My 2006 flagstaff tt started doing it @ 2 years old. The green decals seemed to be shrinking the worst.

Wow, those do look bad. Looks like they put them on upside down too! Sure shouldn't be looking like that after only 2 years! I would contact Forest River. Not sure if they would cover it but you never know until you try.

Totally common today. Find a mobile graphics shop. They can duplicate and install new quality vinyl fairly reasonable. I found a fella through a local RV dealer who did my bad side last year.

will4u, where are you located?
Our Flagstaff camper is also 2 years old, and the decals are as good as the day it was built. Are we just lucky, or do different factories use different quality decals?

Is that the side of the trailer that gets the most sun ??? Mine look similar on the sunny side.

Take a hair dryer and remove them. You would be surprised how easy they come off.

With 30 + days of over 100 degrees last year the decals on side of our camper facing the South & receiving the most sun cracked horrible, the other side almost like new even though our camper is 5-6 years old.

I keep my decals waxed with a good wax like nu-finish and never had any issues. My son new 2012 roo was not so lucky after picking up his trailer from winter storage. Many decals were in need for replacemant. ( can you imagine on a 2012 trailer!!!!)
