Wax for Azdel

Hi All- I've searched and searched for answers but can't find one regarding what type of wax to use on Azdel! I have a Coachmen Freedom Express 29 which has an Azdel exterior (which I love). I've gone as far as calling Coachmen twice and never got a return call... asked the dealership who said "any wax"! So now, im on to the real experts. Any idea what type of wax I should use??? Thanks!

Steve, RI

Looking at the cutaway on the coachman site the exterior is fibreglass so any wax for that should be ok. The azdel is under the fibreglass.

Actually your exterior is a smooth fiberglass skin. The azdel is what the fiberglass is adhered to instead of the usual luan walls. As stated in the features section of coachmen website referrring to the Coachmen freedom express line of trailers.


-Azdel Composite (IPO luan behind fiberglass)

-Smooth Fiberglass Exterior Skin

So any wax that works well on fiberglass is a-ok!

Makes sense to me. Thank you for the quick responses! You guys should go to work for a Coachmen RV!

I ended up using a product called Protect All... it's what the local rv service department recommend. Very easy to use and the camper looks great!

I have been using Maguiars NXT polymer. Goes on easily and wipes off like dust even several days later. Bugs and black streaks wipe right of. Not cheap, but one bottle does my Coachman FE 2-3 times.

I use a spray wax from Turtle Wax.It's call ICE and comes in a blue spray bottle.Spray on and wipe off.Won't leave white residue on window molding.I also use on the truck.Works well and lasts.
