Over the past summer here in southwest Florida, the heat and sun ruined the graphics on the FG cap and Gelcoat sides. They are now curled up and cracked and I need to replace them. Newmar does not have the original graphics. Anyone here know of a stash anywhere. Newmar says I should check the new 5th Wheels out and pick one from a newer model.... Help!

There are various companies on line which will make vinyl replacements for you but if I was you I'd consider having them painted on instead. Then no more curling, peeling, cracking, etc. MIKE

I think the hardest part would be removing the old vinyl and compund buffing the coach to remove all the oxidation. Once this is done I would concider the cost difference between vinyl and paint. I think you will find there to be little difference in the end and the paint will add lasting value to the price of the coach. Good luck and enjoy!

Thanks for the resonses. I have contacted someone on-line who says they can replicate the graphics. He also suggested that I could take a phot to a local vinyl graphics shop and they may be able to duplicate it. I am also considering an air-brush design

Thanks again....
