I am having the front my coach painted due to some damage sustained when in the shop. Does anyone have any good idea for reproducing the "Alpine Coach" lettering on the front of the generator slide? I would imagine they used a stencil at the factory but now with the factory closed, how could I obtain such a thing? I guess I could leave it blank since it is an orphan now...

Engineer Mike has a good idea.

Since WRV has left all of us hanging, maybe we could all become Country Coach or some other brand and we could go to their factories and get our issues taken care of.

I too, am looking for a front end decal. Buddy Gregg Motorhomes in Knoxville, TN may be able to help me if their source has the correct font to make on. If I score on this I will let the forum know. Meanwhile, if anyone can help me find one, I would appreciate it.

Your icon looks like the Autumn Tan exterior color scheme used on the 2003's. If yes, do you have the paint codes and Brand name? I am urgently looking for these for my coach.

I just had the front painted on by 2001
only three colors. The shop had a machine that cut paint masks for the lettering. Used the original on the coach for sample. the lettering is painted and done before the clear coat, so the front is smooth, and after buffing you don't feel the edges of the colors or lettering. My cost was 1320.00 an then were done in about three weeks.

My coach was dammaged while it was at the RV shop so they are painting it for free. Althogh they have already done it once and it did not come out to my standards so I am having them do it again. Originaly they tried to just touch up some of the colors, the second time they will paint all of the stripes this is why I need a new stencil.
