We are the original owners of a 2004 Alpine Avalanche 400. We have had it in for "paint bubbles" over 5 times, and have given up (over 135 days of down-time).

I heard that there was a posting by a member with similar problems, but could not find it, and would like some help with possible resolutions to this problem.

Thanks, Drives like a dream, looks like a nightmare.

There has been an ongoing re-skinning of Newmar and Tiffin motor homes due to a bad batch of fiberglass skins. Apparently the bonding agent Dow Corning used was not cured properly and was causing paint bubbles. I know a Dutch Star and a Zephyr owner that have had their motor homes completely re-skinned and painted at Dow Corning's expense. I don't know if any WRV products were involved.
