I would think a number of you also belong to the FiberglassRV.com. Grab youself a case of beer and start reading this ongoing thread: Check this out NOT Poliglow...Time will tell..
It's been going on since June 24, 2010 and the last post (#909) was on June 20, 2019. The thread went from Poliglow to Zep products.
Two of our previous trailers were a 2000 (?) Scamp 16' Side Bath (6 years), and a 2007 Casita Spirit (5 years). I detested the cleaning, waxing, and buffing, especially with those rivet buttons. Two years ago we purchased a 2003 25' Bigfoot that was badly oxidized. By that time I'd ready read the "NOT Poliglow" thread and thought why not.
First I purchased the Zep stripper and sealer, plus bought a pack of microfiber towels, two glove/sponges and two simple spray bottles at Lowes in Rochester, MN. I cleaned the Bigfoot at a decent car wash and brought it back to our campsite .8 mile from our condo. I used the stripper to clean/strip the badly oxidated gelcoat on the Bigfoot. I applied the stripper with one of the spray bottles, being careful to avoid the windows. This took perhaps 2 hours on that 25' Bigfoot. I rinsed the camper with water, dried it with microfiber cloths, and let the camper finish drying overnight.
The next day I wiped the Bigfoot down again with microfiber cloths (perhaps 15 minutes). After wiping the trailer down I put the Zep Floor Sealer in a spray bottle and applied the sealer using the sponge glove. Took about 15-20 minutes to apply to the entire camper. An hour later I applied the second coat, waited and hour, and applied the final coat.
In all, the stripping/sealer applications took about perhaps 4 working hours. I'll do it in half the time when our 5.0 TA needs to be spruced up.
We sold the camper last year. This spring the owner informed me that her husband died in February. She asked me to help her sell the Bigfoot. It was 150 miles away, but sold withing a week of putting the ad on FiberglassRV.com. When I went to her place to finalize the sale to a couple from Tennessee (?) the Bigfoot still shined like a new camper, despite sitting outside all winter!
