For a front bra, contact Coastline Cover in California. However, some owners of coaches with bra's claim that the bra will scuff the paint from the wind etc. However, it is your choice.

I do NOT recommend the 3M front bra for protection. If you want to see the condition of one after a number of years in the sun, I can take some photos of mine and post them. I am by far not alone on this. There are many other Monaco owners with the same issue.

There is a company in the southwest, don't remember it just now but can retrieve it later that will put on a Tuff-Coat type of coating on the front. They can do it in black or they can match the paint scheme of the coach. Different prices for each.

When I decided to upgrade my front cap and remove the crappy 3M coating, the Tuff-Coat will be the ONLY thing that will go back on.

I would not bother with a bra, just make sure you have the front end waxed well.taking them off and folding up, not a big deal. Try and put a cold one on, not easy. You will be cleaning the outside of bra, the inside, plus the front end because the dirt and road grime builds up underneath. IMO, more trouble than they are worth.

Then get out there and have fun!
Thanks, Ive discussed this with a lot of folks and I feel the film is the way to go. But thanks for the advice, everyone agrees with what you have said....thanks again
