Thanks for that information. My trailer is washed by my storage place after every use. So that wouldn't work.

Use a good marine fiberglass wax in spring and fall and call it good.

Sandra,
Over on SOI we have extensive posts on trailer waxing and prep. Just look in the maintenance table of contents for the posts. I use 3M Marine restorer/wax if there is chalking, and then finish with Meguiars Premium RV/Marine wax. Awesome stuff and easy to do.

Sandra,
The instructions on 303 say to reapply every 3-5 weeks for maximum protection.

Aerospace 303 vs Poliglow

Again, thanks for the input. Someone other than I will be doing the work, and I would not want to have something that would be laborious to remove, nor to be repeatedly applied on a short-term basis. And needless to add: good quality.
Of course as many, I want it all.

This is the method I'd follow too.
There are other products by 3M for heavy oxidation, but I doubt you'd need those.

BTS (Bow to Stern) is another alternative. Using that with good success. I will try 303 when I use up my gallon of BTS.

Thanks to all of you. Looks like I'm going to be doing a lot of reading.

I first heard of Aerospace 303 when I bought a used and quite faded, oxidized Wenonah kevlar canoe. Wenonah recommends 303 for all their fiberglass and kevlar canoes. I haven't tried it on the fiberglass of our trailer as I had already applied a couple of coats of Nufinish before I read about 303. I use it on all the plastic parts though. It did a great job of helping to bring some color and shine back to the heavily oxidized canoe.

BTS is a good product, I agree.
