    5th Wheel Detail and Polish. Advice on pad/polish combo

    I have a buddy that asked me to shine up his 5th wheel for the upcoming camping season. It's in decent condition with some streaking and minor oxidation from being out and uncovered 24/7.

    This is my first camper and my buddy is allowing me to test my hand at it as I hope to add RVs to my mobile detail menu. For those that have done this before what's a good pad/polish combo to use? I have a HF DA and LC CCS pads and I was thinking of using Megs D151. The exterior appears to be fiberglass. I have attached pics for you guys to see.

    Thanks for the advice/Tips

    With that much real estate to cover an AIO is the way to go, D151 is a good choice or HD Speed. Also use the Lake Country white polishing pad.
    Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply. Is the exterior in that good of condition to not need an orange pad? Also, I was looking at the McKees Black streak remover. Should I add that as well?

    Black streaks should come out with the AIO or compounding/Polishing. It is hard to tell with the pictures but I do not see any shine anywhere. After owning a fiberglass 5th wheel since 2002 I do not believe fiberglass ever has mild oxidation. You may look at the Marine 31 line as Mike Phillips has been touting some of those products. You may wish you had a rotary and wool pads as a DA is ok for finishing but not highly recommended by me for oxidized fiberglass.
