EcoRVPro Exterior Paint Protection, any good?

Recently purchased a 2008 Coach, the RV dealer is trying to sell me the EcoRVPro protection package that specifically protects the exterior paint and after application says you don't need to wax it for 5 years.

I have done some web searching and find very little about this product. It's not cheap but I don't want to waste money on things that dont work or hold up.

Thanks for all responses!

Dan, I'd say it's "Snake Oil". I haven't heard of any product that will protect for five years. Most of us wax every year, or more not frequently.

I'd say if he's planning on wet sanding the entire unit and spraying it with a good quality clear coat, go for it.

If your unit has full paint w/clear coat, probably wasting you money on an expensive 'dealer PAD on'.

This is a way for the dealer to make big money. No way!

I think its all the same package of mostly useless stuff the dealer tries to sell to the new customer. If it was an incredible product....all of us would lining up to pay $1200 to never wax our rigs. Get some fabric protection at Walmart if you really think you need it......and wax your rig once a year. You could pay someone for 3 or 4 years to wax your rig for the money that ecorvpro is asking........5 years....if its such a wonder product than it should be on every new vehicle that's sold........

If you didn't wax a new RV for 5 years it would still look ok anyway. All he is doing is putting on a decent coat of synthetic "wax", which you can do yourself in 4-8 hours, depending on the size and how many breaks you take. Or hire somebody to do it for $125-$200, depending on your area.

Ask him what happens if you come back in 4 years (assuming he is still in business) and say you aren't happy with the shine? What is he promising for that extra cost?
