    Question How to restore white color back on an RV?

    I have a 2001 Fleetwood Discovery. The previous owners neglected the RV. The white on the sides of the RV have turned a cream/tan color. I want to lighten the cream color as much as possible back to white. The sides are a fiberglass. Any recommendations on products/what I need to do to restore/bring back the white color?

    If your main goal is to restore color,black Fire src compound by hand or machine will do.If you're looking to gain gloss that's a tall order need pics.

    What size RV ?. Doing that by hand would be a real chore. I use 3M Heavy Duty compound, Wool Pad and a Rotary. IMO anything less will eat time and patience. I have not tried the McKees line, what I have works.

    How to restore white color back on an RV?-img_0430-jpg


    I just did this little camp trailer a couple days ago. I used Megs M67 One Step Compound on a G21 with MF cutting pads. Ate right through the oxidation and left a nice slick surface with some wax left behind. I did a test spot with my rotary on a wool pad, seemed no better than the G21...this thing is an animal!
