Thanks for the input guys... I'm kind of bumming about the way the vinyl looks. Had I looked into things a little closer before I proceeded I surely would have been able to get better results. We're doing our first big trip here in about two months... 6000 miles... once we get that under our belts and decide whether or not we even stick with RVing, maybe I will be able to justify looking into doing some additional repair and touch up on the body of this thing. It's not in horrible shape but it could definitely look better.

cheers

Well i took some advice from the forum here and decided to do the ZEP treatment to the old beast. It turned out pretty good. 4 coats total. I don't think I would use this on a car, or even a newer motorhome that still looked half decent, but given how much easier this was to do than wax and buff the entire exterior, I'd say it was the right choice given the circumstances. No, the motorhome doesn't look like new, but it does look a lot better. With everything cleaned up, the bright white seam doesn't look as noticeable either. So... all is good. I've finally got this thing ready for our trip... all we need to do now is load up and hit the road. Time will move slowly from now till then I am sure. Thanks again everyone for the assistance.

cheers

I don't know where you bought your sealant, but, I know I've seen "recreational white" (light beige actually) sealant at RV shops as well as some hardware type places.

I used some on my '95 Itasca (Winnebago) last year and while its obvious its new, the colour isn't too far off.
