Before I use Meguiars Cleaner Wax or Meguiars Gold Carnuba Wax, I wash our Jayco with Meguiars Ultimate Wash and Wax. About $8 for the wash and wax bottle and about $8 for the wax container at Wal-Mart, Auto Zone, Advanced Auto, supermarkets. Nothing fancy, not expensive, not hard to find.

Turtle Wax Ice, Mother's, and Chemical Guys are also good products I've used. [emoticon]

Bought my first vehicle in '61 (used '58 GMC pickup). I';ve used a lot of different brand but I've found for my use Meguiars Cleaner Wax stays on longer than other brands.
My '97 5er still shines like new. I wax it maybe every 6-7 years but wax the front cap 2-3 times a season. Bugs spray right off the cap with a hose.

Yeah, it’s right there next to my tractor wax, bicycle wax, mustache wax, and bikini wax.

I can’t quite read the brand name, but maybe you recognize the label.

Did you think Turtle wax was hard to get off? Seems to me it was much harder to get off than MeQuires. I'm pretty lazy you know. I like easy.

I have been using Meguiars Flagship Marine Clearner Wax for a few years and then the Same Premium Wax. Wipe on, let it dry a few minutes and wipe off and it always left a very reflective shine. UV resistant is a plus. I wax once a year and use the Cameco Wash and Wax and it always cleans it up and shines again.

I just used the Premium wax on my fiver this week with excellent results. I was shocked at the shine afterwards including on the back cap. My only gripe would be is that it would be nice to have some color to the wax so it is easier to see areas that are missed while removing the product.

My neighbour got me on to this wax last year after I bought my boat.

Lots of them give the gratification of an easy wonderful shine.

The difference is the durability of that shine. The difference here will be found in the quality & price of the product. No matter the quality the labour to apply it is about the same. How much is your time worth? Me, I'd rather use a well respected marine product which cost $10 more a bottle & is good for once a year than go cheap & have the unit looking like it needs doing again in 3 months.

agree, and Not only that. but care between waxing is important. Never use dish soap, It strips the wax off.
