These are two products I don't find much said about, although both specify that they are good for RV roofs.

Any experience or opinions?

The local Home depot's and Lowes and wally worlds have products that say roofs etc and Rv's are included. But Ive learned that buying a roof product designed for Rv use, (ie. can withstand the elements,wind etc). is better suited then onshelf one size fits all. I deal thru several vendors online when needing to roofcoat.

On a budget I have used walmarts whitecoat on a real clean rv roof (no rust or holes). But have had to recoat it every year. If recoating isnt a problem thats one way to go, But you still have to PREP the surface.

I'm sorry, but what makes any product an "RV approved" product? These ALSO say they are for RVs. What's *different* about these various products? I'm not finding that.

My problem isn't just budget, but I can't find anyone in my area that carries anything else.

Adding my 11 cents,,,, USE only RV approved products. The *other so called universal roof coats are just that. If you want the correct product to do the job. Saving a dollar now just makes you spend 3 times that in the long run. Rule of thumb,,, Do it right the FIRST TIME.

Slum Jack, we've had several negative posts on this product over the years here on GORVs.  Most said that it chips or comes off in "chunks" after a few years and then they cannot get new product to bond; this may be from improper lack of cleaning and a really good prep job.  I guess if an old trailer was only going to be used for storage then maybe I'd use the $20 product vs the $40 bucks more it cost to use real products designed for rvs. Personally I'd ONLY use the rv products. It just ain't worth it.  As usual, prep is the key.  Here's a link to a known company with REALLY good VIDEOS on the bottom right for proper prep LIN
