Well took the better part of 2 days to wash and wax the 5'er. But I must say its wasn't to bad just time consuming. Looks better than when I got it last spring. Then again I didn't have time to wash or wax then. We were to busy going camping every chance we could. Alls I Know is when we head out with some freinds who also bought a 5'er last year their gonna say wow its so clean. Of course my buddy's gonna tall me thanks now I gotta go clean mine. Oh well.

I washed it with blue coral car wash soap. Started on the roof, didn't get the rubber to clean but it did clean the A/C cover and vents nice. Then I added 1/2 bottle of awesome cleaner and washed the rest. Then I waxed it with Turtle wax that I bought a wallyworld for a buck a bottle on sale. Of course I've got the aluminum sides so useing the buffer I have didn't work had to do it by hand. Basiclly I used what I had on hand. I'll have to do the awning today probablly use simple green on that.

I just dread having to wash ours tonight...It's for sale and I gotta wash it constantly. And like you, Tuke, I don't have the smoooth side, but it is fiberglass. I use an industrial product called LPS Precision Clean. Bugs go away as fast as they got on there! But I've got to be careful, if I use it "straight" it'll leave streaks.

New TH will be smooth AND fiberglass....can hardly wait (that is, to get it...I can wait to have to wash it!!).

I may be a bum, but I just have too many vehicles (or not enough time) to hand wax my trailer. I got one of those suction spray wands that runs off my air compressor and after I wash my trailer I mix up a batch of wax thinned just enough to spray nicely and I spray that trailer until my driveway is almost too slippery to stand on. I can feel wax all over my hands and arms. It may not be the 'official' way to wax a vehicle, but when i sold my last trailer after three years, it looked A-1 and I had stored it outdoors and without a cover.
If you can stand there with a wand in one hand and its little hose dropped down into a ten gallon bucket, you are ready for waxin'.

Well believe me I've already invested in a easier way I bought the blue coral wash and wax from wallyworld. Figure its one less step and who knows maybe it'll get a bath sooner than later next time.
