Topcoat product use on a 2019 MHC

Curious if anyone has used Topcoat f11 on their camper. Touted to be a sealer/performance surface sealant. Manufacturer states it takes 24 t0 48 hours to cure and bond to the surface it is applied to.

Looked at it, expensive so I tried meguiars ceramic coating. Easy to apply, and cost effective. Curious if anyone has tried it, I see the ads on Facebook all the time.

From what I understand these ceramic coating MUST be applied properly or you have wasted your time. One coat can last 2 years 2 coats twice as long. You can pay a thousand dollars or more to do a car properly.
I would do some research before I got started.

Not sure about others but followed the directions on the bottle for the meguiars pretty easy and cost effective.

I have, it's a lot of work but effective. I keep it around for all my cars by the gallon.

It seems to last longer than the cheaper alternatives.

F11 top coat states their product last 3-6 months on the average, depending on conditions. McGuire’s is way more cost effective.....

Here is a copy from facebook to a longevity question.

F11 lasts 3-6 months on average! The longevity of the coating depends on how much abuse it takes from physical wear from car washes, hand washes, harsh chemicals, detergents, abusive weather or environmental conditions etc.

I looked into this product and even sent an email to the main office asking about whether it would work over the decals of our Montana. I never got a message back so I assume they did not want to comment on it or did not think it would work over the decals. To those that have put the ceramic coating on your Montana, did you put it over the graphics/decals or go around them?

I use it all the time on my Black GMC and it works great. I'm new to 5th wheel so haven't tried it on it yet. It works and goes on fast on the truck but the Monty will be a chore. The UV protection would be good for the decals I'm thinking. Just my opinion!

I have two coats of Topcoat F11 on my 2019 Montana 3730Fl. It took about 2 hours each time to do the entire coach with one week in between the first and second application. I currently use this product on all my vehicles and a little goes a long way. The results are worth it.

I used boat and RV Meguiar's M5032 Marine/RV One Step Cleaner
Seems to be working fine.
Had the front cap cleaned and waxed with RejeX last September.

Hi,
I am just looking into Rejex as well.
How is your September application holding up?
Is it effective against the bugs on the cap?

Thanks,
Mike

Suny07, it works well. I am down south again and will update you again once I get home and get the cap cleaned up. I think the cap needs a double coat of wax.
