StarBrite, available from Mailspeed marine. Incredible polish. I had similar problems with my last American RV, tried loads of different polishes which cost me a bomb! Then I was told about this stuff and based on my thinking that, if its good enough for ocean going boats with all that sun and salt, it should be good enough for a motorhome/RV, I gave it a crack. It is! Simple as that. Not the cheapest polish you can buy but very, very good and worth the money.

I had very dull paint on my 1979 La Boheme folding caravan when I got it last month I spent a full day with the T Cut to get the paint back to the origional colour Them went over it with a very good automotive wax polish looks much better now But as it is now 30 years old it could realy do with a full respray I will try to get round to doing that later in the year Andy

I use starbrite twice a year on our Rapido and it does give a very good and durable finish.
Use any make of marine glassfibre polish and the results will be just fine. If you finish is realy dull or the colour has faided or gone yellow use one that is a combined cleaner and polish for the first application and be prepared for it to be hard work. After that use a polish on a regular basis and you will maintain a shine with very little effort. I realy bad cases you may need to use a cleaner followed by a polish.
One word of caution no matter what anyone tells you DO NOT USE AN AUTOMOTIVE POLISH THAT CONTAINS SILICON! It may seem to work well but the silicon will have an adverse long etrm effect on your gel coat.
