We bought a used Winnebago Vista. Previous owners had it in Florida for 2 yrs and never did any wax or protection and now the gel coat is in really poor shape, it's dull and porous. Is it possible to get it re-gelcoated? Any idea on what type of firm does this? Would it be less expensive to get it painted?

I just did my old 94 motorhome with Poly glow. It shines like a much newer unit. As long as you follow the directions exactly, it will restore the faded gelcoat finish to a great shine.
