The shop that did my original install on my Mazda told me he would not do a car that was repainted unless it was heat dried. Auto manufacturers run the car through an oven after they are painted. This makes for a much stronger adhesion of the paint. I assume that most motor home manufacturers do not heat the paint after being applied to the motor home.

The paint on all newer Tiffin MHs is baked to 174 degrees.

Years ago when we toured tho "old" Holiday Rambler- Monaco plant in Indiana, body painted coaches were also baked.

The OP asked about covering DS with a wrap. Wrap will adhere to the DS, but vinyl could be subject to rock and road debris damage. Vinyl is tough, but it can be damaged. Bugs will wash off the vinyl easily if they aren't baked on.

The cool thing about vinyl wrap is that is easily removed and replaced. There are a wide variety of colors and patterns. And, wrapping the front of a motorhome is very simple. And, you can purchase vinyl in small quantities at approximately $2.00/square foot.

I have DS on my 2008 bounder diesel. It still looks great and has protected the front rocks chipping the paint. I can't understand what the problem is that people are having with this product. I keep my clean and waxed with plastic wax and it looks great.

Just to add another 2 cents the 3M shield is just as bad and will crack and mold as well over time. Time is different depending on where you live.

I have to agree. I've seen several coaches with issues but generally the entire coach is ill kept. This issue has been kicked around the forum many times. Seems fifty fifty regarding those who have problems vs those that don't. I've had no issues but do treat with Rejex and 303. Note: we live in hot humid FL.
