Cool Paint protection

I am currently buying a winnie Aspect 30C from a dealer who wants to sell a Zeibart type paint and interior protection package. Is it worth it? This doesn't include undercoating.

The undercoat is a good product.
In times past paint protection may have had some value but today's painting is so much better you might be better off using this to protect from rock chips.
Works great, clear once installed.
I use a similar product on my Mac Air, still looks brand new.

Nope, just a dealer add-on to increase their profit.

By some scotch guard, and Go to Zeibart, or other place if you want it

It can't be paint protection. All modern "paint" is base coated and then clear coated. I guess it could be clearcoat protection. A money grubbing scam. IMHO

The 3M film is a good option to protect your coach - Tiffin sells their units with a similar product factory installed. There is a DIY spray product I've seen advertised on TV that I've been thinking about trying out. Looks easy enough and it's really cheap.

But don't have your dealer install the 3M film - go to a place that that is their business - you'll get a better product installed by higher skilled technicians and you'll get a good warranty on it too.

Undercoating may be something to consider if you drive in salt. But be careful where you get that done as you could end up with a mess underneath your coach - there are a lot of items under there that you don't want sprayed with black goop. Again, seek out a professional to do that kind of thing.

Fabric, interior and paint "protection" is basically a scam. They claim warranties that are almost impossible to collect on. Just get some scotch-guard and do it yourself. Hire someone to buff a good coat of wax on your new coach and be done with it.

Good luck!
