I need a new roof, either a new rubber roof or Flex-Armor or RV-Armor. Your opinions especially those who have the spray on which is what I am leaning towards.

If you saw the condition of my 20 year old truckbed liner, you'd consider this too. Rhino or LineX.

Depending on price, and how long you plan on keeping the RV. I believe the Flex or Rv armor is a lifetime guarantee . Whereas the rubber roof is not . If it were me ,I think I'd go the spray .

If you plan on keeping your RV for more than a couple more years, have the old rubber roof AND plywood removed and inspect for further damage. IMHO, the best "flexible" roofing is TPO. Pay the extra and get the "commercial grade" (60 mil). TPO is more durable than EPDM and if installed properly does not require annual caulking/sealing.

Yes, commercial grade TPO costs more than standard grade EPDM.

We have the RV Flex Armor spray roof. Lifetime warranty & it's thick. We used DFW RV Roof in Denton, Tx. You have to take it to an authorized installer as it's a process but worth it.

Isn't there any rubber left to use a coating? I've had such good luck with Henry coatings, for <$100, I wouldn't do anything else. Craig

Is the RV stored inside or outside? If outside consider which coating has the best UV protection.. i am presently looking at Invincible Roof because of that very issue.

I plan on keeping this rv for several years and it is stored outside, leaning towards the Flex Armor due too its thickness, increased R- value
