Repairing, Painting and enjoying!

Hello all I just purchased a 1976 Ventura trailer. Despite it's age I feel this trailer is in pretty good shape. However I am remodelling the entire thing, I am new to this so have a few questions.
This is a fiberglass trailer with gel coating correct?

How to fill spider cracks in gel coat?

How to repair large holes in trailer (Where the fridge and furnace vents use to be)?

Thanks for any help!

Not sure on the spider cracks, but for closing up a big hole, check out this thread:

Try Capt. Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure. You can find it at RV/marine stores, 2ozs about $15 but it last a long time. It won't help cosmetically but it will stop those small nagging leaks.
