Talking protectall

i have tried "protect all" bought at camping world and it seems to have worked fine on my bambi. the walbernize is too difficult for me to get and much too expensive.

protect all has UV blocking and i guess i will find out how well it works in about 5 years. check back :-)

My 29' has new clearcoat by the previous owner.

Various postings on this web site have convinced me that Walbernize is a proven and airstream reccomended product.

At a $100 per foot or more, I have no interest in experimenting.

$12.00 per bottle is a expensive only if it doesn't work.

I'm sold on Walbernize. I used the Super Seal product on the '01 Safari. From my experience we could get 3 coatings per bottle on the 27' trailer. I've used Protect All on my SOB and from an application standpoint Walbernize is just as easy to use as Protect All.

check out a couple of these threads on polish and sealants.
I used "Liquid Glass" sealant and polish found online and then bought at Pep Boys. The stuff looks awesome, shiny and hard as its name would imply. Very easy to apply to a clean prepped surface ( no recent wax). So far I am very pleased, and prior to that I used liquid turtle Wax, and some other harder carnauba waxes, all marked clear coat safe.

glass wax
