Not me. I couldn't get it off fast enough. I had it professionally removed without any damage whatsoever. Now looking to have color matching Rhino Lining sprayed on.

I went the bra route. Removed the DS, repainted the front. Had a bra made for the coach. Been happy ever since.

Gary,
We just got our first HM & it comes with the DS. Wondering about a bra for our Tiffin Allegro. Where did you have yours made?

Same for us. We removed the DS and repainted. Maybe a bra is the answer. We had a bra on a Revolution and it was great. Required frequent removal and getting the junk off of the felt, but it was worth it.

Hi Caswelld,
Wade RV made the bra for my coach. They are inside the Lazy Days dealership in Seffner, Florida. This is just east of Tampa on I4. I am very pleased with their work. One needs to take the coach to them. You can stay at the Lazy Days CG and they will come to you). Go to Wade RV | Seffner, FL | Located On Site at Lazydays | Sun Screens, Custom Window Graphics, Dashboard Mats, Front Masks, Wheel Covers, Entry Mats, Step Mats, Upholstery, Vinyl Repair and check them out.

Have used the "Bra" on several coaches and when they are sold the front looks as good as the day we bought it. Ordered our new Phaeton without the DS and Wade RV made it and installed it for $600

Just curious .....why go through the expense of removing the DS if you are going to cover it with a bra?

Hi dsbike,
For me, it is because the DS looks terrible and spoils the entire coach appearance. We have moved from touring to semi stationary motor coaching. We park for a month or more between moves. During this time I remove the bra and clean it as well as the coach exterior.

I've seen some horrible looking front ends with DS. Mine had mold starting, and when it starts it can't be stopped. It's best to just get it off and look for an alternative.

Had my Diamond Shield replaced, and I loved it. But that love didn't last long. Getting those bugs off now doesn't help either. I must have been out to lunch when I made that decision.

That makes sense, I didn't give that a thought. I am not looking forward to the day mine needs removed, it is on my 2013 Journey.
I had DS on my Mazda MX5, it started to deteriorate under warranty. Had it removed at my expense, about $150 then DS paid to have it reinstalled. But the shop that did the work used a different brand that looks much better & carries a 6 yr warranty. Most likely I won't have the car after 10 years. But here it is almost 3 years later & it still looks like the day it was installed.

Here's what I was told by DS when I was in the process of having my mold infested DS removed. They now offer a lifetime warranty.....BUT, if it ever goes bad they'll replace it, but will not be liable for any paint damage in the removal process. Not to mention the inconvenience of having to take it somewhere to have the work done. I was lucky in that I didn't have any paint damage, but a guy parked near me who tried to do it himself to save a few bucks had to have the front repainted.
