It makes so much sense,,,who cares about where it came from or it is pretty to look at...think practicality...washing it, wear and tear,,it is a no brainier!

We are having a problem with the decals on our Host camper. Have any of you successfully dealt with this issue? Our camper is otherwise in good shape and we love it but decals peeling off looks pretty much yucky. Thanks for any helpful suggestions.



We presently are having discussions with Host about the same problem. I seems that Host is contracting out the decal jobs to Driving Force Graphics. Their shop is about 1/2 mile from the Host factory. I have set up an appointment to strip and install new decals for $650. You can spend the nights in your camper while waiting for the job to finish.

I don't think a hair dryer will even come close to working.

Thats funny, I must have a crazy hair dryer because using mine has worked every time.

Obviously, you haven't removed the front decal off of a 2006 Host. BTW, a heat gun wouldn't work either.

the very best tool to remove decals is to go to a auto body supply store & get an eraser. it is just like an eraser on a pencil but it mount to a slow speed drill.

I removed the decal on my old Sunlite by peeling it off in pieces as it was in poor shape at 2 yrs of age. The glue residue was easy to remove with Goofoff.

My 08 S&S Ponderosa has peeling issues and I will be removing the decals shortly, (will probably need to try some heat). I did not replace the decal on the Sunlite and I won't on the S&S either. Looks a whole lot better plain white than pealing graphics.
