Here's another part of the question. Buffer or hand polish?

Hand polish. Except the roof. I only apply the wax on the roof and then rub it in. No finish wiping.

For a smooth sided camper, a small orbital buffer with a fine foam pad will work great with wax. Keep the speed low, apply it evenly and take it off by hand!

here is one from one amazon Porter-Cable 7424XP 6-Inch Variable-Speed Polisher -

here is one from autogeek Porter Cable 7424 XP Dual Action Polisher - dual action orbital car polisher, car care kits, buffer kits, PC 7424,7424XP, 7424 XP, porter cable

my suggestion is to get one from autogeek with a pad kit, these things are very handy, I use mine on everything!!!

In FL, there are numerous professional detailers that come into the campgrounds and all I've seen them use are the single pad orbital polishers. Most use Meguiar's wax applied with the buffer and removed by hand.

I got a fiberglass-specific polish from West Marine. It's their house brand. Works great.
