Our recently purchase Airstream, 87 34 Excella, we have learned has had the top painted previously. The sides are in great shape but the top is dingy/black. I would like some advice on having the top repainted vs restored to the orginal condition.
There is an elastomeric white paint made for mobile homes that probably would work . It is designed to reflect UV/ heat anf will expand with the metal. I'm not sure of a product name but it's easy to find.

I have the roof on my 77 painted white. It helped keep it cooler. You should find a good aluminum primer and then a flexible gloss white enamel. Properly prepared this type of paint job should last at least 8 years.
