Spring cleaning

Hello, My Eagle 275 bhs is in need of spring shower after a winter in storage. Since this is my first smooth side trailer I was just wondering what you pros recommend to wash and wax the outside ,I don't need to learn the hard way!
What about the roof? And do you use anything on the tires? Thanks in advance.( ps. any views on the truck washing sites)

Depending on the roof you have, there are specific products for the roof. I recommend using them and following directions and using some sort of protectant. When it comes to the sides, many people have their own opinion on what works best. For me, I use a gentle car wash (like Meguiars), and I purchased a soft bristle long handle brush. Then I rinse good.
One thing I am particular about though is that I wax it twice per year. Its a long process, but the results are obvious. I use waxes designed strictly for fiberglass and/or gelcoat surfaces (like boats, RVs and truck campershells) like Meguiars M5032 cleaner wax or StarBrite Marine Fiberglass color restorer.
We are just a humble drinking couple with a hunting and camping problem.

DICOR/APLHA SYSTEMS recommend Spic N Span and a stiff brush, nothing special.
