Any wax with a high Carnauba content. I use Autoglym High Definition wax.
You don't "cover" your car in wax and leave it on. You polish your van with it as per the manufacturer's instructions. I apply two coats every six months.

I'm a big fan of Collinite 476...it's one of the toughest waxes you'll find and is billed as 'detergent proof'. As a bonus you can generally pick it up for around £20, one tin should last a long time. Word to the wise though, apply it thinly! It can be a sod to buff off if you go to thick with it.
