I'd suspect , from the photo that there is an area at the bottom where the base coat is already exposed . From another post , I believe that ; spray cans of clear coat are available; and after a very light sanding with VERY fine sand paper ,then a new layer of clear coat can be applied .
You will have to avoid the area where the clear coat is completely gone , because the base coat could discolor with sanding or be removed completely.
When sanding , if the sand paper picks up any color , you're through the clear coat and into the base.
I'll see if I can track down the other post on ; clear coat repair.

EDIT : Back in time to add it here.

Protecting clear coat that is peeling

a note to say thx again. i read through the threads and will give it a shot to see if it cleans up a bit.

i bought the coach last year to use as an occasional weekender getaway rig. we have some progressive health issues so if we can freshen it up for a couple of years, were good.

thx again for the feedback and links, ill post a pic when its complete.

As mentioned, don’t sand through the color coat.

If you tape off the area, be aware of a line or transition that will be created at the tape line. Best to blend the area if possible.

As I look closer at your picture, the surface is fiberglass, correct.
If so, a scour pad may work better at scuffing the surface than sandpaper.
The sandpaper will hit the high spots or fibers, removing clear and color before you get to the entire clear area needing scuffing.

I’m not a pro by any means. Just have experienced my fair share of “Aw Crap” moments.

TCP Global is a good source for supplies if you don’t have any body shop supply facilities near by.

Good luck and post some pictures of your completed work.
