New Trailer, best wax and roof cleaner?

We have recently traded out of our Class A and into a 2012 Keystone Bullet TT (couldn't be happier with the move the trailer suits our families needs WAY better than the coach).

I would love some advice on the best wax product (I know it's very unlikely the dealer ever waxed it, so I want to get a good product on it), I am not too concerned about ease of application, etc. I just want the best to protect the TT from sun damage, etc.

Also any advice on roof cleaning product?

Thanks,

Everybody is going to have their preferred wax.

We use RejeX on our Class A. It can be applied to the paint, windows and chrome and depending on the weather it will last several months. Read the reviews on their website.

RejeX: Nothing Sticks but the Shine!

For cleaning the roof we use Turtle Wax Zip Car wash with a soft brush.

We use a marine wax on the boat and MH works great. Salt water is very hard on a boat fiberglass so I figure it will work great on our MH.

new trailer best wax and roof cleaner

I have used Nu Finish for years on my camper and found it to be an excellent product both for protection and ease of use.

I have a new trailer as well, but I have a fair amount of experience with my boat. My trailer has the smooth gelcoat sides and back with a fibreglass front cap (all very similar to a gelcoat/fibreglass boat). I use a marine/aviation paste wax called Collinite Fleetwax. If applied properly, it is very easy to apply and really lasts. Do a small area at a time , say 4' by 4'. Use a spray water bottle to mist the area, and apply the paste wax using one of those round "foamy" wax applicators (like the old Karate Kid). Let it dry to about 60-75% dry. Do not let it dry completely or you will be using the "old elbow grease" removal method - tough sledding. Use a micro-fibre cloth to remove and it comes off just like a liquid wax (very easy). Water beads up on this product for about a year on my boat (but I put on 2 coats on the boat).
Can't comment on the RV roof, as I have just tried the Protect-All product to "protect" the rubber membrane, but just applied recently.
Good luck,
Tom

+1 on using Rejex for the sides, works great and lasts a long time. It's actually not a wax but a polymer product. As for the roof, mild soap and water. No need for special cleaners.

I use Meguiar's Cleaner Wax in the maroon plastic bottle. It has a UV protectant and can be put on the entire vehicle before wiping it off.
