Mequiars wax

I know there has always been and always will be the debate on which wax is the best. I am very particular about my cars and motorhome. I called meguiars to find out what they recommend for painted rv's. My 1st thought was the boat and rv wax they offer. I am very glad I called...this was the incorrect wax for my application. Meguiars just introduced a new wax called Meguiars ultimate wax. Available in either liquid or paste. After buffing the entire coach with meguiars cleaner wax I applied the ultimate liquid wax. Meguiars told me I could use anywhere,including the stripes. It is claimed to be one of the best UV protectants out there. It dries clear as well. It took me 4 days (between work) to buff it and wax it. Very impressive outcome! I just wanted to share.

Maguire's are the best. We use it on our 4 wheelers, and class A. My daughter was 17 and had a '95 Mustang. She took it to the Mustang Club of America's Grand National meet. She used Maguire's products and received a gold award for a daily driver. We have met Mr. Barry Maguire at the Amilia Island, he is a perfect gentleman.

I took shots pics of the rv after the buff and wax job using Meguiars Ultimate Liquid wax. I live in northern ohio so of course its not sunny for the pics but I thought I would post them anyways. I also included a pic of my truck after the same buff and wax job. I can honestly say this is probably the best "wet look" wax I have ever used.

Looks good. I bought some Meguires a while back and it didn't work. Of course if I take it out of my storge bay and actually apply it, that might help. Your pics have almost motivated me.

Lol! It was a lot of work buffing but the wax was easy. The results, I thought, were well worth it.

I have two Corvettes with composite body panels (similar to a motor home) , and I have consistently used Ultimate - it is the best in may opinion.

How, exactly, did you apply it. And, did you use a circular electric buffer?

I used a variable speed buffer to apply the cleaner wax. Then I applied the ultimate liquid wax by hand. I was very impressed how easy the application of the wax was. The key is to use the cleaner wax and get all of the oxidation off. I didn't think our coach had any oxidation on it until I hit one spot with the buffer..the cleaner wax is just as amazing as the ultimate wax.
