Hey Wils,

Glad to have you on board here and hope you are back soon. You made Vintage by one year. The nominal cut off is 20 years to be classified Vintage. If you would like we can add a custom title with your name that states "Vintage RV Owner". Let me know.

The older RVs have some unique features not found in the newer ones or is considered a high end option. Out 79 Silver Streak has a built in vacuum system, a built in voltage and polarity panel, and so on.

Hope you can get some photos of the redo.

you can add it txiceman. I took a couple of shots but the new paint doesn't stand out from the old. probably because the colors are close to the same shade. actually I am heading out in few hours to go camping but I will be back to painting next week!

This is actually something that I've been wondering about. How well does automotive paint adhear to the aluminum siding on an RV?

My strips are fadded and pealing and I was thinking of taking them of and repainting the strips.

Red Guy, I am using just that. Works great! Only issue i have found is three areas I had to repair are cracking. The Plastic heats and cools to much and i am going to try another product. Its that Bondo stuff for plastic bumpers! Supposed to Flex with the temp. Dan

I'm using aluminum primer and ACE brand house paint (semi gloss). All applied with a high quality brush. You have to get pretty close (5-6 ft) before you can see the brush marks. I had problems geting a good paint job with the roller as my siding is fluted.
