Replacement Decals

Hi All, hey thanks everyone for all you help.

I own a 2006 Winnebago View H (LOVE IT!) but the decals are showing age. Does anyone have a ball park figure on the cost of replacing all the decals? Can I order a complete set? I know the Winnebagoparts.com has the parts catalog but it appears they are all individual.

Thanks everyone for help in advance.

Pam

We fought with our decals. Faded, Cracking. Were unable to find replacements. And even if we did we would just be delaying the inevitable.

Finally got a quote to remove and repaint. Astronomical! So we removed them ourselves - much work! And had the shop paint them back on and shoot the coach with new clearcoat for about $1500. Your area will likely vary.

They painted them back on by following the sun fade shadow from the decals.

I have a couple decals that are cracked and faded. I was able to purchase two of the three decals needed. One decal was about $70, the second decal was about $250, and the third decal was priced at over $700 because they would have to recreate the decal. I purchased the two cheaper decals and plan to remove and replace tomorrow. I have read up on a couple methods used to remove old decals (heat method and decal removal wheel method). Should be interesting to see how I do.

Ours were faded, but not cracked. I just sanded, masked them off and painted them. So far, so good.

For that 3rd graphic, you may want to look into LOCAL vinyl wrap vendors that have CAD vinyl cutting machines. I designed my own graphic (solid colors) and had the vinyl custom cut and installed for $500. The shop was in La Habra, not to far from you. But I'm sure there are other shops with this capability.

This photo below is the RV today, which is now for sale. The high quality 3M vinyl they used was guaranteed for 7yrs, but it's been 18yrs since installed and the vinyl hasn't cracked, still in good shape. The green and blue waves and the Weekend Chateau text on both sides is what was custom made and installed. The blue skirt is paint. I originally ordered this RV from Fleetwood with no graphic vinyl because the stock graphics looked terrible. These waves were something I designed on my computer, I wanted to keep it simple.

Thanks... Do you remember the name of the shop in La Habra? I just need someone to recreate and cut the decal. I will install it myself.

As I mentioned in my post above, I installed one of my damaged decals today. It took my wife and I about 5 hours to remove and install the new decal. We took our time and I have a couple minor imperfections that I can live with. If you look close, you will see I missed covering up a portion of the shadow by about 1/2 inch. I also have a small crease on the lower portion of the decal. Not bad for my first time dealing with a large decal.

Not that this helps you much in AL, but the PO of my MH had the graphics, including the lettering, painted on in Mexico. It makes the MH look much newer than it is.

This is more akin to boat painting than auto painting so check out your local marine repair shops for recommendations. Compared to boat graphics, MHs are pretty straight forward since they're primarily flat work. I'd get prices for both vinyl and paint from the shops that do boat graphics.

Actually they are in Fullerton, right on the border of LaHabra. SBT Graphics.

The guy I knew back then was Tom Richie, the owner.

Thanks John. I sent a request to see if they are willing to recreate the decal. In an effort to cut down on the cost, I am willing to remove the old decal and apply the new one. I will see what they say...

I suggest you consider them installing the vinyl. They have the knack, and I don't think it would cost much more if you take the RV to them. They're pretty quick. But having the old stickers removed is a good thing, that's very time consuming to do that.

I agree with John. I've applied vinyl boat names before and there's a knack to doing it without air bubbles and, if you damage a piece, it can get expensive. Best to have them do it. Just get a firm price quote so there aren't any surprises.

John and Bob - I agree with your comments above. I would most likely have them install the decal. I'm sure most of the cost is removing the old decal and I am willing to do that. Thanks.

I e-mailed SBT Graphics late last night and I already received a reply from Tom today. Very pleased so far with the responsiveness, especially since it is a small job. He seems willing to do the job, but also recommended I contact the manufacturer to see if I can get the replacement decal. I appreciate him making the suggestion and possibly losing the business, but he was unaware I had already reached out to Winnebago Parts for the decal. I will probably have to drive the motorhome to him so he can see the color, size, etc.

Plastic razor blades are a wonderful thing for removing decals without damaging your fiberglass.

I agree... That is what we used with a heat gun on low heat. We followed up with "Rapid Remover Adhesive Remover". A lot of work, but came out great.
