Wax for 2006

friends want me to wash, then wax their 2006 Classic, with Walbernize. I use Meguires NTX on my 2004 and it seems to last a long time. My understanding was that Walbernize was for plasticoat Airstreams, (pre 2000) and that the prefinished post 2000 models should use good quality automotive waxes. What should I recommend to them?
Thanks!
Dan

Dan, You can't go wrong with the NTX Tech Wax 2.0. It gives protection against oxidation, corrosion, UV rays and surface degradation.

I use Collinite No. 885 paste wax on our 2007 Safari. It's not easy to remove but it last a very long time.

Thumbs up

I have used this sealant since getting the Classic, easy application and removal, very quick with orbital. Usually seal every Fall before storage, very good durability. A little goes a long way.
Have used their products for years with outstanding results, excellent customer service.

Got the carnuba wax that I'm going to test to see if it lasts longer. The Ford will get the test also.

I use Collonite #885 on everything!
It is a simple caranuba wax with no polishing agents to hurt that clearcoat. It is definately an oldschool product but I have yet to run into anything that performs as well.
