Hi Malcolm; Yesterday I have ordered two gallons of Duraback in sand color and smooth finish. I will be coating aprox 120 sq/ft and it was the manufacturer reccomendation to purchase two gallons for two coats. Unfortunately the selection of light colors is not good. White and beige [which is designated as sand color] is it for the choice. Cost with shipping from NJ wearhouse to PA is $284.40. In mid December we are going to apply it and follow up with report and pics. Thanks, "Boatdoc"

There are actually a bunch of us orygunions here in the forums. My challenge continues to be getting to the point where I can be a mobile Airstream owner. I still have a way to go on my remodeling and not a lot of time available to work on it for now.

I hope it works out well for you and will be very interested in hearing more about your experiences with it. I suppose philosophically that it would be possible to get other colors by starting with the white and adding pigment. I wonder if Duraback can make any recomendations on that topic?

No question this thread has a lot of wheels spinning. This is major and could address a huge host of Airstream renovation ideas.

Hi Malcolm; Another setback took place past Monday. We have received the two galons of urethane coating for the bathroom. Label on the cans spoke about rubber granules so I called the company and questioned the product. It turned out I got the non skid stuff. My wife would surley appreciate the scuffed elbows while showering. So it is back to waiting for another shipment. The exterior of my Argosy got a second coat of Pettit Easypoxy below the beltline in Grand Banks Beige and it looks great, if I can say so myself. Most likely this weekend the plumbing project will be started. Thanks, "Boatdoc"

Boatdoc, Would you be able to post a few pictures? I follow what you are doing closely and would like to know that what I picture in my head is really what you are doing. I also would love to drive up and see your project if it is possible. I live just outside of Baltimore and the drive could not be much more than an hour... Will you be able to use your aluminum tent by april? The WDCU would love to have you come to it's premeire rally The Cherry Blossom Festival Rally April 10- 13

there must be more...

Um, just wondering how this worked out. Am trying to come up with a rework in the bathroom tub/shower and am very curious how this turned out. I'm thinking it might be just the ticket. The other possibility is "Showercork" tiles, but truth be told this rhino idea sounds more appealing.

Hi stonyfork; Sorry that I have dropped the continuation of info on my bathroom remodel. I guess I was just too happy to be camping a lot last year. In the end I have rolled on white Durabak in two coats. Stuff is awesome and easy to clean according to my wife. No cracks or separations at any panel joints. The Rhino Liner dealer wanted a lot of money to spray it on. This is why I have gone with Duraback. 3/16 nap synthetic wool tight nap is a must for smoother application. Have two rollers ready because you will not clean up the used roller. Good luck. "Boatdoc"

Boatdock, this sounds like a great idea. I saw a tear drop trailer a couple of years ago that had been coated on the outside. It looked great and was waterproof.

I'll be lurking here too. My shower stall looks pretty bad and I thought there is no recourse until now.

I saw "rubber granules" mentioned above in conjunction with bedliner urethane. I have used a product exactly like this to recoat the tonneau cover on my Tundra and the rubber granules add "LOTS" of texture to the urethane coating. Correction, "LOTS AND LOTS" of texture. It was good for the tonneau cover as it hides some inperfections in the surface, but would not be something you would want for a shower. Shoot it without the granules and you'll be a lot happier. I shot mine using an undercoating gun and the results were good. As for white spray bedliner, the urethane coating components make it almost impossible to get white, but you can do as I did (and as directed by the urethane supplier) with my bedliner, shoot the lightest color liner they have then shoot or roll on a good urethane boat paint like Awlgrip for the white finish coat. Works great.

I'll be looking into the Durabak. Still trying to determine what I want to do. I know the entire backshelf has to come out and the sink needs to be larger, maybe a vessel sink on a tall narrow cabinet/base with maybe a low shelf extending along the back wall to meet the corner behind the toilet. I'm planning to keep the tub, but modifying it some and that is where the Rhino or Durabak, or showercork will come in to play. I want to keep the weight as low as possible, since it is the back wall in a 70's rear bath model (Sovereign)
