John,

Thank you for the information, I have looked at a lot of the 54 pages of post regarding Zep products. This looks like the easiest solution to my problem as I am reluctant to pant the Scamp 19' fifth wheel. This looks like it will give me the results that I can live with and a lot less money than a two stage paint process.

Ken

I'm with you on this one! That was the first thing I was impressed with.

I can't really tell from the photo's how bad it is but you might be able to put them on now and it be OK..Also a spare rack mounted on the bumper as you mention would work..As far as trying to repair the damage I would probably try to seal the cracks and leave it along, because anything else would require a paint job to cover the repairs.......Theres a product that some people on here has used called Captain Tolleys Creeping Crack Repair.... I personally have not used it but maybe someone else can chime in that has used it and tell how it may have worked for them.....It should help on any stress cracks you may have also..If after a good scrubbing there's still a faded look to it you might try sanding it down with 400 grit sandpaper.One of my trilliums was faded pretty bad and that worked great for me I used a electric palm sander and went over the entire camper turned out great, just make sure the gelcoat doesn't have any thin places in it where you might sand down through it and expose the fiberglass underneath..The gelcoat on most of these is fairly thick enough to take a little sanding just be careful..How big are those tail lights, I've got a set of round LED's I bought once to put on a Burro I once owned but they didn't work out.. If I can find them and if they will fit they are yours since your doing this as a favor for the folks...I'll dig around tomorrow and see if I can locate them and see what size they are.... The best that I can remember they were around 5" or 6" but can't remember for sure....GOOD LUCK WITH THE CAMPER RANDY...
Princess Auto in Canada has all the perfect lights for the Boler's and if you ask them they'll let you know when they're on sale 50% off! All LED

This advice is from someone who has seen it first hand.
I just got my cute egg last fall and I don't think it's quite an addiction, BUT ... I do need to find out how to clean it up, rejig some of the inside, put on new axle, and then maybe, in a couple of years, take it ALL apart. A project for my retirement, and learning! I'm not in the least bit mechanical! It looks beautiful, and you're having fun.
