I have a 2007 NL TC in very good condition. I just noticed one of the letters on the side of camper artwork is pealing up. Is there any way to save it? I emailed NL but figured I'd ask here too.

My newly purchased 2015 Lance 1050s cabover Lance decal was peeling and I went to wash cabover and the decal came off so easy with just garden hose pressure. I am leaving it off. Looks good without it.

If the decal is 12 years old it’s likely pretty crispy. If not, re attach. If crunchy, I’d just scrape the whole decal

So I'd it's pliable it can be reattached with one if the products above. If not, either trim or remove are the only options?

I'm of the philosophy that no vinyl looks better

I went for the no graphics look on my last one for just this reason (view profile). Sorry it's now creeping up on you. As it gets older it most likely will get worse and trying to replace might be a chore if not impossible. Did it sun fade badly?...if not you might reconsider and remove the rest of what you got before it becomes a permanent image. Just my 2 cents.

Heck the Texas sun made that Lance decal crispy and it is a 2015. Original owner might not have stored or covered it. I keep it covered storage now when not in use along with my truck from the Texas sun and occasional baseball size Hail!

The only two good options are remove it or replace it.
Maybe Northern Lite will sell you a new one.
You’ll probably have to heavily polish the gel coat if it’s faded to where you can still see the outline of the old decal, if the new ones are a little different.
There’s pretty much zero chance they’ve got any new-old-stock original decals because of the 2014 Northern Lite factory fire.

Been thinking about how much the free advertising is worth to camper mfgs.
Anyone try to get a new set of decals on the cheap from the mfg?

No decals on an all white box, to me, looks like an all white box....plus there's a 99% chance that the old decals will leave significant shadowing. New ones, even if not exactly the same, hide that from casual perception.
