Recommendations for Seam Sealer

I am looking for recommendations for seam sealer for the roof. If you have used the type that come in a caulking tube, please let me know which brand and model number. How has it held up? How easy was it to apply?

I'm planning on using Eternabond Webseal then painting over it. Haven't used it yet, but saw it mentioned in threads here.

3M Seam Sealer is an OEM grade product and as good as it gets. Is paintable and will last the life of the vehicle. I ordered mine online here...

I highly recommend using Ames Maximum Stretch paint and their seam tape. Used it on my bus because I was also concerned that it could leak. This stuff is designed to flex and is made for metal roofs. It is a strange material but after going through a brutal snowy and wet winter it worked as expected. It also cools the bus down a lot in the summer. I have pictures in my album and more details in my build thread.

The paint and seam tape total was like 200 and I hit all of the seams on the roof, around the vents, and the edge seams as well.

I used 3M Dynatron 550 seam sealer to fill the seat/screw holes in my floors and to fill in the seams between floor panels so there is nowhere for moisture to hide.
