Are you saying 16 Oz will do the entire trailer 3-4 times?

I've used Griot's Paint Sealer with very good results. One application at Spring get-ready will do it for the Season. 16oz will last 3-4 applications.

Always use microfiber for polishing/washing, foam pads work great for application.

Great tool for washing the Airstream.

It has for me...

It doesn't take much.

Apply with a foam pad on a Porter Cable Orbital. Remove with microfiber pad on same. 3'ft sections. Nothing on roof but 303 UV Protectant.

My husband just used Liquid Glass (available at many auto parts places) and our 2006 has never looked better! In fact, some fellow campers recently remarked that they thought our AS was new. We had been using Walbernize, but this worked better. We also use it on our truck and car with great results. It was kind of expensive ($29 for a small can, I think), but it lasts long and really creates a nice shine that beads up water. He does not use a buffer, just microfiber rags.

What was the brand name of the "liquid glass"? Meguiar's, black magic, turtle wax etc.?

Actually, Liquid Glass is the brand name. If you Google it, you can find it on Amazon for $19 for a 16 ounce can. We've used it for many years on our vehicles.

Walbernized my 25 footer the other day it took about 2 hours....easy on and easy off.

I still need to do the white part of my roof....I'm thinking of applying it with a paint roller and rubbing it off with a micro fiber window cleaner screwed on the same 6 ft painting pole.

Any suggestions ?

For you guys who like corrosionX the company that makes that product also makes a polymer coating called RejeX. RejeX goes on easy comes off easy and has a great shine. Also will make the plastic rock guards look like new.

We removed the clear coat from our 1987 Soverign and started polishing today. After its all polished can we use the Walbernize product or something else? We don't plan on putting clear coat back on..thanks

If you decide to look into clear coat again, Let me suggest you at least call and talk to the Nyalic product people. Google, NYALIC. I'm beginning to sound like a salesman for them, and I don't mean to. But, I'm using to to cover where fixing filiform corrosion and really like the stuff. Have previously used it on bare aluminum in the marine saltwater environment and the clear coat is bullet proof. It's a polymer, not a lacquer or acrylic, so it will not break down with UV and age. (It takes several months for the product to completely cure out) There are 2 Airstreams in Australia that have been completely restored using it and the company will talk to you about the results. Guess recoating depends on your trailer size. Constant skin maintenance on a Bambi is one thing, a 30 is something else.

I'm a newby and have no point of reference for a benchmark but, I research everything until I kill it.

I just purchased a 6 inch polisher, liquid compound, and one step products from Griot's.

I cannot believe what the liquid complete compound did to my medium scratches on the side of the trailer. I will not have to take it to a pro. Even the rivets took on an entirely new look. And I haven't even applied the one-step yet.

This video helped me tremendously because it explains each TYPE of chemical, which is best, AND which lasts longer. TYPE of chemical, not brand of chemical.

Even if you don't go with Griot's Garage, you will be able to decide what TYPE you will appreciate the most.

Not knowing your end-game, I would not recommend anything as strong as dish detergent to remove dirt.

I'm using Griot's Garage products and buffer at present. Really liking it.
