Why would you want to do that? Is it leaking somewhere? A lot of coatings used aftermarket on M/H roofs will flake or blow off and cause more problems than it fixes. I personally would not use any type of paint. A lot of people use cool seal, but I feel it is wasted time and money. If my M/H is leaking somewhere on the roof I would attack those leaks and not blanket the whole thing. This could be dependant on many years the coach has been setting in the sun and if there is some type of prior roof damage.

Bob:

To seal your roof, or repair a leak, Dicor seems to be the choice of many. After 1.5 years of RV'n, I noticed the Dicor had cracks, gaps, and otherwise crusted. I pulled all of the old Dicor out, and brushed in ProFlex. I noticed the ProFlex has not cracked, degraded, or otherwise needed any maintenance.

The roof is fiberglass, and should accept any marine grade paint. I wondered about painting mine a metalic silver, to reflect more sun (ergo heat).
