My T.T. is fiberglass and I have been pleased with Aerospace Protectant 303. I use a sponge mop to apply it right out of the jug to the roof and fiberglass. Shines until I wash it off and re apply in the spring.. No buffing,just put it on(no runs allowed) and let it dry.

I use the Protectant 303 quick spray wax on my truck and TT. It has UV blockers and leaves a nice shine easily.

I've used Dry Wash N Guard for many years. Goes on easy even in full sun (did it in Yuma just to see what happened). Lasts up to a year and leaves a great finish. Our 2002 Dutch Star looked good enough after 6 years the people thought it was brand new and after 13 still looked the same.
Haven't done the Magna yet as haven't taken the time out from the DW's health problems.

You don't need to do it all at once. If you get into a cycle of doing each side, (and the front and back as one section), every four months, (or any interval you feel comfortable with), then you only get partially tired.

Have used NuFinish on four coaches. Very easy "wax on-wax off". Can be applied shade or sun.

Present coach is a '13 Winnebago Vista 35f, black, grey and silver with clear coat. NuFinish really leaves a great shine. Note: be careful if your rig has vinyl decal stripes and such when using wax with petroleum distillates.Click image for larger version

I too am tired of the "wax on wax off". I have been using Turtle Wax Zip Wax for years, does a good job of cleaning & waxing, It lasts a reasonable amount of time and I don't have to dry the rig to prevent water spots (maybe it is the good water we have here in Paradise). I use it on all our vehicles, used it on our aluminum sided trailer, now on our fiberglass sided trailer.

I applied 303 to the fading colored front cap, looks better, maybe a second coat will do the trick. It was easy, but I made the mistake of spraying it on the cap & it ran down causing streaks. I will stick to the Turtle Zip Wax for the rest of the trailer, a lot easier.

I'll have to check with my wife, she's busy greasing the wheel bearings right now. When she's done I'll ask what she uses for waxing the rig. I'm a lucky guy!

She says 303 on all rubber items and Meguiars new Ultimate wax on body. Not my body but trailer body.
I would go with her recommendation!

Nu Finish is OK, but I hope you never need body work or repainting as it's almost impossible to remove well enough to get repairs to stick.
