Polish - what’s that?  Will leave it to others to offer opinions and when you have decided you can pop round and test on our van
Seriously Keith I only use ordinary car wax and wash stuff
Be careful if you go on the roof particularly as your foots still a bit iffy

Our Neuvo has just had it's first wash since getting it. We used Fenwicks Motorhome cleaner and Fenwicks Bobby Dazzler. QUite impressed with the results. Hopefully (if covid allows) off to Scotland soon so it will be a test to see how Fenwicks holds up. I expect other have lots of different products they use but in the end it's your choice.

I use Fenwicks motorhome cleaner and a polish intended for fibreglass boat hulls, can't remember the name but many similar products. If you polish above a line 2ft below roof line you will get black streaks.

Peter: you kindly told us about it a few years ago: Star Brite premium marine polish with pref

It's jolly good and so easy to apply.

I have found that Elbow Grease spray is as good as anything at cleaning the mastic in the joints. It won't necessarily bring it back to new but it will make a marked improvement. I apply it neat and use a Sonic Scrubber< (like an overgrown electric tooth brush, from  Lakeland). The spray is only about £1 per bottle and is widely available.
