Fantastic job and I will consider this process for mine.

Thanx Matt, I sort of experimented with the paint. After I had coated the roof 3 times I still had quite  a bit of the elastomeric coating left. I had been toying with the idea of tinting it and painting the whole camper with it.

Since it is latex based I wrote to the company and they said it could be mixed with standard tinting colors. But would void the warranty. So I went to the store and bought a quart of exterior latex paint in a very dark brown color and mixed it then used a roller and a brush to apply. This stuff then turns into a coating that is way more tougher then paint alone and it has the texture of Rhino -Hide they use in pick up trucks.

There was no way I was going to spend thousands for a new pro paint job and besides with a few stripes it does not look so bad anyway. the wheels and grille are just Rustoleum white enamel. Perhaps next year if I get tired of the color I will change the color since any exterior latex will stick to it now.
