It is a cheap alternative to repainting an older RV.

Thats the best piece of advice i've seen yet... I talked to an RV body shop here in town, and they didn't have nice things to say about RedMax - obviously, they're a body shop - but he did suggest that i NOT use it on my MH with a great finish on it, just needs a polish and a wax which will help it to stay that way longer... he did say, however, that he's seen amazing results with RedMax on older fiberglass, but again, wasn't sold on it because of its labor and the harsh chemicals involved...
I'm afraid to do anything now...

Like this.....

If you have full body paint, treat it like a car, wax and buff periodically.

If you have gelcoat and stickers (no paint) the magic in this thread will probably help.

One side, the streetwise looked dull and oxidized. I believe, I have white on top, and paint below the belt line. I will enclose a pic. It is a 2000, so, being 12 years old, I did not think it was a clear coat paint. It sure did make a difference, especially on the top of the end caps on the roof. I originally saw this on the vintage rv's so I decided what the heck. The stripes or decals never bled, it just got easier with each coat. I am also planning on getting the Aerowash dry wash system.
