UV Treatment or NOT

Hello All,

I am in the process of ordering a new Ellipse 42QD. The dealer wants to sell me the UV protection and the Inside stain protection. Is it worth the $2K to have it done on a brand new coach?
Thanks
Les

Sounds like the snake oil they try to sell with new cars. I would save my money.

It's kind of like a service policy, if they think it's necessary then find out why it isn't built with better quality materials.

No it is snake oil but the dealer makes out very good if they can sell you on the treatment.

I would decline. Your fabrics and carpet already have stain protections. And how do they apply the UV protection? Is it a 'permanent' coating or like a waxing compound? What about any competing prices? They can't be the only outfit that offers this service.... For a couple thou, I'd shop both the idea and the price. Then I'd decline.... Just my 2 cents.

I presume that all they do is treat the inside with a bit of this and the outside with something like this. To me this is well worth doing on a new RV, but I certainly would not pay anywhere near $2K to any dealer to have them do it. I would be able to do this myself in less than a day.

Out of interest - are the dealer offering any type of guarantee on this treatment, and if so - what does it say?

I'm wondering if in this case, UV Treatment means "Unload Valuables", as in "your money"?
