Wax / polish

I've found the total solution to keeping a glossy finish on the trailer.
It's my daughter's boyfriend. He loves washing, waxing and polishing. Has all the gear, materials and practical experience.
He has multiple grades of polishing compound and the restraint needed to do a good job.
We ( I watched ) just worked on the area above the rock guard. For some reason that area had lost its shine.

I gotta get me one of those. Any chance you can send him this way?

Can really see the difference now that the sun is down. Took him about 20 minutes.

He appears to be a keeper! Is he interested in a visit to California?

Wow, he is indeed a keeper. Your camper looks all shiny now!
Can he also pay Wisconsin a visit?

I wish my daughter had a boyfriend like that! Wait... she's married, I don't think her husband would appreciate that. And I keep my truck cleaner than he keeps his car, so it's doubtful he'd be interested in washing/waxing my trailer.

So... I wish I had a boyfriend like that
