I got too close to a hawthorn hedge on a journey which resulted in a scratch along the side of the caravan.Any ideas on the best way to remove them from the acrylic windows.
Thanks

I think that Fenwicks do a caravan window scratch remover. In the past I used a car headlight renovator paste/ polish which worked okay and didn't seem to be detrimental to the windows.

Thanks I will try the Fenwicks remover
There is also a light scratch along the paintwork, some have tried T-cut and said it works, but elsewhere I’ve read don’t use it because its too abrasive on caravan paintwork.
I do have some touch up paint which I have used before on small areas but not on a line nearly the length of the caravan

If the scratch is not too deep I have had good results with Autoglym super resin polish.
