I wished I had a smaller trailer earlier today.

I've never wished that until today. Backing into campsites or pulling into filling stations have never made me wish I had a smaller trailer, but waxing it for the first time today did. I don't even have a great big trailer but it took me almost 5 hours. I don't know how those of you with bigger trailers do it. I guess I should not try and do the whole thing in one day? Maybe I need a buffer too?

Well at least she looks as clean (or cleaner) than the day I picked her up...

I do mine over a 2 day period. The first day I do the high part with the ladder and the second day I just do a walk around and the windows. Mine is only 21' long.

I love my 2014 197 for that reason, plus drag, weight and staying with a medium vehicle. I say the same question every time I see a heavy on the road.

DW and I wax a different section of our Eagle 338 rlts each time we use it. It only takes a few minutes. Over the coarse of several months the whole thing gets waxed. We also clean off any black streaks each time.

WWsmith111 has it right. Unless you don't camp much. Otherwise we wax ours doing a 1/4 or 1/8 at a time. Get up have a cup and do an area before long you have finished. works for us.

Call the guy

We, CALLED THE GUY!!!!
With my back the way it is, it was worth every penny ($$$). They came out to the house and washed it and waxed it. They did a better job than DW and I would have done. They got every crack, cleaned the underside, waxed the tires, inside windows.

Very satisfied and no aches or pains, little thinner wallet..

From now on, we will ALWAYS call the GUY(s),

Will probably have them out to do the TV in January.
