There are products like this called Dynamat or Fatmat, etc. These are self adhesive aluminum foil rubberized asphalt-based adhesive systems. Essentially you lay these products on walls, floors, inside door panels etc. My 2003 Dodge Ram was a loud rattle trap, I couldn't hear myself think.
Dynamat is the same product, just 2-4x more expensive (or more). I used this, USEAL BAND 6 IN., instead and wow, what a HUGE difference. 2 rolls did all 4 doors and I can't believe the results. The doors close with a thud, cars pass by quietly and I can hear myself talk in conversational tones now. Plus, no shipping or handling costs, just run by Home Depot and pick up a few rolls.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by gwb2 GREAT FOR A MOTORHOME ROOF.(SURVIVED EXPANSIONS & CONTRACTIONS & FREEZING)
>>>>>I used this TAPE to seal a "crimped" seam in a metal motorhome roof---a problematic situation because of wide temperature swings (hot sun in summer, and snow in winter, with some "ponding" after storms), and because of the use of "butyl" sealant in the mechanical seams when originally manufactured (which "bleeds" even 30 years later, damaging painted roof coatings, and this also prevents caulk from staying stuck down there for more than a few months). This TAPE has held up well for over a year now, and still looks new. The under-surface ("asphalt-based" portion) is still malleable, so one wonders how well stuck down it is--but IT IS--so far). I think that the KEY APPLICATION TECHNIQUE here (other than cleaning the deck with soap and water, and then with a solvent too --I used acetone, available in small metal containers) is to repeatedly FORCE the tape onto the substrate. I used a SMALL (really narrow) roller and my body weight, over and over, back and forth to set this Tape in place (most such adhesives now are Pressure-Activated, so do work hard at this step!). I then pounded the entire thing down, back and forth, with a hammer, to do everything I could to activate that adhesive! So far, it looks as if that worked well!
>>>>>As for the cost, I have seen many "specialty" products that cost a LOT MORE, and have not held up this well. The only comparable item I have used--"Eternabond", and that does what it sounds like--it IS permanent, even though black-only, without a metallic layer on top. These are side by side on this roof, and BOTH so far move well with the expansion and contraction of this roof. [The Eternabond is damaged easily by scuffing or by tools.] We'll see as time goes on further.... Can they BOTH be ETERNAL?

Rated 1 out of 5Â by kohme Didnt hold on trailer roof as stated in description.
I removed the old non silicone based sealer that was on the roof, used a wire brush on a grinder to remove all previous calking. Next i used a solvent based cleaner - then dried the area with a clean rag.
Things looked great however after one trip with the trailer the tape started to peal away from both itself and the trailer. It was so poorly created that the silver even the silver foil was pealing away from the tape itself in several areas.
The directions state to use a 3 inch overlap on areas that it should bond to each other - even that pealed up.
it was put on mid 80'sF and allowed to set for 3 weeks before rain or the trailer was used.
Now i have a mess -
Distributor will not stand behind it -
Many other better products out - i was trying to save some time with this and get it from the HD.
