Yes it does. It means they have more money than we do!
did you imply they care less about the rock chips?

I'm pretty sure that's the outfit I was referred to a few months back when I was looking for parts for mine (it might even have been you who directed me to them). I contacted them and was told they stopped making the lexan shields due to diminishing demand for them. She was nice enough to have someone check old and obsolete stock for me but no dice. I think the OP will find a dead end there.

For what its worth, I've come to see these things as just a visual accessory that has fallen out of fashion. Yeah I'm sure they have some marginal benefit but probably aren't worth the cost and hassle to have them. I had been wanting to keep mine just for the "period correct" look it has, as I remember seeing them on all the high-end coaches back in those days. I work in the Jeep aftermarket accessories industry and I see these Coach Armor shields as similar to a lot of the stuff sold in my industry. Much of it is useless, or at least, useless to the person who bought it but will never need it. They buy it just to bolt something on to their vehicle because they think it looks cool, regardless of its marginal or non-existent functionality.

Diamond Shield removal

What worked best for us was a clothes steamer applied directly to the front of the rv and then peeling or scraping off the stuff with plastic razor blades. Takes several hours. Then, to get the glue off, use Rapid Remover which you can purchase through Amazon. None of the other suggestions I read worked on our coach. Good luck.

We're talking about the Lexan shield, not the 3M type film.

The 3M clear protection would do the job and look better. Can be replaced at any time. You can cover anything with it, body, bumpers, mirrors etc.
Would really update the look.
