Protective coating for an RV - EcoRVPro

Has anyone used EcoRVPro to coat their new RV? Who installed it? Cost?

I'm in the process of buying a new Itasca Navion IQ and want to protect the finish.

Google around a bit, and do a search in the forums here as well. You'll find that selling "paint protection" is a scam. Your paint manufacturer is Sikkens and, if you have full body paint, CDI is the company that Winny uses to paint their coaches in Forest City. Call CDI at 641-585-5900 and ask about "paint protection" products that are applied. I would certainly hope that CDI would steer you in the right direction, unless of course they're in on the scam as well as these types of products are nothing more than a hellacious profit generating machine that does little more than separate you from your money.

You could also call a local reputable body shop and ask them about these types of products...

I agree with 94-Newmar. Full body paint is just like the painting technique used on your car. A base layer that is the color followed by multiple coats of clear coat which protects the base color. You should not need additional protection.

We used Eco pro on the interior of our last RV and will also on the new one once it gets here. I equate it to Scotch Guard. It helped , at least for me to keep things clean, especially with the animals.

This product is nothing more than a sealant. In case you do not know what a sealant is, it's much like a wax only lasting longer. It can last up to a year (not 5 years like the product claims) under the right circumstances. A wax will last up to 6 months under the right circumstances. I detail my own cars and coach and use a sealant, then a wax over that simply because I like the look it gives. Hope that helps.

IMO you can get the same results with any decent quality car or boat "wax" (read: synthetic paint sealant) and Scotch-guard on the interior. If you want to pay somebody else to do that, OK, but the EcoRVpro product applications are often wildly overpriced by the dealer, e.g. $1500 or more for interior & exterior. And there is no evidence that EcoRVpro's paint sealant and interior sealants are any better than another, either in Eco-friendliness or performance.

Buy yourself a good quality vehicle "wax" (it doesn't need to have any real wax in it) and some Scotchguard and do it yourself, or hire a reliable detailer to apply it. I would think that $300 or so should cover the cost of a really good detailing job on that size rig.
