Some one has mentioned to me use of the truck bed liner on the roof. Is that a good idea? What are possible problems?

Use for what? After all it is going to flimsy, and the side will flop around, plus catch air. and it might be too high, and catch bridges

Why would someone want to put bed liner on their roof? Its black so it would absorbe a lot of heat and it isn't made as a water proofing. If someone spent a lot of time on the roof, it would be pretty slip resistant but there are a lot of better products to coat a roof with.

They are probably talking about spray-on type. Here is the info from Line-X brand.
Line-x for RV
It comes in many colors.

There is also a company called RVarmor which is a roll on product

I read an article where an individual put the bed liner material on the roof and over the radius of the side down to the awning rail. It was to go on the area where the clear coat had deteriorated. He bought a kit with truck bed liner material, the material was made specifically to roll on and came in a variety of colors to closely match the color of the coach. The kit included thinner, and rollers to use. It included literally everything needed to apply it along with instructions not to use any other.. it specified two coats , the second applied shortly after the first.. the picture he included looked pretty good. He did it because his coach was about ten years old, he didn’t want to spend the money to have it done professionally. Looked like a great idea to me. My coach has had the clear coat redone and it needs to be done again. I don’t have the info on the supplier as I write this but am very tempted to try it.

two travelers,
Since many are clueless that this system exists, here's a link:

http://www.sandiegorvcenter.com/rhino.php

I witnessed this system being applied. Without a doubt, it, BY FAR, is the best roof an RV could ever have. It's not "flimsy", it's not gonna "catch bridges". It's approximately 3/16" of an inch thick. It reduces noise immensely. It also reduces air conditioning requirements due to the fact that it reflects a considerable more amount of the suns heat than a regular RV roof, no matter what kind, does. It's LIFE TIME WARRANTIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's also PHENOMENALLY TOUGH! Tree branches are no match for it. Not that all that many people attempt to rub up against tree branches on purpose but, none the less, it happens and, you're not gonna hurt this stuff, no matter how hard you try. It comes in colors too, at a bit more of a cost. It essentially IS a sprayed on truck bed liner only adjusted and adapted to work on an RV roof. Take a look at the video.

I believe Terryallan is referring to the one piece plastic truck bed liner inserts rather than the spray on roof coatings.

Yes can be had in any color including white.
However I agree, why use it on the roof.
