I used Protect-All on my travel trailer with fiberglass exterior with good results. It's very easy to apply, but doesn't last as long as good paste wax. I usually waxed the trailer twice a year. Protect-All is available at Wal-Mart and Camping World.

Now that I have a motorhome with full paint, I plan to use automotive wax, such as Maguires. With clear coat, the surface still looks great, so I haven't taken on the big job yet.

When the coach is dry I use Speed Shine. When the coach is wet I use Spray On Wax. Both are spray and wipe waxes. My signature coach has never been washed. It looks better than the day of delivery. This stuff is easy on the arms an joints.

We have been using Envy (formally known as No Wet) for quite some time now and the coach looks great. If you have any oxidation these type products will not be as effective before cutting and buffing the oxidation off. Good luck and let us know what you use; even post a photo of before and after if you like.

I second the nomination for No Wet. RVWizard put me on to that stuff and it is truly great. I usually do an annual polish with Nu Finish and use No Wet between polish jobs. Mine is now 5 yrs. old, is not stored inside and looks like a new rig. No Wet can also be used on glass...I use it on the windshield and it beads water and makes bug removal much more easy.

I did pretty good with Gel∙Gloss. My roof looks brand new.

I think all these products are excellent. I'll vouch for Protectall. Also, Protectall Wash is great. No hose needed.

Another vote for Protect-all. I've used on two different MHs for over 10 years. Finish on 6 yr. old coach like new when sold.

I wash my rig regularly. Like every week!! How long is the Protect All last before needing recoated when washing it that often?
The reason I ask is that I have been using some boat and RV wax I get from a local detail shop and it seems to last about 5 months or better but is harder to put on.

Never had that much time to be able to wash my trailer every week. Used to wash it any time it had been towed in the rain, however. Waxed it spring and fall, but it usually needed it pretty badly by the time I got around to it (especially after it got a few years old). Sounds like your wax lasts longer, but is harder to apply. The choices aren't easy - always a trade-off.

Trust me when Mike (ISLAPP) says he washes his rig every week. Every outing that we have been out on with him his rig looks spotless. I'm with Mike, I like a wax that doesn't take a lot of effort to apply and lasts. I use Gel-Gloss on may fiberglass sided trailer. It has a cleaner included in the wax. I'll do about 3 complete waxings a season. On my vehicles I have been using Meguiar's gold class. In both of these they are easy on / easy off. Now the Gel-Gloss product comes in a regular strength and a "heavy-duty". The heavy-duty I'll use on tar and bad areas of "black streak".
