    Re: Extreme Weather sealant / protectant snow trailer suggestions

    Thanks for all the reply's.
    I did my last trailer a few times with Collinite 915, and that was a work-out. I wouldn't mind a " ceramic " sealant .... when I looked at WG's $199 for a syringe I was surprised. Is there anyone that thinks 30cc would not be enough ?
    Trailer is a 16' In line ( 21' X 6.5' ) approx.

    Re: Extreme Weather sealant / protectant snow trailer suggestions

    I too have a sled trailer that lives on the salty roads in the winter months. I've had good luck with just a good coat of wax on it before the season starts. I wash the trailer after every trip and if we have several trips in really nasty conditions, I will re-wax the v-nose and the rear of the trailer behind the wheels. I've found the salt/sand spray from the truck and the trailer wheels wears away the wax faster in these areas. I thought about trying a coating and I still might, but Collinite 476 works really well too and is dirt cheap.

    The Wolfgang is not a sealant. It's a coating. Due to the price listed the other 2 options. I think you would need 2 30ml syringes to do the trailer. I think you could do the while trailer with 1 bottle of Pinnacle Black Label all surface coating.

    Roger That, please excuse my terminology. I'm going to look at the other suggestions also.
    Additionally, I do take care of the trailer it's powerwashed after every trip, and I have been known to replace several fenders over the life span... LOL
    I just picked WG's Uber Ceramic due to the name... " ceramic ". I have found with at least the Collinite that vehicle surfaces seem to do better with a few coats ( could be just my impression ) . At least the 915.

    One good coat of the Uber Ceramic coating and you will be good to go for a couple years. Just try to keep the trailer as clean as possible.

    Mike has a video of the application and I suggest following it to a "T". I found the stuff super easy to work with.

    Sonax Polymer Net Shield. Even though it is not slippery to the touch, I have found nothing that keeps a car or any metal it is applied to cleaner.

    You probably know this already, but just wanna throw this out there-- you have a significant amount of prep work ahead of you if you plan on using a coating. Adhesion/application is a little more finicky that that of waxes and sealants.

    Well.... I have enlisted the help of my local detailing guy , I don't have the time nor the facility to enclose the trailer during the process. I store it indoors during the summer , it is an ATC Raven with a few upgrades . We will put WG's Ceramic to the test. Here is a pic for reference of the " before " appearance/condition .

    Good luck! Thats going to be a whole lotta work to prep and coat that thing. I wouldve gone with a spray sealant or sealant applied with a DA but Im lazy like that. Looking forward to the results.

    Its what I used for Winter prep packages when I lived in Syracuse. Of course, care affects longevity like every other product. What I enjoyed about it was that I could seal everything I could see, especially on trucks and SUVs.
