Spray cans, brush, or roller?

Am going to tackle Tough as Tile in my '75 Tradewind and am wondering which is the best method. It is sold in a spray can or a brush/roll on kit. Which is better? I seem to read a good bit about showing brush strokes, so I am leaning away from that option but I have not read much about the spray can kit. Which smooth roller is best so that it doesn't fall apart while using?...

I used the spray system to redo my bath/shower. Looked pretty good if you are careful and don't let it run. I had one I sanded out and re coated

I was wondering the same thing. Also, is one package enough to do the whole bathroom if you have a tub?

I did the tub with a shelf built onto it. My kit came with 2 cans and I used just over one. So a whole kit might do the wrap roof as well, but not sure.

I was reading the reviews on Amazon for this product, not very flattering overall. I suspect many of the issues were caused by lack of proper surface preparation. It is an epoxy product and surface prep is so very important for epoxy to set properly. Some based on high expectations and perceptions that were not met. All agreed that overspray was an issue due to the very fine spray and wide distribution of the nozzle. My shower/sink has turned a sort of puke looking yellow over the years and could use a recoating.

Yes, prep is very important, and I sprayed the tub in the trailer after taking everything else out. I couldn't get the darn thing out the door. I had good luck with mine. been 4 years now.

Sunday looks like it is going to be my day. The instructions say to give yourself 4 hours uninterrupted to do it, so I figure after church till dark should do it for me. (at least 9 hours). I am doing it all still installed, so I will be painting over seams. How does this stuff do with all the motion of a trailer being painted over seams. Will the paint crack at these spots if it "fills" an area that has been caulked to seal a seam?

I would try to get as much caulk out as possible. Then you can re-caulk it.
