Help for my neighbor

My neighbor has a pop-up hard top tent trailer and it's all fiberglass, not including the vinyl soft portion sides and screens. Watching me do all my stuff he asked about how to do his.

It's in excellent condition but he travels a lot and has a build up of severe dirt and road stain. I told him right off the bat to use a tide solution with hot water and a bristle brush and go to town cleaning, making sure he rinse quickly to rid any soap residue. The entire finish of the fiberglass has that dimply surface. I use both Mequiars and Mothers polish and wax on my aluminum trailer but not sure what to use on his "dimpled" fiberglass. Could he still use automotive polish?

This may sound crazy but I have seen it with my own two eyes. Zep floor wax. I had a Toyota MH that was fiberglass and tried every thing to try and bring back a shine. I sold it to a nice couple in VT he restored old tractors and was real handy with mechanical stuff so when I meet up with them about a year later the little motor home looked brand new. I said you did a great job painting it and that was when he told me about the floor wax I could not believe the difference. It took 8 coats of wax but it had a shine like a new penny.

No it does NOT sound crazy. It makes perfect sense. Back a few centuries ago when I had my 61 Chevy before today's car wax was on the market, I used floor wax (same type mom used to use back in the day) hey I was a kid and no money. It actually turned out ok.
I'll pass that on to my neighbor.... thanks mainah.

I use Zep floor wax on mine. Cleans up nice, easy to apply. In the spring I strip it, black streaks and all.
