Paint is the ultimate solution. Could I suggest white? Red always fades, clothing, paint, gelcoat, it fades.

I own a bright red Winnebago TT with gel coat finish. Despite waxing yearly and covering in the off season, it's finish has dulled considerably with splotchy oxidation. Last fall I made some headway by using my Dewalt orbital with wool pads and Meguiars 49 oxidation remover followed by Meguiars 56 Pure Wax. When I uncovered last week, I'd lost most of last year's improvement? If anyone has any advice, I will certainly appreciate it.


Personally I like Meguiars pro polishing compound (205) using either a specific "correction" foam pad or something like Meguiars micro fiber cutting pad. Finally I recommend using a good polymer/sealant like Meguiars Marine wax and not a carnauba based wax which is great for shine, put poor for protection/longevity.
