Matter of opinion. General rule of thumb, a good carnuba with a hand buffer.

Is it fiberglass or do you have full body paint? If fiberglass look for a good boat wax/polish. If full body paint use automotive stuff. On my painted vehicles I typically use Nu Finish.

The best to use is JetSeal. It will last an entire year, takes a strict beating and will hold up. Donít use a Carnuba due to it breaking down quickly. (Great for car shows though). You want something that can take the elements if left out and when you are towing. Plus, JetSeal is easy on and off. Waxing a camper is a TASK so you donít need to be doing it every 3 months. This is my go to for campers, boats and airplanes. (Airplanes was the original use for it).

Jet Seal Question

Thanks for the tip on the Jest Seal, how does it work over the decals, I find that normal wax has a negative effect on the decals. Does its brighten them up at all? Thanks

No negative at all with decals. Layer right over.

Look up best car waxes for 2018 Meguire's synthetic came in #1 and Butter 100% pure carnuba came in #2 I think. Bottom line is you need to do it 2 a year minimally.

Nothing is prettier than a black car (truck, bike, RV, etc) when they are clean and polished. Nothing looks worse when they get even a bit dirty. Nice looking rig Wildwest450.
