Who has peeling decals on their RV and just leave it that way even though it looks terrible because the price to have them replaced is too expensive. Mine are peeling off but one place wanted to charge me $135 an hour just for labor. My unit is in fairly good shape otherwise even though its ten years old. Maybe I'll get a new one next year who knows.

If you're physically capable, removing them is not technical. Sort of tedious but not technical.
I'd rather see a ghost stripe than a chitty looking decal.

If you have time and patience you can take them off yourself. A hair dryer and some glue remover will work. If they are just peeling and not cracking you should be able to finish the peeling process. Just work very slowly and make sure they are warm but not hot. It has been done many times before. Good luck and be patient.

I took my decals off the front and rear and put new ones on myself. Pretty labor intensive. But looked new again. Many just remove the old ones and go naked.

Finish scraping them off. They only get harder to remove,,the longer you wait. Craig

Ya, it is the labour. Took my front cap decal off with a combo hair dryer & chemicals to get glue residue.

Took it to the sign maker. One hour later the new decal, a blown up picture that we had taken, was on.

Excellent quality material. Four years later it looks like just applied.
