Waxing - Fiberglass Shell - Freedom Express 292 BHDS

We have a Coachmen Freedom Express 292 BHDS

Question for the board. What do you recommend as far as waxing the exterior of this coach as it has a fiberglass skin?

-Is there a certain type of wax you must use due to a fiberglass skin?
-How often do you recommend having the outside waxed?
-When waxing, does the room itself need to be waxed?
-When waxing, does the slide out room need to be waxed?

I found a company here locally that will wash/wax our travel trailer for about $115. Is there anything that I need to be certain to call out to him to be careful with or be certain he pays special attention to?

We want to ensure the outside shell of our travel trailer is well kept.

Thoughts?

we just sold our freedom express 296reds and I waxed it 4 times a year any good wax will suffice. I used wax from work that the line crew puts on our airplanes.. keep it waxed and you will get more when you sell... I traded mine in and it was 1 year old and just about came out even

Thank you for the feedback.

What brand and model did you just buy? Having had this a few months as our first we now wish we'd have bought a different floor plan.

hahahah... no disrespect but we wanted to sell ours 3 trips after we bought it. we looked at tons of campers and I wanted a large living room and wife said ok but she got tired of making beds and told me we are getting another, no excuses or I get to make the beds..so we got a rear bunk huge room with sleeping for 6 back their.. I have bought 2 TT since 05 and should of just bought the 5er from the start, get what you need now and you will never have to upgrade.. also I did not want to give up the truck bed but... wife wins...ours is the 2012 344QB wildcat with out the read kitchen, only cost 250. month and 50 dollars more than the coachman

Awesome. Ours has the rear bunkhouse for the kids. We've since learned that he kids don't like to go as "we are not cool". Should have just bought what I originally wanted.

Now researching I think we want a 5er. Just need to get a new truck as we currently pull our travel trailer with a 2012 Nissan Armada. I want to get a 350 or 450 now. More truck is better.
