Question Best way to make white trailers white again?

Our 2011 Crossroads Zinger is starting to get dingy from years of towing, highway miles, and storage of the winter. Even with washing it a couple of times a year, it's still starting to get some of those gray/black streaks on it in areas.....and no amount of washing or scrubbing takes it off. It's especially bad on the front.

The only think I've found that works is buffing/polishing compound....but I'm not sure I want to waste an entire weekend buffing the whole trailer down.

Are there any cleaners/sprays out there that work to brighten up dingy white travel trailers?

Thanks!

I agree: but you'll also need a pretty liberal application of this product also:

Forgot to mention this, couple weeks ago I was at Lowe's and in the power wash section they had a cleaner called 30 second cleaner, white bottle, attach to garden hose, get siding wet, then turn valve to soap, spray lightly and then in 30-50 seconds, use a brush gently, it worked like gang busters on my siding. no streaks and clean as a like new. Try it on the RV.

Did you get your trademark approved for this, Bob?

Purple Power will clean the stink of a cows behind. spray it on, let is soak a bit but don't let it dry, wash off with normal car wash type soaps and a soft vehicle brush. My kids call it "Purple Jesus" because it has such "cleansing power".
