So far on my decals on the front cap where it gets most of the sun, I have just "washed" the peeling, brittle edges off. Still looks 1/2 was decent like that.

"Flagstaff" came off the front of the trailer the first time I washed it. The way I felt about the trailer at the time, it didn't bother me one bit. Wayne

My front Graphic on my Cardinal has become very faded after 8 years but I found someone who will duplicate it in the color I want and the Cardinal will be 14 inches tall and in a different location. I had thought of taking it all off and putting a UPC bar code on the front but the wife didn't think that was as funny as I did! LoL

Unhappy Decals

The decals on our 5er are lifting on the front cap, where it gets all the sun, rain and bugs when driving. Planning our first major trip of the year starting next week for the month of June returning July 5, so I don't expect to hear anything from dealer before we get back. We are hoping that FR will cover the cost as the dealer knew about the problem last fall.

I remember on the older trailers like the terry taurus I had. The front emblem and graffic on the opening awning for the front window was painted instead of decals.

seatosea, while shopping for our new camper, I saw a Flagstaff like yours on the dealer's lot, and one of the letters had already fallen off.
It now read Fagstaff.
That made me wonder if the factory cleans the cap after installation. Maybe there is some mold release agent or some other contaminant on the surface. The decals should not be falling off a brand new camper.
The decals on on our camper seem of pretty good quality, and I imagine if the surface was prepared properly, they should give years of service.

DonG, my g is peeling so if I take it off or it falls off it will read Flastaff.
