A nice shiney caravan...

My recent acquisition, a nice Eriba 320GT, had been in storage over the winter. The storage yard was an area set aside in a farm with around 20 different caravans and motorhomes parked up for the winter.

My van (well, its mine now!) was stored in the open with a fitted cover giving a good degree of weather protection.

I bought the van and collected it from this site. The van looked great, although a bit dull as it hadn't received any TLC since the previous September.

When I returned home, I noticed some very dark, grey patches on the bodywork. I decided to give the van a light T Cut (the paint on caravans are reputedly quite 'thin') which certainly improved the dark patches. i then gave it a coat of Autoglym Polish.

I continued with the polish, and gave the GRP roof a good polish. Very easy to apply and buff up, and in the rain tonight, water is beading all over the van.

The finish I got was superb. Very happy with the results.

I reckon I will probably re-polish every couple of months.
