Polishing a Streamline

I have purchased a 1972 Streamline 25' trailer that I want to polish, I have read about different methods such as Nuvite polish or Jestco polishing compound sticks, can anyone enlighten me on which way is the better and faster way to go?

I think Streamline exterior skins are anodized. This would mean to polish to a mirror shine the anodized coating has to be stripped off.

I would not try it unless the anodize is worn off. There are ways to remove stains from the anodize skin, if that is the problem. That anodize oxide layer is hard to get off. It is a ceramic coating.
