Best wax and roof treatment?

I am still new to this, and I want to keep my trailer in as good condition as possible. I know everyone is saying to wax the trailer, ok, sold. But what brand? Do you all wax them like a car, wax on, let it dry, then wax off? I would imagine that will take the better part of a weekend to do. Or can I use a spray wax or something?

I also hear about doing some type of roof treatment annually? Any info on this please

I won't get into the wax debate.
But I will comment on roof treatment. If you have an EDPM roof, the OEM suggests no treatment required. Just use a mild soap such as Murphy's Oil Soap at least yearly.
In any case, Rubber or Fiberglass, you can treat the roof after cleaning with Aerospace 303 which is an excellent UV Protectant that many on this forum use and recommend.

Ok, good info. I plan on doing a very thorough cleaning of the roof and all the exterior once I de-winterize and get her ready for the year. Thanks

Yes, RV and marine. Easy on and easy off. My trailer has a better shine now then when it was new. No joke.
I bought it on Amazon.com. I think it's. 32oz bottle for around $20.

Thanks TDI-Minnie, I will look for that next time I go to the store. Im guessing it is still the old school style of apply it, let it dry, then wipe it off?
