Well you have really perked my interest, can you explain more about the Diamond Shield? It might be the way to go!

Thanks!

If you use the Google search box at the top to search the forum for 'Diamond Shield' you'll see much the same as if you search for 3M clear bra. Pretty much everyone is cursing the covers and asking for suggestions to remove them! I think these things are put on RVs by dealers or new owners, not by folks that have walked around campgrounds and talked to owners. Dealers use it as a selling point 'extra' like car dealers offer undercoating and Scotchgard seats. It's a revenue enhancer. Save your money so you can repaint front in the future and don't tailgate.

I met someone on one of our travels that had a Dutch Star. It was a very well kept motorhome and what I found interesting is that he had a clear plexiglass "shield" custom fit to the shape of the front end, and it was installed with short, clear upright, 1/2" height washers to keep it off the front of the coach. He had stainless screws going through the plexi shield and screwed into the front end.

This allowed him to take it off to wash the front end. I believe screws went into threaded inserts that were mounted into the front end.

I have a different thought. My Diamond shield has started to show the cursed mold and cracking. After I remove it, I'm going to check into getting the front sprayed with LineX. The same stuff as in P/U truck beds. I saw one where they were able to match the color of the coach. It looked great and should last forever. Unfortunanetly I wasn't able to talk with the owner, since he was going the other way. But I will be trying to find out about it. If anyone has any info, I'd appreciate a post.

Wrong type bra (I think)

He was asking about a bra...not Diamond shield. I have seen them made from black vinyl so why not clear vinyl? Most just snap on.

Ever see a vinyl back window in a convertible over time? I'm afraid your clear vinyl bra would yellow and show all the dirt and bugs caught behind it while traveling. Probably not a pretty sight!

We use a thick vinyl bra with cloth backing. It came with the RV, I have no idea who manufacturers it. Lots of ArmorAll keeps it shiny and makes bug removal easier.
