    White Siliconized Elastomeric RV Roof Coating

    Has anyone used the White Siliconized Elastomeric RV Roof Coating on the roof of their RC Plane Trailer, I understand that it seals the roof and repeals the heat a little bit, is this stuff worth the trouble?

    RE: White Siliconized Elastomeric RV Roof Coating

    As a the owner of a travel trailer I do have a little experience with the stuff; I can't see why it wouldn't work to for a plane trailer roof, but I also can't see why it would be necessary. If the roof is too dark and absorbs too much heat, I suggest you paint it. If the roof is leaking, I suggest Eternabond tape.

    RE: White Siliconized Elastomeric RV Roof Coating

    Right now the trailer roof has either bare galvanized or bare aluminum with that self leveling caulking on the joints; I thought of painting it as well but figured that siliconized stuff is flexable and would be more durable than paint, not to mention the chance of adherance problm with the paint, and considering the trailer is older, the extra waterproofing it would provide, wouldn't hurt.

    You can take a gallon to your local paint store and get it tinted to what ever color you won't
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skip in sideways, a glass of Malbec in one hand and chocolate in the other. Body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming " Woo Woo, what a ride"

    RE: White Siliconized Elastomeric RV Roof Coating

    I used a product called Snow Seal {same stuff} on my old camper and it does lower the temps a bit. Not enough to write home about but it also gave my old camper a much longer life. I put it on the first time I discovered a leak and got many more years out of it. If it's an older trailer then it is well worth the cost and trouble. The camper was built in 1967 and always stored outside without any cover. It was still in use 7 years ago before I moved and gave up duck hunting and fishing. It was still hot in the summer and cold in the winter inside no mater what. It just didn't leak when it snowed or rained.

    RE: White Siliconized Elastomeric RV Roof Coating

    It will work fine for both lowering solar heat gain and sealing the roof. Make sure you thouroughly clean the roof and apply 2 coats to get a good thick flexible coating. A heavy duty airless sprayer is the best way to apply if you have access to one. The light duty homeowner sprayers will not work well because the material is very thick.

    I don't have a decent Airless sprayer, the area is not that big, I will just roll it on with 3/4" Nap roller like the can instructions have suggested, appreciate all the thread replies.
