How long does it last? Will it protect the gel gloss from UV light?
It sounds intriguing.

If you wanted to, you can apply to an ad company to wrap your vehicle, trailer, etc. and they'll pay you every month if you're accepted. Our Egg trailers could be very enticing for an advertiser. It is professionally installed and they remove it when your done.

The trailer isn't going to breathe through the gelcoated fiberglass walls or the glazed windows, whether they're wrapped or not. It might absorb some more heat if the color scheme is darker, but that's about it.

If you do have a condensation problem in storage, there are standalone dehumidifiers that can be run, or just a heat source to raise the dew point and create some convection.

West Marine links, but probably cheaper most anywhere else:

I would second those West Marine air dryers. They use very little power and create air movement with low heat. Turn it on and forget it. I use them and they were 40% off two weeks ago!
