Rhino Liner

Went to an RV show and got a quote on having our size camper roof Rhino Lined. We were told once we have it RL we wouldn't have to caulk the roof.
The price was really good for our size camper.
One of our favorite campground has limbs that scrape the top of the camper so my fear is ripping the rubber roof.
Anyone know if the Rhino Liner RV Roof is a good product? Anyone had any experience with it??

We decided Line x over rhino lining. In FL, it seemed the rhino liner faded more than the line x liner. Also, I wanted to be able to slide things in the truck and was concerned about damaging the rhino liner doing this since is was more a rubber liner. We did this over two years ago and it was one of the best decisions we made for our truck.

I don't think that you can say one liner is better than the other. What you have to consider is how you use your truck; what your criteria are. Line-X is more fade resistant if that worries you. Line-X is less easily damaged if you do something like haul rock and shovel it out of the bed of your truck. BUT, rhino liner will fix any "chips" lifetime. Rhino has a much more skid-resistant surface.

I buy Rhino because of the skid resistance. When I come to a stop, I don't what to hear my chainsaw, gas can, and tool box skidding forward; hard to retrieve then and possibly could damage the truck or the saw. I'm on my 3rd Rhino liner (meaning 3 different trucks).

Our Line-x has a lifetime warranty on our pickup and is skid resistant - nothing moves easily !!!

Rhino lining is certainly great stuff in a pickup bed - have had it for years. On the roof not to sure. It would certainly void the waranty on the original material.
I think the membrain roof is floating and helps with the seal on the sides. Years ago on a Winnebago I had a 1 piece metal roof that would constantly pop the seals with the sides when the weather changed. A Rhino liner would certainly be a lot stiffer and heavier.

I'd check with my insurance a manufactures about it. I would think that if it were a good thing repairs would go to that in a heartbeat - cheaper and simpler than replacing the membraine roof.

They are talking about a Rhino lining that is made specifically for RV Roofs. Not the same material as truck beds.
