AI Panel Paint Defects

I have experienced paint failure on the Airstream supplied body panels and would like to know how others have addressed this and how effective the solutions have been. If you were lucky to get Airstream to replace, did they supply panels and installation? Were the new panels any better? If you repainted, are you happy with the results and did the respray help. It seems that this issue comes up from time to time going as far back as 2007 or before. Honestly, wouldn't you expect the paint on these panels to last as long as the MB paint? If the vehicle is kept clean and waxed, there is no reason to expect that the Airstream panels shouldn't be expected to last more than a few years.
I am interested to see how extensive this problem might be and what Airstream has done about it. Feel free to send a PM if you do not want to post publicly.
