Orange peeling

RV orange peeling

It is a shame that Entegra does not finish the exterior paintwork up to the very edges, as in my opinion this does let the overall finish down. We have questioned this lack of attention to detail and we have been told that this is the industry standard. Who would have thought that there is an industry standard approving unfinished (orange peel) paintwork on an $500,000 RV?!

You can totally live with the peels on the paintwork, they aren’t gonna harm your paint. If you do polish your car frequently, the peels will eventually be reduced over time, theoretically 😀 because each time you polish the paintwork, there’s some degree (minor) of levelling on the clearcoat.

For me, it’s an eyesore problem, even if you have the paintwork highly polished, the gloss and reflection just aren’t the best!
