I just finished re-caulking and now that I've got some momentum I want to spiffy up the fiberglass. What product do you recommend and what tips do you have?

Maguires. I like the spray bottle. Only use it for touch ups otherwise I like nufinish. After 9 years the white part of my RV is slightly yellowing. Not sure if the products I've been using has caused it or age. Good that the white is the smallest color on my green and gold colord RV.

I also use Meguyers but I use the "gold class" liquid wax. Biggest advantage is that you can apply it today and easily remove it when it's convenient in the next few days.

I use Mother's three step cleaner polish and wax. It is labor uses a lot of elbow grease but it's worth it. I used it on my boat and kept it like new for 11yrs.

Then I moved and had to sell the boat.

Something for fiberglass like 3M™ Marine Fiberglass Cleaner and Wax. Or strip the wax and remove any oxidation and then Zep Wet look floor finish, about 4 to 5 coats.

Zaino's All-In-One. You can use it with a rag and a little elbow grease or a polisher. I just put a coat on the Wild Cargo and it shines like new!

I use Meguiar's RV/Boat line of products. They are specifically formulated for fiberglass. They have pure wax or you can step up to polishes and compounds. Just depends on the condition of the surface you are treating. Good luck.
