I wonder if it would make it through the 11' 8" train trestle?

Funny you mention that- the low lying tree branches were beating the hell out of the load on that roof rack!

My low headroom shorty scrapes LOTS of branches.

I've been on more than a couple bus roofs and you can see lots of battle scars up there.

So...would Henry's be a good choice then? Or should I go with that DIY bed liner...at least high center?

I personally HATE both those options.
Either flat/semi-gloss Rustoleum or actual automotive grade paint are the only ways I do it.
elastomeric looks like crap and traps all sorts of dust. It flake off and has a rubbery surface feel to it. Tree branches will play hell on it.
Just seam seal up the roof and paint it.

Simple enough...so keeps heat reflective white as an option

Flat or satin white will do wonders for reflecting the heat.
