    Full paint motorhome polish

    I have a Newmar coach with full paint in good condition. I used my boats marine 31 all in one on it and it did ok. Iím wondering if there is a better product for shine and protection on paint since marine 31 is intended for gel coat. I read the sticky and I am just wondering what the latest product you recommend. Thanks

    I'd recommend Gyeon Can Coat ceramic for one year+ of protection. A $59 can is 200ml which is enough to cover your coach. Easy application!

    If you're gonna prep it (recommended), 3D One is made for a ceramic prep.

    For all in one 3D speed. I would personally polish and coat separately. The aforementioned CanCoat Evo would be a good choice.

    I did my last 43' diesel pusher with 3D Speed and a topper of 3D Poxy and while it is a quick way to get around a coach with minimal paint issues it doesn't last, especially if you wash your rig with any method other than a 2 bucket style wash

    Bite the bullet and do a one step polish with an appropriate polish and pad combo and as others suggested, use a "can coat" style product to finish it off

    Does it get washed while on the road in the winter? If so is hand wash or just sprayed off at some type of self serve coin op. I think these are important questions. Before recommending a certain type of protection. If the thing is not hand washed/ cared for regularly while on the road...personally i dont think its work it to take the extra time to apply can coat, cuz it probly aint gonna last if not maintained.

    On this one I did 3D One on wool and then 3D Speed on foam.

    This was black though. Any other color you could probably get away with 3D Speed on wool with forced orbital. Regular DA will work, but will just take longer.
