Meguiar's makes some decent products, I am currently using their Gold Class liquid wax after removing the oxidation with their Ultimate compound. I'll share some advice: if you have enough of it, elbow grease produces the best results. I haven't made it all the way around my rig yet nor has the wax job been put to the test but I do know that the more you spend on a product, the better the quality of it.
Always remember, hills are only speed bumps on a bigger scale!

I've been using NuFinish. It takes a full bottle to do our Georgetown 378TS. It will take me about 6-7 hours by hand, but the results a really great. No streaks, easy on and easy off. I do mine once a year and will use Turtle Wax ICE spray detailer after a wash. Just have a lot of terrycloth and a ladder!

I've stopped using products that are difficult to apply. Products like Turtle Wax ICE spray detailer go on super easy and leave a slick shiny surface. I may have to apply again in 3 months but it is quickly and easily done.

I have used Meguiars products and also Collinite 925 which is designed for Fiberglass and Gel Coats, although a car detailing forum I belong to says that Collinite 835 and 925 are the exact same product with the 925 being marketed towards the boat and RV industry. I haven't confirmed this, but the Collinite is a very good product. I get a much longer lasting shine and beading of water from the Collinite. And that in turn makes washing the trailer a much easier task. The dirt comes off very easily when it's got a good protective wax on it.
