Our 2013 250RS like many of your trailers, has extreme oxidation and discoloration of the front cap. Have any of you punted and had the front cap painted? What did it cost? How difficult was it to get new graphics? Are you happy with the results? Does anyone have picutres of the finished product to entice me into considering this repair?

My had the fading also. I had it professionally detailed and had some Ceramic Pro coating put on. So far it's been 2 years since I had it done and still looks good. I have a feeling it will eventually come down to having it repainted. The detailing with Ceramic Pro coating cost about $600.00 which is pretty cheap compared to getting it repainted.

Wow Tourdfox that does look good! I'm gonna wait for mine to fade again to get it repainted. Hopefully better paint than the one Keystone put on it.

At least with mine the problem is that it isn't paint. It's a fiberglass gelcoat that reacts poorly to sunlight unless it is constantly maintained. That was something the dealer forgot to mention when we purchased the trailer.

Mine was the same gelcoat brown also before getting it painted,. If your keeping the trailer i would paint it in a heart beat.

Here is another option. Seems a little too easy to me.

I have NO IDEA what the cost is...but I remember reading somewhere that people were having their nose cones wrapped in an automotive wrap to prevent this...

Meguiar product is working great to restore the shine to my RV. I applied this product with a random orbital sander with a foam applicator and buffed it out by hand. It removed the oxidation and I followed up with Meguiars pure Rv wax and it lbs looking good!
