Looks strange, but will it work?

Spent a couple of months in Yuma,AZ this winter, and a couple of rows over in the park, a tt had the roof sprayed with rhino bed liner. Said the company assured him they would stand behind their product. Not sure I like the dark color, but who likes to deal with that dreaded roof leak

I wonder how much that cost the guy. A Line-X spray for my Silverado ran me about $500 a few years ago.

Good point, Iraq. Might be $$$. Wonder abt the long haul. LineX can add a UV inhibitor so a good argument. But liners usually applied to a solid surface, on a rubber membrane. ??? Doesn't LineX do colors? White? Interesting to see if it catches on. My bed was sanded to give the liner something to "bite". The rubber???

They have a product but I think it is engineered for rv roofs, Here: Rhino Linings Corporation | News - Coatings Company Press
is a link to it.

I've heard a lot of good things about the Rhino lining. I wish that manufacturers would offer it as an option in lieu of rubber.

Excel did offer the rhino coated roof as an option, but they shut down. Another similar product that'd I'd probably choose over rhino is at www.rvroof.com. That's all they do, which is why I prefer them a little more. It aint cheap, neither one of them. Can run an easy $100 plus a foot, but, once done it's done and your roof maintenance goes to practically nothing. We were going to have our full time fifth wheel sprayed, then of course decided to get out of full timing and sold the rig. I can't remember exactly, but to have the whole 40 foot roof done, plus all 4 slide roofs, it was north of $6000.

When I had the truck bed done with Line-X, I asked the guy if they could do it in white. "Sure, we'll do any color you want-it's an additional $200.00" I said black would be just fine! As it turned out, I like the black better anyway. Black sure would absorb a lot of heat on a trailer roof though, maybe enough to affect the efficiency of the A/C. I have heard that they use Line-X for the flight decks of aircraft carriers. Don't know if that's true or not. Since the last time I had one installed and this time, I had to sign a statement that I understood that "once Line-X is installed, it CANNOT BE REMOVED." Apparently a result of someone that decided that they didn't like it.
