    The factory (friends) I am parked at are restoring an old gypsy caravan. They are up doing the roof at the moment and it is leaking. They were discussing how to stop it. I seem to recall RV's use a roof paint that I think would be ideal.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

    not necessarily Geo.

    taken from my link.

    Liquid roof can be applied over metal, rubber, fiberglass, fabric, wood and concrete.

    I need stuff to do the complete roof. The current coating is coming away in more places than it is ok. The roof is some kind of metal sheet either steel, tin or ally not sure as I haven't been up.

    We are going to strip the roof back and recoat it properly. They are spending 10's of thousands on the vehicle so no point scrimping on the roof.

    I just remembered Duncans name so have given my mate his phone number. Hopefully he stocks and can advise on the correct roof coating.

    Thank you everyone for the suggestions I have passed them on :thumb:
