Aluminum pitting on panels

Recently bought a 1987 25' Sovereign. In great shape w one exception. There is pitting on the front panels below the windows. My guess it is from PO towing on sand or gravel w/o mud flaps.

Panels are lightly pitted, almost as though sand blasted. Can this be buffed out. Any other suggestions?

Thanks

Just a thought...

Are these areas in a place where it might make sense to install a gravel guard? If so you might be able to just cover them up with something that would both make it look better as well as protect the area from any further damage.

Rock guards

Installation of rock guards sounds like a great idea. I'll look into price ASAP.

My 25' Tradewind has the front below the window pitted just like yours. It is from gravel roads etc. I have seen panels for the trailer at Inland RV. I bought a tinted window guard from them for the trailer.
