Decal replacement/ ideas

My decals are showing a little age, not bad but would like to know if anyone has found a place who can replace them. Any help would be appreciated.

Take them off, clean the surface, mask the shadow and paint them. Places like NAPA stores or aby autompaint atore can make up spray cans i colors of your choice.

Thank you all for great information on decals for this great old gal. We keep her well maintained and this will be icing on the cake whenever I get it all done.
Thanks again.

Had mine done at RV Graphics last year. Did a great job and we stayed in the MH while they did it behind their shop in Apache Junction, AZ. They have electric hook ups and level ground, plus there were plenty of places within walking distance to eat and shop and to walk my dogs. My cost was $3200, which included removal. Send them pictures of all around your MH and Steve will send you a quote.

A cheap fix I have done on decals that are not too bad is to spray paint them with vinyl spray paint. SEM Color Coat works great and comes in lots of colors. Doesn't fill in the cracks but hides them pretty well. Some paint stores can custom mix colors for you, but I use off-the-shelf colors wherever possible as it's cheaper that way. I buy it locally for $18 per can but you can also buy it on Amazon once you know what color you want.

Here's a before and after in this photo of the door with the upper stripe not painted yet. You can see a little overspray on the bottom stripe, but it was just dry powder that wiped right off.

Bottom photo shows the finished brown stripe. Took about 1-1/2 spray cans to do that side. I haven't done the other colors yet but may tackle the silver stripe before too long.

Great idea too. One of my friends mentioned Krylon spray as it’s a vinyl paint supposedly. Thanks again.

The top green stripe was repainted and the top and front purple.
The purple is an exact match the green is close but if you do them all no one can tell.

Painted graphics

Nice job ! I’m really thinking this might be the best way to go. My 5342 has more but most are not too bad, I may try it on the swoosh’s towards the back where most of the fading is. Thank you for sharing.
