T-1350 Roof Coating

I know this has been addressed here before, but I can't find it for whatever reason.

I'm wanting to coat the aluminum roof on our '88 T-1350. What's a "good" coating for sealing and protection that won't cost an arm or a leg? We're only looking at about a 72 square foot area. (Something from Home Depot or Lowes, maybe?)

The RV dealers here are pretty high on this kind of stuff, and it's tough to find an appropriate quantity for the job. It doesn't sit well with me to buy a 5-gallon can at 2 or 3 times the cost of only using a gallon or two - especially if it lasts 5 or 10 years. Will the rest of it be good in 5 or 10 years so I can use more of it - sitting in my garage that gets well over 110 in the summer and below zero in the winter? I doubt it.

I don't have any leak or damage issues, but do want to get it coated with *something* before Winter. I don't know when it may have been done in the past. We've only had it since August last year.

Thanks,
-Dale

I used this stuff on my T-1350 & it worked great. I didn't have any leaks but wanted to put a good seal on the roof. I scrubbed the roof first to remove any dirt, grime Etc. Once dry I just painted this stuff on. It has fibers in it to give the coating strength. I put a heavy coat around all the roof vents. After 7 days I put on another coating. It works great. I bought a gallon & there is still a little left after 2 coats. FYI I don't think it works on rubber roofs

This stuff is available locally at a fairly do-able price. Anybody know if this is any good?

Thanks for the info on the Pro Flex RV roof repair stuff. I'll look for it locally and online. How do I know if my roof is rubber vs aluminum?

I'll bet if you look at a mobile home material supplier you'll find a good price on that stuff. They coat their roofs about every other year.
