Keeping a new trailer shiny?

Since Mark closed the recent thread regarding some trailers that may not have been kept up well with, I'd like to ask how some of you stay proactive in keeping the outside looking new. We just bought a new ST26BB and love it, but am unsure on how best to keep it nice on the outside. I noticed there are decals, so using a pressure washer would be a bad idea, do you guys just hand wash, and hand wax them, if so how often? Any other tips you might be able to provide as we wish to protect our investment as best as we can.

I use 303 protection on the decals. And Race Glaze wax on the body. 3 years old now. Still looks new.

I use Rejex, a polymer coating. Safe over everything including decals.
RejeX: Nothing Sticks but the Shine!

I also use Rejex on the entire unit including the decals. Really make sure to U/V protect the front cap against fading.

Rejex Quantity

How much is usually required to do the entire unit?

I believe I used about 2/3 of a bottle doing the whole unit once and the front cap twice along with two sore arms.

what size bottle are we talking about here. Their website has it in three different sizes 12OZ, 16OZ, or Gallon?

I get my whole 5er done with 3/4 of the 16oz. bottle. I occasionally keep on doing the front cap until I run out of Rejex.
