Hi Baker,

Generally speaking, peeling paint is a sign of either a water leak, or a poorly cleaned surface prior to paint being applied in the first place. Just because you cannot see signs of a water leak in the vicinity of the peeling paint, doesn’t mean that you do not have a leak somewhere else, and the water is tracking and pooling in the area you can see.

As far as a repair to your painted surface, without scraping/sanding away all the paint you will always see the repair. I would suggest you speak with a caravan repairer and ask how they would tackle the problem. However, before undertaking repainting, I would further investigate to determine if you do have a water leak.
