painting a sunline

Let me re-introduce myself.
I bo't a 95 sunline 18' last spring and we have greatly enjoyed it.
It looks like new inside and has proven to be a lot of fun.

The outside tho is awful. The paint is gone in spots where others tried and failed to scrub the black streaks off. I too, had nothing to lose, and found the streaks to be baked THRU the paint. There is no taking off the streak without the paint coming with it.

So we are past cleaners. I am going to have to get this painted. I just restored a Goldwing this summer and had a Toyota service tech manager paint it. (he wasn't interested in doing a camper-I already asked). His opinion was that camper manufacturers used cheap paint. If the paint was automotive quality, they would do this.

So this begs the question, who does paint these? And if I go to a company that does TT repairs, I expect they will use the same cheap paint again.

Any advise or suggestions is appreciated.

BTW, I did a search figuring this was addressed, so my apologies, I didn't find it.

I'm there, too. Include me as "in" on this thread.

my advice as an autobody tech. would be to find a shop that repairs trucks and trailers and have them paint the camper with a basecoat/clearcoat paint, this will last a long long time, however it's going to cost a good buck to have a job like that done.
