Do I need Poly Coat?

Picking up a new to us 2014 Jayco from Camping World next week. They want to up-sell us a $1300 Poly Coat that will protect the exterior and interior from the elements for five years. Is it worth $1300, what is it?

Anything that does, "everything", doesn't do much at all, IMO. No way a coating can protect from sun and stones, then protect fabric and carpet from wear and stains.

Put the money to work for something else, like fuel into the gas tank.

I agree with Bamaboy. If the RV already has clear coat, why would you need "Poly Coat"??? Better to check with the manufacturer and find out what kind of warranty they have on the exterior (I don't know how "poly coat" can "protect" the interior) and what they recommend in the way of maintenance to take care of the exterior finish. If Jayco is selling a product whose exterior won't stand up to the elements for five years (with proper care, of course), then nobody should be buying Jayco. But, they're a good company and build good products; so the exterior of their units should wear well with proper and regular maintenance, per instructions in the RVs owner's manual.

Just mho!
