have you worked out how much all that would add to the base weight?

Not totally. Sealing the seams from the outside won't give any appreciable weight gain, using the proper stuff.

lizard skin is advertised at .1lb per square foot at proper thickness. Figure about 500sf of the stuff gives me 50lbs, that doesn't factor in the windows, door, access panels, roof vents and other places that will reduce the amount used. But I may have to look for a different option, hadn't noticed the price before.... OUCH! $100 per gallon, and only about 25sf coverage per gallon. Total non-option at that price.

I have done two truck beds in Line-X and my brother has one done in Rhino. The most obvious difference is in the look of the products. Line-X is a smooth, even looking coating that is like a heavy sand and it does come in colors. The Rhino looks more rubbery and reminds me of splattered paint out of a malfunctioning spray gun. From everything I have heard, they are both pretty good products.

What do all these things off gas into your cabin? Especially when hot.

Probably very little compared to our two cats after a tuna dinner.

Most of the others didn't make money for a TV network.

A lot of things they test don't need testing, but watching them try is entertaining. Don't confuse Mythbusters with education; and now that I think about it, that goes for 99.5% of things carried by mass media.

I have even seen them come to a few conclusions that I was pretty certain were contrary to the science involved.
...and I've seen them butchering statistics. Nevertheless, I think it's great they're getting people to think about myths and ways to test them.

Didn't really plan on using the product inside, and didn't see where that was implied - so what do you mean? Are you saying that an exterior application could emit a gas such that it penetrates to the inside of the coach?

Some others had mentioned spraying the inside of the shell to make it waterproof.

While you are at it a coat of bedliner for the cats might do that job

Once it cures, it probably is not worse than any other product used to seal the seams. Right?
