Whether you are working on the gel coat of your boat, or the fiberglass of your RV, the products below are the perfect solution for either!


RV and Boat Washing

Removing the dirt and dust from your RV or boat is the first step to maintaining the value and beauty. The products below are a perfect place to start and will deliver the type of results you are looking for!

Meguiar's #54

Meguiar’s #54 Boat/RV Gel Wash is a rich, hi-sudsing formula that safely removes dirt, bird droppings, salt, and other environmental contaminants. Conditioners will increase the slickness and shine of the fiberglass. This wash is designed for frequent use and it will not cause detergent burn.

Detailing Clay

Detailing clay is not just for your car paint. Also very critical and effective for use on boats and RV's where air born pollution in its many forms will make for that "texture" feel to your gel coat or fiberglass. Especially useful on the back end of your RV where wind turbulence during driving greatly adds to the level of dirt and pollution. Also very effective for bug removal after those long road trips. Use prior to any application of wax or polish.

Meguiar's Professional Clay

Still one of my professional favorites. Don't underestimate the difference of your results by using the detailing clay when it comes to your boat and RV's!

RV/Boat Waxing

Fiberglass and gel coats are subject to the harmful effects of weather just as car paint is. Protection is the way to beauty and protection. Because of the size of RV's and boats, most people are looking for the ultimate in protection. Nothing beats the engineered abilities of synthetic liquid polymers for protection and durability! Use one of the liquid sealants below for the base coat, use the Meguiar's #135 as a sealant extender anytime you are looking for a quick and easy way to visual enhance and extend the life of the base coat.

RV/Boat Cleaner Wax

Due to the size and living conditions of most boats and RV's, oxidation is a typical problem for most. By combining both a cleaner and wax into a single product, now you can accomplish two steps with one. Remove mild forms of oxidation while applying a layer of protection.
