Newest Way to Make Camper Shiny ?

Please forgive me if this has been gone over a zillion times...

What's the latest & greatest way to shine up your camper?

I used that floor product from Lowe's about 6 years ago & it's pretty much gone.

Thank you very much.

We have considered a new coat over our old gelcoat has be done once in the past with a colour match: So far we just de-oxidise and wax each year with the product our local RV repair site recommends.

In the city they can colour match gallons of pre waxed gelcoat and thin it for roll/ brush on or spray thickness. Seems we can even get new decals.

Only one place can fit our boler through the shop door locally if we pay to get it done. Price is not to bad if we do all the prep work "taping work".

I have an older Scamp and it was very dull weather gel coat. I bought a kit called Poli Glow and cleaned it up and applied several coats of it. Looks way different and will be easier to clean. I also bought a bottle of a product called Rejex and I may give a coat or two of that also.

Try Seapower Marine cleaner and wax for gel coat surfaces.

A proper gel coat is only applied the mold prior to any of the fiberglass starts. It's gel, paint, / primer then the fiberglass.
