    Extreme Weather sealant / protectant snow trailer suggestions

    I need a little help with my new snowmobile trailer. It's black painted aluminum ( enclosed in-line trailer ) and will be exposed to the environmental weather from now until April 1. I live in Michigan and it see's extreme weather and road conditions . Freezing weather with sand, salt, and anything else we use for Ice / snow / slush on the roads in the Midwest.
    Can I get some suggestions for sealants ? I have used " Sharkhide " on the bare aluminum, latches, fenders, ect... but now I'm looking for something for the thinly painted exterior.

    Thanks

    A lot of people use Collinite 845 year round and a must for winter.
    I actually prefer 476 or 885

    I'd want to use something that wouldn't build up/show on rivets, seams, etc., when the product dries and can't be easily wiped off during the final "buff".

    I have three sealants I regularly use for winter here in Michigan:

    1. Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax
    2. Duragloss 111
    3. Meguiar's M21

    In the past (late 90's early 2000's) I've had excellent luck with Meguiar's M20 Polymer Sealant.

    This season I'd like to give Meguiar's Paint Protect 365 a shot.

    I'd coat it. I recently coated a Cass A RV with CQUK (owners request) and I'll never go that again.

    I would look at the Wolfgang Uber Ceramic, Pinnacle Black Label All Surface or MCKee 37 coating to do the trailer while it's still new. I will be coating a Becks Enclosed snowmobile trailer shortly. I plan on using WG Uber Ceramic since cost is not a concern given the price of these trailers.

    Collinite 476 is their most durable. I use it and 845 on customer cars now and into winter. Personally I'd recommend McKee's 37 Coating for you. No clean up and will last a while. It's cost effective too. I've had it on our van and my car for a couple months now and it's still responding like day 1.

    Ceramic coat it or CarPro Hydr02. Hydr02 would be very easy to apply on your trailer.

    Will Hydro 2 last through winter? What's the durability of it like over time and in harsh climates? What's the longevity you've sen from it?
