Our front cap on our 2016 Crusader has started fading and we are at 11 months. I will say though that our dealer ( Northgate Rv Center Ringgold Ga.) is on the ball and we should have the cap painted within the next two weeks.

They are going to paint it back the same color which I am fine with. I was just glad that they were able to get to it before it's out of warranty.

It's amazing to me that after several years of this that the new trailers are still having this problem.

I saw pictures of new Crusaders and noticed they had the cream color caps. Maybe the trend is changing. Ours faded and Primetime repainted at 25 months out. I believe they told us the cap warranty was 30 months. I know its longer than the rest of trailer. Ours is a 2014 and it faded virtually overnight, cause we had our eye on it.

Our 28RL faded after just owning it for 6 months, but 3 Way Campers in Kennesaw, Ga.
Got approval and it's being repainted and new decals right now.

I have cap fade on the front and back of my 2014 Sanibel. 26 months after purchase the caps faded. I contacted Prime Time about 30 month warranty and was told the warranty starts on the day of manufacture of the cap, not purchase date. Was told my caps were over the 30 month limit and there was nothing they could do. My 2 year warranty was expired but luckily had been extended by Prime Time due to many issues I have had with coach. It is currently at the dealership being repainted. Just be aware cap warranty is from date of manufacture, not purchase. Check before coach warranty is up.

Our unit is a 2014 bought in October of 2013. We noted fading two years ago and were remiss in not reporting it then. The fading intensified this year and when we turned it in our claim was denied because it was beyond the 30th month. It's a shame as we covered it or had it inside for six months each of the last two years. I read in a recent publication had a Grand Design with the same scenario and even though it was out of warranty Grand Design repainted the front. They didn't want their units in the field looking that way.
