Thank you everyone. All ideas and pictures are helpful. I'm going to see what friends in California and Arizona can suggest too. My son is restoring a very old Corvette and he is going to have it professionally painted. Don't know how expensive my Escape would be. Maybe I can get him to do some prep work on my trailer.

I'm surprised you need to do anything other than apply a coat of wax. I see you joined 2010 so I'm guessing your Escape isn't older than mine ( July 2008 ). Mine has spent it's life outside, under a cedar tree in the winter. No cover. I waxed it once. Rest of the time I've just used Simonize Wash 'n' Wax.
Last fall I had a guy ask me about the trailer and he expressed surprise at the age. He thought it was new.
It's not my fault.

That makes it only slightly older than the two of us Jim. Right?

LOL...Yeah, that's right!

Actually, my youngest daughter, for whom it will be a wedding present, pointed out that it is the same age as her older sister.

Her name wouldn't be Miriam (as in Moses' sister) would it?

Don't you listen to Garrison Keillor? (Did I just reveal my age?) Everyone on this forum is above average in everything.

Jim,
Re: Harsh: I was making reference to your "3800" typo post. Upon re-reading of my post: I agree, Harsh!
Please accept my apologies.
