F11 Experience?

I thought there was a thread on F11 awhile back. But due to the horrible worthless search function on here I was unable to devote 6 months finding it.

Who has been using this product on their coaches? How has it performed and for how long?

A buddy of mine showed up in southern Utah recently to meet us for some rides. When he unloaded his enclosed trailer I discovered he had the same Harley but had picked up a new Wrangler. This bright yellow Wrangler was 5 to 6 years old but looked like a new factory paint job! The previous owner claimed he had used F11 on it three or four months prior. It felt like someone had just waxed it.

Greetings Joe! We applied it to our MH and our tow vehicle. Love the application due to just wiping on and then rotating the microfiber to wipe off. Both look great. The dirt doesn't seem to stick. When it is time to wash, I just use the power washer with no soap. Drying is done with a microfiber cloth. It's been a couple of months now, so I am still watching longevity compared to McQuires that was used last year.

Using the Newmar search engine came up with this result. some long threads in discussion of many.
Newmar search found in this sticky.
If a new product takes a while for people to catch on and write about it.
If you went to Harley web site may find more info.

Thanks for that RICK.

Thanks Stu. The DW just commented yesterday how great your coach looked. I told her you guys probably just finished waxing it or something, didn't dream you had F11 on it.

Order has been placed.

Used F11 on the top front of the coach and on my bike. Doesn't seem to hold up any better than any other polymer or "ceramic" coatings, maybe not as good as some others. Just my experience, your mileage may vary..

Jim, hate to hear that review. I'm going to try it on my coach in a couple weeks. My expectations are if it stays on and protects for close to 6 months it will enable me to do my own coach twice a year instead of having it professionally detailed in Florida each winter.

I'll probably give it a try on the car and bike also. Even if it does "almost" as good as waxing I will probably stick with it. I would love to get rid of two buffers, a ton of buffing pads, and several waxing products I haul all over.

Excellent Joe! Glad your DW liked our appearance.
I found that their large bottle covered the Motorhome and our Ford Explorer. I still have a little left in it actually. I am still using "303" on the Diamond Shield on the headlights though. .....Saves on F-11.
I'll await your thoughts on F-11.
Enjoy,
Stu

For future thoughts!
I have a product called "REJEX", from Amazon, $26.00. Believe it is a 16 oz. bottle. It was designed for use on aircraft. Probably a similar product to F-11.
Have an '04 Mountain Aire 3778 (38') and used it on the entire coach, but use "303" on the Dura Shield. First application was 6 months ago, just completed 2nd application. Paint on the coach shines like a new one! Also used it on my 2017 Colorado ZR-2, as well as 2017 GMC Terrain. Still have about 1/3 bottle left. Wipe it on, let haze, wipe it off.
My opinion is it is as good as F-11, but less expensive! May be worth a try!

If I find the F11 only lasts a short time I will certainly give the Rejex a shot. Anything is better than paying a detail guy once a year and then trying to wax it myself in another six months.

We are “testing” F11 and Exoforma on our coach. Both seem to be protecting about the same. Exoforma is almost 1/2 the price. I’m going to have the entire coach done with the Exoforma and will see.

Please advise with results.
