Google is your friend... "PoliGlow + Toronto" = Order form for PoliGlow Canada
You could also check with any marina or marine supply stores to save on shipping

Yep, bought some last year from that place. Minimal interaction but it arrived safe and sound. I think it's pretty expensive up here after shipping.

I emailed Poli Glow Canada & they informed me that it's available up in Port Perry...just north of me. So I guess you know what I'll be doing once it's nice out.

I finally did it! After trying waxes and hours of work only to have a shiny trailer for a day or two, I broke down and applied some poli-glow! 2 days of work, and FINALLY my trailer looks like brand new!!

No more waxing for me..

Thanks Booker...I had read all the pros and cons about the application and should I ever decide to paint the trailer, I know it'll all have to be taken off and that will be alot of work.. But I'm not at that stage yet, and this was ALOT cheaper than a paint job...

You've made me jealous, Carolyn! Our VT gets a regular wash and cleaning, but it never looks as good as this one. Quick question - With the decals on the trailer, did you just PoliGlow around them or did you go over them? I have the PoliGlow ready to try, but didn't want to damage the decals.

Thanks everyone for your kind words...I really appreciate it!

Kevin,
I went right over the decals with no problem what so ever - the instructions that came with the 'glow' said you could, so I did...carefully at first..but they've got about 3 coats on them now..actually made them a bit brighter and the color more even looking.

I will say that I was 'sloppy' and got some 'glow' on my clothing (the bottle leaked a bit at the cap) but the splashes all came out of my jeans and t-shirt I was wearing..

I HIGHLY recommend scrubbing very good before the application - I did 3 different ways (Borax & water, some "Awesome" cleaner, then the cleaner that came with the package. I do have some faint black streaks that didn't come out on the street side,but you have to be standing 2" away from the exterior to really seem them..I was, so I do...UGH! The roof took longer to do, but I believe it's more pitted than the sides..yet after a few coats, it went on smoothly.. I used about 3/4 of a bottle, probably more than I needed to use.. The exterior is now as shiny as the interior!! (remember we have no carpet on the walls of a U-Haul trailer!)

My thanks go out to a Casita couple from Virginia that I met at the Southern Ohio Fall Rally last year that had used a like product on their trailer and gave me hope that mine could look as good...Things you learn at Fiberglass trailer meets!!
