Rhino Roof??

I saw an add in an RV magazine by Rhino Liner to use to create a hard roof. Has any done this or heard of anyone doing this?

I've been thinking for some time now that it would be a great idea to rhino or lynex TT roofs. Seems much more supportive and will seal any imperfection a roof has. It must be a cost thing for the factory. The coatings have flex and elasticity, so there shouldn't be any cracking. I'll be going that route when it's roof replacement time.

My only thought is weight, anyone know the weight per sf on an average psreynon liner thickness? Shouldn't be any worse than adding the weight of an air conditioner setup

I just remember reading the very long post with pics on what the man did to his roof. It is on RV.NET. He said the added weight was hardly anything and the roof was a lot hardier than the rubber one he had.

if you think about it even if it added 50 lbs you spreading that 50 lbs over a big area not one spot . the weight wouldn't be a factor .

I like the idea. My ###### liner has held up very well even with all the abuse it has taken in my pickup. Would need white though, black would be way to hot. As far as the weight it has got to be way lighter then the EPDM rubber roof stuff. Have you ever moved a roll of that stuff?

A local camper fix it shop in my area told me that he just bought a sprayer to apply the lining to the roof. So yes they do put it on campers. It is definitely a great idea.

It would make the roof nearly maintenance free

It is an option on Excel campers, which are arguably the best campers on the market. I they are doing it then it works well, is heave, and expensive.

Was at the Florida RV show this week and there were several vendors there that were displaying their Rhino products. Gave me a ball park of $4000 to do a 38" MH like mine.
