Great Post Darral T
It might sound a little like 20th Century, but I call that "Personal Pride". And... it's not about what others think about my rig, it's what I think about it....

I put 3 coats of wax on a few years back and now I just have to put one coat on at the begining of the season...no buffing just was off when dirty.
Trailer shines like new Fiberglass, no oxidation. Looks new for a 79 Boler.

2003 Bigfoot truck camper.
We wax it with marine wax, for a couple reasons
Uv and environmental protection
Make it easier to clean and keep the Windows from streaking
Make it look nice so it's easier to stealth camp and not have people think we are part of the no fixed address street parking, run down, beat-up RV dwellers. That have been causing problems in big cities all up and down the west coast.

Not really thread worthy,
In LA, San Fran, Seattle, Portland, all places that have seen a steep increase in housing costs since the recovery from the great recession.

There's been a dramatic increase in residentially disadvantage folks living out of their RV.
Many of these people cause zero issues at all, but like in many communities there's a handful of knuckleheads who do.

It's because of those knuckleheads that there's an assumption that if an RV is on the street, there's a criminal, drug dealer/user and/or sex offender living in it.
Many of the troublemakers RV's are in rough shape. So in the eyes of lots of people in these communities; rough shape RV=undesirable.

Many communities have begun to ban large vehicle overnight parking, or require RV permits for overnight parking, or even straight up outright abn RVs.
But some communities have established areas where folks can stay overnight in their rigs, but those places have been met with fierce resistance from the communities they are put in.
