Keeping that shinny new appearance

As I have stated in my two previous posts I will pickup my new 27FB Flying Cloud next week. I am looking for advise on keeping the exterior looking shinny and new. I have plenty of experience with RVs and gel coat exteriors but absolutely none with AS exteriors.

Thanks in advance.

What Jim said, and store under cover to protect from the sun and elements.

The Airstream recommended "Walbernize" wax works quite well. There are other posts on the Forum from owners who use other types of wax, generally automotive wax. Just keep it clean and covered, that is all you can do.

BTW, when we say "covered" we mean in a barn, storage shed, etc. not under a car cover type of thing. That will mess up your finish.

Didn't see your thread and started a similar one. Some products I've read about already listed there.

Maybe the mods just want to go ahead and combine the threads?
