Walbernize Equivalent?

I am hoping to get some clearcoat protection on my ’67 Overlander before a planned trip to Florida, and had hoped to get a coat of Walbernize RV Super Seal applied beforehand. Problem is that I have to mail order all things Airstream.

As I understand it, the product is applied, allowed to dry to a haze, then buffed off.

Wouldn’t any wax, rated safe for clearcoat, from the local auto parts store do just as well? Does anyone recommend a product which may be more easily available?

Thanks,
Tom

I use Liquid Glass sealant which I bought at pep boys. Its 17 bucks a can, but one can did my Airstream twice, three coats each time. Stuff is hard as a rock when its on. The sun bakes it harder.
Wax works but doesn't last long.

Would RejeX work to seal in a trailer that has been high sheen polished? Or would the liquid glass mentioned above do the trick? I have never used either product and would be interested in your full comments, or anyone else that has sealed a polished trailer.

not sure about how long the LG would seal your highly polished rig, but on my "still very shiny,but not a mirror" one.....it has kept the shine with a few rinses and only one wash since last summer.
I recently sealed a non clearcoated area that I polished, and will see how it holds up.
If you are going to be in the semi-tropical sun, and ocean salt air, I would want to put on two or three coats, as directed on the can. I live in Georgia, and have made two Fla trips since applying the stuff.

Thanks,

I am in Northern Mississippi, (Hot and Humid) but no salt air so I am safe there. Most of my travels will be to the north but in the central states so I don't think Salt Air will be a problem except for the visit to Orlando (Disney, Epcot, etc.) next year, but even that will be only a week or so.
Do you suggest a coating 3 times to insure its durability?
About how long does the LG last before you need to redo the coating?
Also is it a wipe on, let dry, wipe off type of material?

Thanks again....................

Okay I read the specifications on all 3 and the RejeX wins inmy opinion. It seems to be better than the Walbernize and btter than the Liquid Glass. At least I decided to give it a try and ordered today.
