Lifting 5 gal. Recoating Bucket???

I plan to recoat my RV roof soon. I have everything figured out, except how to get the 50+ pounds bucket of recoating on to the roof. I will be working alone, and all the youtube videos NEVER show that part (transporting it up). Any ideas?

I would suggest pouring it in 1 gallon buckets.

Ask a young neighbor to give you a hand for a few minutes. Then a nice gift card will ensure that you shouldn't feel as though you imposed.

The roof on my coach took just short of a gallon per coat . Hauling the five gallon up there will just make you mad , because you have to haul four gallons back down at the end of the day.

I have thought of using the 1 gal. can solution from the start. Thanks for confirming my hunch.
