FYI I got my airstream polished by Jason from Craigslist- I think his company is swag cycles. Anyway they worked on it a few weeks but didn't finish the job. It's shinier but he left some swirl marks and it probably needs another round. He said he was going to finish up but never did and ignored my phone calls/texts ...enjoying my money in his pocket I'm sure. Don't use them!!!

Wonder what the charge would be to get one more round of polishing done- mine is shiny but not what I paid for

Mine looked better after I stripped it. It looked better yet at about 50 feet, after I polished with an airway wheel and black compound. After I went over it with the cotton wheel and the brown compound, it looked good at about 40 feet. After the soft cloth and Nuvite S with the Cyclo, it looks good up close.

I still have to detail mine, polish the belly wraps, and paint the top . . . but it's looking good. I don't have to be ashamed to pull it down the road.

It took me about one week of part days to finish up with the Cyclo. I think my longest day was 5 hours.

Your looking good. Have fun in MT. Lewistown is a nice area if you can make it up that way.

Take care,

Oilcan

RC - If your question "Think we can make it?" refers to getting her polish job done, the answer is "Why shore!!". Such a tiny trailer coupled with highly qualified polish folks - a no brainer. Have fun out there.
