Best Fiberglass Wax For RVs: Protect And Shine

Hello there, fabulous road-trippers and shine-seekers! Steph here to chat about something near and dear to my heart—keeping our RV looking its absolute best. Now, you wouldn’t hit the road without making sure you look your best, right? Your RV deserves the same love and attention. So, let’s delve into the sparkling world of fiberglass waxes for your RV, shall we?

Why Fiberglass Wax Matters for Your RV

First thing’s first: Why bother? Well, that glossy finish on your RV isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s a protective layer. A good wax forms a barrier against UV rays, rain, and even that pesky bird who seems to have made your roof their personal canvas.

Key Point: Fiberglass wax preserves the life and luster of your RV. It’s like sunscreen but for your home on wheels.

Choosing the Right Fiberglass Wax for Your RV

Quality Over Quantity

Don’t skimp out by opting for the cheapest option on the shelf. High-quality waxes may seem pricey, but they pay off in longevity and effectiveness.

Know Your Finish

Is your RV painted fiberglass or just plain fiberglass? Knowing the type helps you pick a wax that complements your specific finish.

Easy to Apply

You don’t want to spend your whole weekend waxing the RV, right? Look for waxes that are easy to apply and remove, saving you time for more road adventures.

My Top Picks

  1. Meguiar’s Marine/RV Pure Wax Carnauba Blend: My personal favorite, it’s simple to use and gives your RV a luscious shine.
  2. 3M Marine Restorer & Wax: Perfect for those who’ve neglected their RV a bit. This one restores and waxes in one go.
  3. Collinite No. 885 Heavy Duty Paste Wax: A heavy-duty option for those of you who face harsh weather conditions.

What is the best way to apply fiberglass wax to my RV?

Applying in small sections and using a microfiber cloth can give you the best results. Some waxes also allow application using an orbital buffer for an even deeper shine.

How often should I wax my RV?

At least twice a year, but it depends on how much exposure your RV gets to harsh weather and sun. If you’re full-timing it like Doug and me, consider doing it every three months.

Can I use car wax on my RV?

It’s better to use a product specifically designed for RVs or marine vehicles, as they offer better UV protection.

How do I know if my RV has a fiberglass finish?

Check your owner’s manual or look for a gel-coat finish, which is characteristic of fiberglass.

Is it okay to wax my RV in direct sunlight?

It’s best to avoid it because the heat can make the wax dry too quickly, making it difficult to buff off.

So there you have it, my lovely RV aficionados! A little elbow grease and the right fiberglass wax can make your RV the shining star of any campground. May your RV always be as fabulous as you are!

Hit the road shining!

Until next time,
