    I have a new motorhome coming with a "supagard" treatment applied in and out, is this just a protective sealant and how should i maintain it, wash & wax enough? Any advice gratefuly received.

    It is supposedly a bonding sealant, meaning that you just wash the van with a light shampoo and it is supposed to dry smear free. You will get a fancy pack of stuff with it.

    Does it work? Basically it is another of these franchise operations, with huge markups. To be honest I wouldn't have bothered but it came with the van as a bit of a (supposed) bonus, so I shouldn't be ungrateful, But not really. I find the most valuable tools are a decent squeejy blade, a chamois leather and a bit of elbow grease

    Plenty of good cleaning tops here if you search. Congrats on the new van

    Our last van was done with Supaguard (won. not paid for) and if I had paid would have wanted my money back - not impressed at all.
    We have however had the last 2 cars done with Diamond Bright and that is good and lasts

    Don't spoil it too much, it will come to expect it.

    Get yourself a decent step ladder and a long handled brush, those will become your closesr friends

    Kings new clothes and I am not convinced that it's suitable for motorhomes. I have seen several vans that after having a sealer applied it starts cracking just as the warranty runs out. Most materials used in motorhome construction are designed to flex, sealants aren't.

    We had the treatment applied to ours too when we bought it - not convinced it was done properly or even worked as well as it should.

    No need to worry about maintaining is as it does nothing so nothing to maintain. I find it hard to believe dealers are still flogging this version of the kings new clothes.
