    BTW, some of you have been doing this before they introduced a special product for it. [;)]

    SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Rhino Linings Corporation, a leading manufacturer and distributor of spray-on protective linings and coatings, is helping to revolutionize the recreational vehicle (RV) repair industry. RV owners and service providers now have an alternative RV roof repair system that costs significantly less than replacing the previous rubber or vehicle roof every few years, requires minimal resources and needs little to no maintenance.

    On Thursday, June 7, 2012, San Diego RV Center will demonstrate a Rhino Eco-Coat application. Rhino Eco-Coat system is a spray-applied, 100 percent solid, hybrid polyurea RV roof restoration system by Rhino Linings. Rhino Eco-Coat monolithic coating contains UV stabilizers and leafing aluminum pigment that forms a long-term barrier against water intrusion. The RV roof coating’s desirable silver aluminum-like finish improves energy efficiency, prevents degradation due to UV sunlight and keeps the coach approximately 20 degrees Fahrenheit cooler. In addition to the reflective properties of the Rhino Eco-Coat system, the RV roof restoration system also offers a lifetime of superior impact and crack resistance.

    “Rhino Eco-Coat has proven to be an excellent RV roof repair and restoration solution,” states Pierre Gagnon, President and CEO of Rhino Linings Corporation. “Our product demonstrations have generated great interest in the RV and insurance industry and are quickly becoming an effective way to educate and introduce RV service businesses, insurance companies and consumers to a cost-effective and long-lasting RV roof repair and restoration solution.”

    The Rhino Linings RV roof restoration coating dries to the touch in seconds and requires few resources.

    To learn more about attending the June 7 Rhino Eco-Coat RV roof restoration demonstration, call Rhino Linings Corporation toll free at 800.422.2603 ext. 6087, or visit www.rhinolinings.com/eco-coat.

    They made it sounds special but it is just the aliphatic polyurethane. You can buy from Grizzly grip or other sources.

    I believe they have formulated the product differently than the other brands. Now there are luxury manufacturers now using the rhino product. The other brands have not reformulated for this long term use. The prior rhino product like the other brands would not adhere long term. So this is a new product specially formulated for rv use.

    I understand the concept of the reflective color, but I'm wondering if it would hurt anything if you painted over it. Once it is sprayed and good and dry, could u paint it a more appropriate color to go with your camper? I am looking into doing this to my pup VERY soon...any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you think this would work on the top of a pop up camper that had ABS cracking and delamination?

    Yes, you should be able to paint over it, but since it's flexible, small cracks in the paint may appear over time.
    Yes, is is probably an excellent coating for ABS roofs. It won't address the delamination, though.
    This stuff is strong! I saw a t.v. show where they blew up a truck with the Rhino coating, and the bed stayed intact!

    I wonder what the difference is between this and the U-Pol product that some of the others on here are using. Will have to look into this also since my Pup will be needing a redo with the restoration that I will be doing this winter.

    My main concern with the Rhino coatings is how much weight it adds to the roof. With an a/c unit on top, I'm afraid of over-stressing the lifting mechanism.

    You're not really adding much weight. The coating might only be 1/8" thick at most.

    Supposedly my roof has this. White in color, feels kinda rubbery. Not nearly as hard as the LineX in my truck bed. Seems like a good idea. But. On mine, while most of the roof has a nice layer the edges where one caulks was thin and in many spots not there! Wound up having to caulk over it anyhow.

    I don't know if it was a case where it flowed off the caulk, or just bad install. But if anyone does this I would check the seams anyhow.

    Hello all,

    This sounds like a great solution to my problem with my old Viking and her constant roof leak. I've used enough silicone to build a house out of with very poor results. Question I have are "has anyone actually used this product and if so how is it working out"??? Is it cold sensitive, I elk hunt in Colorado and my camper see's some cold weather use. Where can I have this product applied?

    Enjoy your holidays and thanks for any replies.

    The roof on my 2001 Coleman Sante Fe was so cracked it was falling off. My BIL just peeled off the whole ABS roof and applied two coats of Rhino Liner to the top. It has been over a year and is holding up great. Since then I have been having a problem with one side of the roof completey going down. There is about an inch gap. Not sure if it had anything to do with removing the ABS or not. I'm on this site to search for answers. Hope this helps.
