Unhappy Atlas Owners? or Anyone with Atlas knowledge

Anybody out there own an Atlas? We are wondering how to remove scratches from a tree branch that hit the top, side and the right window. We tried some wax that says removes scratches, but only helped a little.

I am only jumping in here because I own an Airstream also in New Bern. From what I can see about the Atlas, it has metallic paint. But whether it is fiberglass or metal, painted, you have no doubt scratched the clearcoat and maybe the paint. Treat that as if it were a scratched car. If the clearcoat scratch is not too deep there are some products that will buff it out; if it is deeper then you may have to fill and blend more clearcoat. If you scratched the paint underneath then you need a paint scratch repair kit for the specific paint. I think many of us have simply endured tree scratches as a badge of use, especially after the first one....

You can buy little clear coat pens that do an amazing job on scratches.

Thank you. Now you are sounding like my husband. I understand scratches, but it hurts to get the first "set" of scratches.
