Does anyone make a roll on similar to this that you can do yourself?

Quite a job but it sure sounds like you are getting something that will be just short of bullet-proof.
Your pic #2, have they sanded the paint/caulk from the aluminum trip next to the roof? Looks shiny.
Looking forward to the end results. Thanks for posting, Ed!
They don't remove the luan because it is bonded to the roof joists and insulation. It would be a disaster to try to remove it. They overlay it with new, paint the new overlay luan with a primer and then spray the roof on.

With the new piece of luan, the first layer of the roof material is 3/16" thick, then a color coat on top of that is 1/16" thick. The overall thickness of the new roof will be just a hair short of 1/4".

The corner flashing is roughed up so the roof material will stick better.

Correct. The old luan is bonded to the roof and would be almost impossible to get off.

Wish the wife would let me open windows at home when it rains. She likes the rain, but not the traffic noise.
I like rain on the roof sound too, but with hearing aids now there are times the TV is awfully hard to hear. A little reduction in rain noise would be ok with me.

Don't know. There is another company that does a roll on roof and it is a bit cheaper, but it goes on at room temperature. The spray on hits the roof at 200 degrees and bonds much much better.

One of the best investment I made is a cordless headset for listening to tv.

I have a blue tooth wireless that plugs into the audio output on the TV and is wireless direct to my hearing aids. I couldn't survive without it.

I agree on the "best investment".

Maybe something like this. Gets great reviews but looks like a royal PITA.

With my luck, I'd have that stuff ALL OVER the place! OTOH, the price is A LOT easier to swallow than what'll be on Ed's invoice for this job. OTOOH, you get what you pay for...

The rv flex armor roof weighs 0.5 pounds/sqft. So on my roof: 8' x 35' = 280 x 0.5 = 140 pounds. I can certainly live with that. I do have a luan overlay which add some, but still no problem in my mindm
