Tape them off, light sand, and spray paint them.

There are several of us who have painted over stripes. It sure made the motorhome look fantastic again.

Fleetwood won't have them any longer, so you have to go to a vinyl sign/decal shop and have them make whatever you want (either same or a new design). Otherwise, peel/sand them off and paint on a new set.

You can buy rolls of vinyl decal that you can make your own pattern. Most of the stripes are just straight lines. I am sure amazon has many.

You can buy a Bounder decal aftermarket. I have one sitting some where...forgot to give it to the Bounder buyer.

I'm looking to replace the Bounder decal on my coach. If you come across it (Or them - the ones I've seen are sold as a pair) would be interested in selling them?

As others have stated, paint them yourself.

Mine were pealing on the edges so I took a razor blade (the kind you use to scrape paint off of windows after painting) and used it to remove the pealing part. I kept some of the larger chips and had paint matched to them.

Then I took some 400 wet/dry sandpaper and scuffed up the decal.

Next, mask around the decals using some of that blue (or green) tape that is designed to keep paint from seeping underneath it.

Then paint! I actually used a paint brush instead of spray cans but only because I couldn't find the color I wanted in spray.


My out of pocket costs were far less than having decals made and installed.

Very nice work!

FYI: I believe Sherwin-Williams can color match and provide spray paint in aerosol cans in an automotive paint. IIRC this service is only offered at their commercial or industrial stores (not the local SW stores).

An automotive paint store may be able to do the same.

There are spray cans that you put your own paint in the jug (any color). Available at a body shop supply parts department. And certainly they can mix the right color paint too (never cheap). If you don't own an air compressor and spray gun, that's the next best thing for smaller repairs. If it's a full panel or more, rent the right tools for two days.

Or just go to Walmart and find a color that is close or a color to your liking and just paint all the decals. Krylon sells a spray paint that is drip free, which has more glue/adhesive mixed in the paint.
