We tried to use a custom made bra. It lasted less than 1000 miles before it started to tear apart. Problem is that the surface is not flat, the area near the driving lights is concave and it makes the bra want to tear due to no support behind the material. We ended up going with Line X on the slide out and it has worked out very well.

My paint is in rough shape after 110, 000 miles lots of chips and the mirrors have major paint peeling off. I have only seen one factory alpine bra and it fit real tight and looked great. We live in our coach fulltime, the down time it would take to have it sprayed with bed liner is a concern to me.

I had a nice new paint job on a lil sports car a while back and was talked into the mfg's bra to protect it....
Not only was it a mistake - it was a big mistake...

paint faded at different rates and as stated, bras chafe !!!!

I would suggest something like the 3m clear paint protectant like I did on the wife's audi...

Ref: Algoma post

About four (4) months ago I purchased a complete mudflap with the attached polished metal "Alpine Coach" plate from Duraflap/Motorhome RV Mudflaps. The quality and fit is exceptional - none better!

But, if you look at the Alpine Coach picture on their web site, it has a funny rendition of the name: The "l" and "p" look as though they are upper case, and just don't look right. Therefore, I got a copy of WRV's original logo from Magic Metal in Union Gap, WA (an original supplier) and sent it to Duraflap. This logo has the proper letter flow.

LeAnn and Dennis at Duraflap handled my production and can help you with correct logo. Reference "Bruce Hubbert" account.
