Has anyone tried this Dicor liquid rubber paint?



My rubber roof has lost its white layer and I hear that this is the way to go. What do you all think ? See my roof below :

I was considering this on my previous trailer which I just traded in, seems like a good choice.

We used Liquid Roof on a previous unit slide roof for a small tear - covered the whole slide roof

It went on like thick paint and self leveled - very durable and smooth easy to clean

Haven't used Dicor but last year I used EPDM liquid roof (google it & see what you think) on my class C. Not cheap but great stuff, it's like a brand new roof. Whatever you use take your time and follow directions.
Good luck

My Mirada is 15 year sold, I'm getting occasional white streaks on the sides that are coming from the roof. The membrane is in good shape with no leaks, but I suspect its ready to either be replaced or do a re-coat.

How much of the re-coat will you need?

We used a gallon on our slide roof - it was the standard size of sofa and dinette in the slide

The Liquid Roof website has info on how to figure the amount needed

I called Dicor and they told me that for a 24' tt it would take 2 gallons / 2 coats and I would have leftovers.

The seasonal next to me just coated his roof with this. His EPDM was down to all black. This is on a 32 foot 5th wheel.

They did two coats...possibly three I'd have to ask....and used 1.5 gallons.

Be advised you have to properly clean the roof....and be sure you do...and more so clean the black residue off the sides that runs off. They waited a few days and it is a mess to get off.

I think Dicor recommends plastic all the way around the to keep the crud off the trailer sides ( but could be another manufacturer...)....when cleaning and prepping the roof.

I will just have my wife on the ground with the small Ryobi pressure washer rinsing the sides off as I go....when my time comes.

But I will say it looks good. We got up on a ladder and checked out the results and I was impressed. Looks great....like a new roof.

Okay....so nobody asked. How did you manage the photo?! Did you have someone on the overpass waiting? Also, glad to see another Vanner in here!
Have a great day all....
