B Van top protection

What have B Van owners found to be the best polish and/or protection for the fiberglass upper third of the vehicle? I have a new (to me) unit in good condition, and would like to keep it that way. Have considered Gellgloss and 303. Not sure which would offer best protection.

The manual says regular auto wax... but I think something better wouldn't hurt. Also, it's not a job you want to do frequently if you can avoid it!

GelGloss works well on fiberglass gelcoat. I've used it for years.
