Clear coat paint repair on a Fleetwood Terra

Hi all,

Anyone know what type of paint and clear coat they use on a 2011 Fleetwood Terra? Iíve got a patch of clear coat approximately 6Ē x 8Ē peeling off above the windshield, and chips around the windshield gasket. I had my MH in for repairs and inquired, but they gave me a price of $3200 to strip and repaint the front from the insect shield up, which is amazingly high for very little work.

Is it acrylic latex or what?

Almost certainly a 2 part automotive clear coat. Much of the cost would be in carefully sanding off all of the old without damaging the paint. This is one of those things where you can surely find someone who can do it for a lot less but you need to get references and see their work because there are some out there who aren't so good.
