Thanks  I will keep that in mind because that would really seal the top after all your vets etc was installed.

Hey Rod, How close are you to the purchase? Grin

Guys we all do it different it was me doing a bus I would use the hot spray on bed lining materail on the roof it has a r valve, sound deaden properties,structural strength , tuff as nails and never need maintenance can be sprayed on smooth and leak proof for ever and not that much difference in price.

good luck

I am going to do the bedliner material in white as well.  If you look close in the pic you can see the whitish/grayish streaks from the roof paint breaking down.  I did my fishing boat with gray and it was the best thing I ever did.  I did it 6 years ago and it is still in great shape.  Before you did not want to walk on the deck in bare feet.  Now no problem at all.

here is an E mail I got from the company that makes kool seal:

Thank you for contacting KST.  We appreciate your inquiry. Snow Roof and
Kool Seal are separate lines of product from the same company.

Snow Roof is the highest quality product that we sell.  It's known as the
best in this line.  Kool Seal is a great line and may be less expensive.

If the roof of your motor home is rubber, then I would recommend Snow Roof
Elastoseal first.   Once primed with Elastoseal you can use Patching Cement
and Reinforcing Grid to patch all of the seams, vents and protrusions.
Then apply the Snow Roof White Elastomeric.

Ace Hardware, Sherwin-Williams, Do It Best Hardware and True Value Hardware
are the leading retailers in your area.  For pricing, please contact them.

Thank you in advance for your patience.  Someone will be in touch soon.

I emailed the TC Ceramic people and got these;

If sprayed with a airless sprayer, yes, it will have a smooth finish.

> First of all let me apologize for the delay in getting back to you.

> TC Ceramic has one of the best binder systems on the market for a product of this type.  It will adhere to just about any surface and stay for years.  The one thing I would caution you though is that if the surface is fairly slick, it may be a good idea to scuff it up a bit before applying our product.  Other than that, clean and dry is all you need.  A simple pressure wash and dry and the apply.

> AT 15 mils of thickness (15/1000 of an inch) which is all you need to block 99% of solar gain, you'll get about 60 square feet per gallon.  It cost $49.50 per gallon and to do the roof it would take about 8 gallons.  (considering that this is a normal size bus)  We sell our product in 5 gallon containers.
