Hi Marianne and George. We just traded in our 03 Essex for the 07 model. After the initial problems with the RV dealer dulling the finish on the Diamond Shield it was replaced and we never had another problem with it. We had it replaced in 04 and looked almost new when traded this past February. We have the diamond shield on our 07 and it has preformed great so far. We are sorry to hear that you have had so many problems The only other film I know of is made by 3M and we had that installed on our 01 Mountain Air and it worked fine. You are right Avery does make file folder labels.
We hope you will enjoy many wonderful miles with your 03 Essex. Carl Snyder is the high line coach customer Service person at Newmar and his phone number is 866-463-9627. Carl and the team that works on the Essex coaches are a wonderful resourse for questions. I think you will probably get more information from the actually Coach owners on this web site. We have also started an Essex Club through FMCA and our web site is www.essexmotorcoachclub.com
we hope you will join us and we can meet at one of the upcoming rally.
