The paint is not even cracked, let alone chipped off.

We keep that damaged motorhome door, for those that "gotta see it, in person".

As with many things in life, there's the cheap way, and the right way.

Everyone has the choice.

I'm on a ladder right now sanding my Argosy roof in prep for repaint. Not easy, but I like to do it once. my cheap tool store Harbor Freight has a nice little triangle head multi tool for going around the rivets. My question is: has anybody used snowroof on the top? They also have something called mobile roof. (snowroof.com) Seems to me the prep would be less as you are just getting the loose stuff off. Any experience in this? Thanks Tom

I just sanded the top of my 71 31' and am taping off to coat it with SuperTherm. Was a lot of work but will be worth it.

I put Super Therm on the roof of my Excella this summer. Following the suggestion of the local representative, I scrubbed the roof with a green Scotch-Brite pad and dish detergent. Then I rolled on a couple of coats of Super Therm. I also covered the vent lids and the AC cover. I had a little left over from two gallons. Not bad for coating the top of a 34' Airstream.

Sno-Roof is one type of elastometric roof coating. There are many brands, I've used Kool-Seal on a couple, Sno-Roof on a couple, and used Henry's and Heng's on two others. As long as it's properly prepped, any ot=f them will work fine.
There were opinions several years ago this stuff would cause streaks down the sides of Airstreams. I haven't had that problem with any I've done, and our Sovereign has been treated (painted) since early 2009 with no streaks. I guess that opinion has been quietly shelved.

Maybe you could find a Bambi to soak up the rest.
