Get Mcquires polishing compound for buffer. Borrow or rent low speed buffer. follow instructions on bottle. Will shine like a new penny. Wax afterwards-Long day ahead. Worth it tho
Good luck

Might try the Mecuires wax first with a mechanical polisher. I did this on our '88 Itasca and it came out great.

Several years ago I used rubbing/buffing/cleaning compound and a mechanical buffer to do my '93 Bounder. After that I polished it and it looked good, for a couple months. Then it faded again so I ended up painting it and the shine stays.
