Caravan Ceramic/sealant

Looking for recommendations for a caravan. Was thinking ceramic but I need to apply outside on a fine day at this time of year. Any thoughts appreciated.

If you went for a ceramic coating then it would be very costly

Why not just use a very durable wax like colinite 476 wax which is very cheap to buy but very good for protection

Gyeon can coat is very effective and easy to use. It lasts quite a while.

I used Adam's H2O Guard & Gloss on my caravan last week, very very easy to apply with a damp microfibre and left a fantastic finish.

Might do but at least the product will get used. I've got bottles, tins etc of products that just never seem to go down!

If you're applying ceramic does the paintwork not need to be pretty much perfect or any imperfections will show.

You can't really do much of a machine polish on a caeavan, if yiu do it woyuld only be light so how would you enhance the finish befoe putting an expensive coating on it?

I used soft 99 fusso coat when I had mine, I gave it two coats then just topped up each year after never had any issues from then on with any green slime growing on it again and it stayed cleaner when being towed along with easier washing too.

Cost was my first thought there too.

Why not use something like Wetcoat/Beadjuice/Nano Sealant. Easy to apply and top up once you see the protection start to drop off.

Wetcoat or Cancoat on sides. C2 V3 by hand on roof where most crap gathers
