Waxing Trailer

I prefer paste wax also. Never have used the pricier brands though. Just plain old Turtle Wax Hardshell. Do any of you worry about waxing your stickers? The front needs wax the most because of bugs but the big Rockwood lettering is there. I think I have waxed them before with no ill effects. Any comments will be appreciated.

303 Aerospace protectant

I used 303 Aerospace protectant on the front of my TT it came out shiny clean and bugs hose off and wipe away easily, I am impressed with this product so far. The first time I used it it was very streaky then I got a new clean microfiber cloth and rubbed the excess off and it shines beautifully. A bit more work than wax but it works well for me. It is a little exspensive but a little goes a long way, about 4 oz. did all 4 sides of my 24' TT. ...Now if I could just find a good RELATIVE repellent!...Happy Camping

My husband and I just got our Crusador 320RLT. I knew about waxing the sides, but I thought you were supposed to treat the rubber roof with something. Do you really wax the roof and what kind of wax do you use? Thanks for any help! We love our camper and want to keep it looking new and in good shape as long as possible.

You DO NOT wax the rubber roof. A good cleaning using a mild detergent once or twice a year is all that is required. Remember to check all caulking while up there and replace/repair where ever it's needed.

However, I did use Protect All Rubber Roof Treatment and really liked the results. It contains a UV blocker and helps to reduce chalking which causes the hard to remove black streaks.

Hope this helps.

I sure am glad I get to park our fifth wheel inside when we get home!

I do need to give it a good wax, though, but it should last the full year. Do you think 2, 6, and 8 year olds are too young to send up the ladder to wipe the wax off?

The Turtle Wax Ice spray bottle at the local Wal-Mart was $19.97 for a regular sized trigger bottle. It's Canada where everything is more expensive.

I bought some $5.97 a bottle stuff (neon green trigger bottle) which seems to do OK. Certainly easier than paste wax. I can do a section at a time and keep the camper looking nice and not have to haul buckets etc. This weekend camping I did the passenger side as high as I can reach. The bottom half is the dirty half anyway so perhaps this will work. When we're back in the states I'll pick up some TW Ice.
