Mother of our dear Lord, this stuff is sticky!

"On the eighth day, God enjoyed his rest and decided that man should rest also, and so he created the RV. Knowing that the roof on the RV would eventually leak because man was created foolish enough to forget to put a cover on his RV in the hot sun, God created EternaBond Roof Seal tape. And God saw that it was good." - Somewhere in Genesis
OK, so is it that good? Do you want to seal the fine cracks in the EDPM roof rubber on your RV - FOREVER? Do you want something that you can put up there and forget about it - no fear of the bond disintegrating over time and flying off onto the overly - cautious Volvo driver following behind you? Do you want to end the seepage of the ever-so-evil-RV-destroying rain water into your coach? Do you want something to firmly attach your rocket boosters to the space shuttle before leaving the atmosphere*?
Then this is the product for you! This stuff is probably the stickiest stuff I have ever run into - and I have children! You cut it to length, peel the clear backing off and firmly press it onto the roof of your coach. You can use a roller for more firm pressure, I suppose, if you want to buy a roller you will never use again, but believe me, it is sticky enough with just hand pressure. Once you press it down, it's there. Eternally.
This stuff is so sticky that when applying it I accidentally got it stuck to itself - sticky sides together -- what to do? Just pull it apart?
No can do - if you try that it mercilessly mocks your efforts, leaving you in a defeated crying heap of weakness.
This product has one job, and it does it well.
The white side is a nigh-impenetrable water tight cover over a gray semi-squishy adhesive that supposedly bonds to the surface. Im not going to go up there and test the molecular process at work and endlessly debate the difference between bonding and sticking - to me it's sticky - darn sticky. I have no doubt that it will repair whatever mess you have up there and then some. My guess? It will probably outlast the roof around it until you are left with no rubber roof save for the parts you stuck this onto.
My plan is to slowly cover every inch of the roof on my 34' Bounder over the next few years until it is completely covered. Seriously - if these guys made a peel-and-stick roof covering in one piece I'd use it, except for the fact that I fear I would be in real danger of becoming stuck to it during installation, leaving myself helpless on the roof of my RV like a wayward mosquito caught in the web of a black widow, or a criminal caught in that spider-individual's web of justice, resigned to my fate of imobility.
This comes in different widths and I like the 4". Ok, I've only ever used the 4", but I do like it. It covers seams well with a fair amount of overlap. I considered the 6" and the 2", but I bought the 4". Fifty feet of this stuff is a lot, but at the same time you might be surprised how many little cracks and stuff you have up there, plus it is good to have some on hand in case of future leaks, or the sudden need reattach an arm after a bazaar kayaking accident. (Am I the only kayaker here? Thought not!) You may find yourself wanting to use on good seams to because, well, it just seems a heck of a lot stronger when you do.
Yes, it's pricey, and yes, I'd like it to be cheaper, but it is worth every penny, and I don't spend my money unscrupulously, at least not since the incident with the goat farm back in the nineties. (They TOLD me it was the wave of the future!)
Anyway, buy it, stick it to things, make them waterproof, but beware - you don't get any take-backs, so be sure it is exactly where you want it!
