New 2005 Classic - Exterior Finish Appearance

We recently ordered and took delivery on our new 30'SO Classic, and have been going through the process of getting the "new unit bugs" cleared up. However, the exterior surface appearance has me somewhat concerned as to whether it is "normal" or not.
When the sun is reflecting on the surface, you see what looks like fine brush or rub marks going in random directions all over the surfaces of the sides. You don't notice these unless the sun or bright light is reflecting on the surface. Airstream had the dealer Walbernize the trailer in an attempt to polish out these marks, but it didn't appear to have much affect. The dealer and Airstream are telling me that the marks are normal. However, if I had purchased a new automobile, I would not expect it to have "rub" marks showing in the finish, so I still have concern.
Has anyone observed a similar thing?

Can you take a digital pic when it is in the sun? I sure haven't noticed any "rub marks" on my 2004 Classic 30' but I am curious what your marks look like. Would also just like to see your new baby. Hope your happy.

Just expearenced a similar thing---Washed our new classic for the first time with a new soft brush that was "safe for clear coat finishes". When finished washing I had brush marks like you discribe on both sides. I used the Walbernise and mine are gone. I also had a few light scratches that with a little time and the Walbernise removed them also. Suggest you try the Walbernise your self , working on small areas at a time and see if they can be worked out.

Big Dee,
I have posted a photo showing a sample of the "marks" in exterior finish.

Yeah Tom, I just washed mine and there are none of those marks. Looks like someone used a harsh brush to wash your unit. I wonder who?
