I want to replace the fiberglass panel that hinges down over the front window. The cover has a scene that is faded and is looking terrible. I touched up the paint once but it just doesn't look nice. So I need the part name so I can source it. Any suggestions? 1991 Coachmen, 21'. The type of scene doesn't matter much to me, and I am very handy so I could cut a larger one to fit. Thank you!

Perhaps "rock guard" will suffice, unless there is some brand specific term.

Had a similar problem years ago with an old Terry. Finally found a piece of fiberglas that I painted to match, but it was not easy. If you have a large plastics supplier around town, might check with them for a piece of plexiglas.

Thanks for the help. "Rock guard" is the key word I needed to search. I found some salvaged panels that were much worse than what I have. I will resort to the plexiglas if I have to. First I am going to try painting the scene myself. I tried spraying after masking before but this time I will try thicker, brushed-on oil paint with a clear coat over top.

Check in some of the major RV supply catalogs. Most of them carry new ones, I know STAG does. The biggest expense however is shipping, as it's not UPS'able.

I replaced mine with a product called "Coroplast", corrugated plastic, comes in various thickness and a rainbow of colours, easily cut with a box cutter and pretty rigid. Dirt cheap too, about $25 for a 4x8 sheet.

FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) is available in 4x8 sheets and looks like the same material used on the exterior of most RV trailer doors.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't ship a rock guard via UPS. We receive automobile creepers shipped UPS. These are about the same size, dimension-wise, as a rock guard. However, I'm sure they weigh a lot more, especially if they're wooden variety.
