Has anyone had this installed on their motorhome? The revolution I just bought has a bra, which I don't care for and was thinking maybe the 3M clear film might be the way to go? Any idea what it costs? Thanks

Are you sure it doesn't have the 3M on it already? Many newer motorhomes do.

We had film (Diamond Shield) installed on the Mountan Aire a few years ago. Seems like it was around $1100 at the Newmar factory.

Not sure of cost as it was already on the motor home (Diamond Shield). It has saved the front from a lot of "road rash" It is starting to cloud a bit but otherwise in good condition and you can hardly see all the nicks and cuts from stones etc. If it was not there I believe the front would look horrible and "sandblasted" looking. I am glad it is there! I hope this helps some, Bill

Call Diamond Shield at 888-806-5862, or go to their website Diamond Shield. They will give you location of dealers near you and cost. Lots of information on the website.

I don't know how long you plan to keep your coach but you can be reasonably certain the film will be an ugly mess by the 6-7 year time period. Then it is an incredibly tough job to remove it youself ( with no helpful advice offered by 3m) Or expensive to have removed professionally. Mine took weeks of hand peeling little piece by little piece. Might be cheaper and less trouble to have the front end re- painted every few years.

This is definitely not a permanent solution and as said a royal pain to replace.

Then again, I guess, who keeps a coach 6-7 years???

Had the Mountain Aire for 7 years, Diamond Shield still looked good when we sold it. Now the Travel Supreme is going on 6 years old, other then the rock nicks, the 3M looks like new.

Just had my Beaver Coach done at Alliance Coach in Wildwood Florida. They installed 3M for $1300 and did a very nice job

I have the 3M invisible bra installed on my cars. I like it a lot. 3M is definitely the superior film product
