I might have if I had enough 4" eternabond to do the job. That and my legs/knees could not take more than the couple of hrs I put in yesterday.

Of course!

newRVer, what I did with my TT was I bought a 6" x 50' roll, cut off 2 - 8'6" pieces for the front and rear seams, then sliced the rest so I had 2 - 3" x 33' rolls for the sides. I still need about 15' of 4 inch for around the vents and skylight. I'll do that next spring.

I guess I could do that as well, i.e. cut the 6" down to a smaller width. When it gets a bit cooler I might try to cut a piece down the middle with a sharp razor to see how much work that requires. I'm thinking that has the eternabond gets colder and hardens a bit, maybe it would be less sticky and cut easier.

If you have access to a band saw you can part that roll very quickly.
Travel safe

Did ours last year around all roof seams with the 6" tape and it's holding up very well. I applied it on a very hot day (upper 80's).

I doubt that, Eternabond is very sticky even at cold temperatures. It will gum up a saw blade very quickly unless you can find one without teeth.

I had bought two roll's of 6" eternabond but after giving it some more thought I only used the one 6" roll for the end caps/corners and if I decide to do the sides then that will be next season and I will probably use 4" eternabond instead of 6".

PS. It was probably good that I did this in the fall as the cooler temp helped make the eternabond more workable. Also, if anyone is going to do the same project, I now have a 50' x 6" roll of eternabond that I no longer need and would be willing to part with for a few $'s.
Need to buy Eternabond 6" tape. Interested if still wanting to sell yours.
