    You can use either a high resin polish such as autoglym, or a specialist boat polish. There are caravan polishes, but they are over priced and the same thing!

    As for a buffer, you really need a proffessional one rather than the twin handle rubbish that you see for sale. The twin handle ones are safe as they are slow and pretty useless, the proffession ones need a little more care to stop you burning through the paint but will do the job faster and to much higher standard. You only need to buff seasonally - if you want one just to remove wax, go for the cheap, slow one.

    Once you have buffed with a pro machine, you only need to wax once a month or so to keep it in new condition. It will be much easier to wax as it will retain it's shine, and much qwuicker to do by hand. Waxing a motorhome top to tail should take no more than an hour by hand, once up to standard - whereas when bad it can take all day!
