In preparation for selling the Bigfoot, , I wanted to clean and wax it up for the buyer. I checked with a local professional who does that sort of thing here at GOOD LIFE RV Resort and got a bid for the job.

It was more than I wanted to spend but he did sell me the product that he uses and I'm telling you it was the most fantastic stuff I've ever seen. If I had known about this product a long time ago, all of my eggs would have glittered. It is not a miracle product that will turn chalk to glaze, but it does apply very easily and makes things look so much better.

I followed his suggestion and applied it as follows:

Wash the trailer and dry.

Apply a moderate film in a given area with a micro-fiber pad or folded cloth.

Use a folded micro-fiber cloth in one hand to remove the wax, and another folded micro-fibre cloth in the other hand to buff it up a bit. He suggeted working one whole side at a time to avoid overlap and a higher polish line.

The stuff wokrs extremely easy without a ton of elbow grease and doesn't seem to leave those buffing swirls like some waxes. I did the entire 21 foot Bigfoot with about a pint so it goes a long ways.

Unfortunately, it only comes in gallons and costs about $35 + shipping but several people could split a gallon. Here's the Web Page.

Go to the products button on the left side, then to proffesional, then to:

ONE STEP PRODUCTS
164
Big White Sealant Conditioner


No, I don't get any commission but I like sharing things that work.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions, and I'll get back to you.

IT IS ONLY ONLY ONLY FOR FIBERGLASS. DO NOT USE ON PAINTED SURFACES

thought i might add a hint on a product I found that worked well on fiberglass eggs.
my burro had some oxidation on it and a friend of mine suggested I try SPEED_BRITE product. it is an easy on easy off procedure as well. the good part is that they will send you a free sample if you call them at 888-830-9092 or web at www.speed-brite.com so you can try it free before spending the bucks. Be aware I am not pushing their product
but just sharing the fact that it worked pretty well for me.
have fun, gerald

Looks like good stuff. When I investigated further I found that you can buy it in smaller amounts than the gallon size you mention. Just go to "products" on the left, then scroll over to the right and then down to "marine". You'll be able to find the same thing in 1 lb. amount for $14 something.

Yes, it's time to get to work on getting that egg shine like it should. My volkswagen bug and my camper...if only I could clean my house like I can polish my car and camper.

I thought these products were really interesting...After a bit of looking around I thought I'd try the 215 in a 15oz. size for about $15.00

Keith......
I took your advice and purchased the "Big White Sealant Conditioner BMW 164 in the one pound tub and let me say "Thank You" I have tried many products when i owned boats and now that i have casita the chalky exterior came right off and left a really nice shine on my 94' Casita..... I was shocked. I tried both ways....with a machine and by hand and they look about the same either way you do it. some rubbing is involved but no-where near what i had to do with other cleaners.... and this product need no wax after this process..... out of a one pound tub i used about 1/4 of it. will keep this product on my shelf.
Thanks for the great info.
Joe
