Need help/advise on clear coating '92 34' ft. Limited

I just purchased this Airstream. First AS I've ever owned. Sides are OK however the top clear coat is worn off.

Need advise on best clear coat to use to bring back to premo condition.

Thank you for any advise/help. It's all new to me.

There isn't a readily available alternate to the Airstream specified Plasticoat. There are only a few shops equipped to handle the application process for Plasticoat. I suspect that the one closest to you is likely P & S Trailer Service in Helena, Ohio -- they have been refinishing Airstreams for several decades. They refinished my Overlander over seven years ago and I am very pleased with the result.

Good luck with your investigation!

Kevin

I've seen P&S's work and I would concur with Kevin's assessment. Here's a link to a 34' trailer that they polished and clear coated. Note that this is a 90's era trailer and the owner had them use new graphics on the sides rather than the original's for that model year. Personally it came out pretty looking. The only give away that it wasn't brand new were the wheels.
