We've used both Liquid Glass and Nu-Finish with good results. Nu-Finish gives a bit cloudier finish on our camper, though others report fantastic results with it. Best thing for a polished Airstream is to store it indoors, really extends the time before you need to polish again.

We read turtle wax some where on here before. Warning it leaves a cloudy finish to.
Hum, think ill try the liquid glass next.
Also thinking the big building might be cheaper in the long run.

I bought the Alcoa Aluminum Wheel polish, PDQ Brightener and Sealer, (that's 3 different products) and used them on my Alcoa Forged Wheels. I was super surprised at how long the shine remained after using the pump-style spray sealer.
I wonder if it would do the same for your Airstream?

Just a thought........

Also, Airstream Inc claims it lasts 6 times longer than unsealed polish jobs.
