New RPOD Owner, roof help

Hello all!!
Just bought a 2010 RPOD 173T last night.
Love the space, the size, and tows easily.
I would like to seal the roof, does anyone have a recommendation on a sealant to use on this style camper?
TIA

The roof is fiberglass.

Dicor is what is recommended.

I have no experience with the product you mentioned.

I will say that an area you have to be particularly diligent about is that plastic add-on with the lights at the rear part of the roof. If not properly sealed it will leak like a sieve. It also has a tendency to warp up exasperating the problem.

Seal your roof once and forget about it ... forget the lap sealants that will fail...

use Eternabond
