We are picking up our new trailer soon. It is a hard wall shell. What product should we use to protect it?
Thanks.

Just keep it clean and apply a good quality auto wax now and then when you get the energy.
Enjoy your new rig.

Some dealers offer a warrantied protectant. I would suggest two coats of paste wax. I found Mother's California Gold to be the best though it is a bit of work. Congrads on the new rig.

We use Aerospace Protectant 303, very satisfied with the results on the finish and the simplicity.

Another user of 303. Been using it since 1993 from the roof to the tires.

I have used 303 on the decals, but car wax on the rest. Never thought of using 303 on everything. That would simplify the effort greatly. Thanks for the tip.

I don't think I can buy 303 in Canada. I've checked the internet and stores that sell it don't ship to Canada. Sounds like it might be the best

I asked a similar question regarding 303 in another thread here. The consensus was split because some said it was streaky. I just bought a TT also and I am going to start out by applying 303 to the decals and Nu Finish car wax on the rest of it.

Janie;
Raven Truck Accessories and Gilmore sales in Edmonton both sell 303.
