Maybe so maybe not.... I think when it gets down to the "one is more flexible than the other" (when applied to a OSB base over a 30' span), it becomes a discussion similar to "blue Dawn is better/not better than Dawn Ultra or Dawn Platinum".... They're the same chemical composition with less carrier agent, much like Line-X is the same poly-urea as Flex Armor, just a different color and less "curing agent" so it sets up "more rubbery". If you go to a Line-X dealer, take a look at their samples, it's a "thinner coating" that's half as thick as Rhino Liner, but not quite as flexible, although you can easily fold it in half without breaking. They're essentially the same coating material, applied with slightly different techniques and chemical carriers, which gives a slightly different outcome. Essentially, it looks like one is marketed for truck beds, one is marketed for RV roofs. Similar to "semi gloss latex" and "satin latex", one is marketed for bathrooms and one is marketed for bedroom, but both essentially the same latex paint....

New roof

[QUOTE=HIDE-EE;315166]So I just got back from a trip and was getting ready to take the fifth wheel back to storage when I looked up and noticed the corner of the roof on the right side looked different. I got on the roof to find I apparently got too close to a tree and it tore the rubber roof right on the corner. About 2 or 3 feet is torn. I donít see any other damage it was on the right side closer to the front but no damage to the cap or awning. I didnít hear anything and really donít even know when it happened. Iím calling the dealership and insurance tomorrow but wondering how it might get fixed? Can they patch it or am I getting a new roof?😐[/QUO

I did the same thing to the corner of my rubber roof. It will be a new roof to the tune of $6,100 . I patched it while we were on the road that was guaranteed for 25 years. The dealer did not recommend leaving the patch because it was on the corner. I think yours will be the same as mine.
