I throw globs of fun-tac from 10 feet away to recreate the factory look-and-feel...

Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Airstream uses and recommends Acryl-R, but the dispenser is costly, Sikaflex 221 is a very nice substitute.

May I add some problems to the question?
I am finally tackling some of the problems with the 77 sovereign 31' we acquired last year. First, make the water stay where it belongs, which brings me to this thread...
Here is a good example of several different issues.

Unattended seams, windows, growing stuff, peeling plasticote...
So on the panel to panel seams (newb question... ) Those are all supposed to have sealant? A LOT of the seams all over the trailer don't really look like there is anything there...? And what are the good product options for that? Then The window "gutter", I assume that is Vulchem that is filleted in there? I've seen Andy post to just clean the old and caulk over it...? If so, clean with what to give the new caulk a clean enough bonding surface? And what is the best sealant for that situation?
Maybe I put the cart before the horse but for my last question here, if I want to strip the plasticote and polish, should I do that before I caulk?
I've learned so much already just lurking for a year, and I really am impressed and appreciate the helpful attitudes everyone seems to have!
