-31, Rally Red, 4 speed, 1 of 5 in this color, only 207 built
