Does anyone see a potential problem with Line-X'ing your roof in lieu of treating it every year?

let me start by saying I ran a auto bodyshop for several years and we had to use linex and rhino liners depending on what the damaged truck had when wrecked.IMHO the rhino is better its more flexable and can be sprayed thicker and I think would do better. again just my personal opinion. we had more issues with the linex but I am sure there will be others that disagree with me. everybody has an opinion.

I wonder how much heavier it is versus the original coating?

As was mentioned, the flexibility would be my primary concern.

They do have a proper spray on roof system available. I think that it runs about $125 a linear foot.

Sun Shield Coating

I'm not sure if this is the exact brand I used on mine, but one like it.

I was always going to do my old rig and never got to it, so we did this new one right away. Figured the R factor in our heat up here would be nice as well as the longevity.

My Dad manages an RV shop and this product or a similar one is what they repair the roofs with instead of stripping the rubber off, prepping , and replacing.

You might hit up the search button I know this topic has come up many times on other parts of the forum; usually a lot of pro and con discussion but I can't recall ever reading from somebody that actually did it.

I saw something like this at the Tampa Show. They said it weighs about 150 pounds when installed. I have to say it looked pretty cool and when I need to re-do my roof I might just go this way.

I have an 99 24' class c and am looking into the Line X as well. Talked to our local Line X guy today and they have the regular bedliner spray for around $8 a square foot. They also have a softer liner for an additional $3 square foot. No matter which one you use there is a lifetime warranty agains cracking. On the Rhino liner web site they do show theirs being used on Rv roofs as well. Does anyone have any more info. on this idea?
