Welcome to the Forum!
I'm pretty sure that's a combination of gel coat and decals...

I have tried everything that I can think of, the best solution I have found is a good power buffer, polish compound and finally a good wax. I use Griot's Garage buffer and products but there are many out there. It needs to be done at least every year or 6 months. If you keep up with it the polish compound only needs to be done the first time or when it gets bad again. In between I have started using Wash and Wax All in between waxing. The first time will probably be a lot of work but you can do a little at a time if you need to.

My coach is a 2015 and I am in California where the sun shines most of the time.

Here is a pic of how it looks when finished. Don't give up, it is work but worth it. You could get a detailer but the guy that does my cars wanted $25 a foot.
