Paint sealant

Has anyone heard of an exterior paint sealant called Eco? Is it worth the price and does it work? The claim is that it makes it easyier to get the bugs off your coach.

Never heard of it. Call the manufacturer of the paint for your rig and ask them if it's approved for use on their paint. My guess is that it's not.
I never buy those "paint protection" packages, usually they're just extra profit for the dealer.

NOT ONE of those "so called" paint sealants are worth their weight in the can. No, they do not make "Bug removing" any easier, in any way, shape or form. I've seen those for sale for decades and not one of them has ever proven to be of any value what so ever. The folks we purchased our coach from, has just spent right at a $1,000 for "Paint Sealant" and, another $990 for "Windshield Sealant". The windshield sealant was SUPPOSED to prevent chips etc. Well, we purchased that coach just over 5 years ago and, to date, we've had a minimum of (7) chips repaired. So, needless to say, USELESS!

If it were me, I'd save my money for fuel, for traveling to nice places.
