That happened to one of my cars. It was a chevy van and it had to be repainted. Something has gone wrong at the factory and for whatever reason it did not hold up well. You may need to have that section repainted like I did.


Good luck.

I am also thinking this is a gel coat flaw in some but not all brown caps. Surely we would all be dealing with it if all were defective. So far mine has no oxidation.

Friends had same problem with the cap. Dealership took camper back to have front fixed. it was still covered. No cost and looks great. The paint mix was off on a batch. Lots of luck.

Have custom image put on the cap.

Mine is not the champagne color but is a brown gelcoat cap and it was pretty bad on mine as well.

Mine is now a painted and cleared cap and looks great. I said screw the decals and never had them put on. I do have them however in a tube and the dealer said they were $1900 just for the decals. I am unsure of how much it would cost to paint it as I never did ask because it was a warranty item but $3k seems to me the price they said if it was a non-warranty job.

I do know I am glad I get up on the roof to inspect it at least twice a year as well as inspect the sides when I wash it. I find lots of little areas that need attention and that keeps the "big hog money dog" away!!

Good luck

Mine started fading at the beginning of the summer. I've seen the brown front faded on other Crusaders so I wash and wax my front pretty regular from the beginning, about 3-4 times a year. I use a quality marine wax. In my opinion I think it's just one of the cut corners of Prime Time. Would be nice if they stood behind their product but I have learned since I bought the Crusader your pretty much "S.O.L."
