Custom 31 foot Excella 500 in NM

I have been reworking the interior of my airstream, and I was wondering if anybody had advice for polishing the exterior?
I put in a faux stone wall, I am calling it "THE RANGER", I hope to have a complete national forrest visitor's center look and feel.

I have attached some photos.

Thanks!

Rivet Welcome to the Forums

That looks fantastic! Very clean. I spent several years about 150 miles due east of you in Dalhart, TX. We used to day trip to NM to ski.

Welcome to the forums. I like the juxtaposition of the natural wood, stone veneer, and white walls. Looks very nice...a little sparse for my taste though, but everything looks great!
