Curt, I am going to south Texas for the winter, then in the spring was planning to work my way out more west (Arizona, NM, and then heading north.

Ok I will let the cat out of the bag. Was planning on posting later in the year, so
I will be posting our travels as they get firmed up. Will be offering my services as a Painter and plastic removal if anyone is interested to any WOG members.

Returning back to the east coast for the fall. Will probably go the northern route and swing into Indiana to help out two WOGers on some paint issues.

Anyone interested please contact via email or phone.
Thanks
Sean

Do you know what brand film was used on the Wanderlodge's?
Doug, when the plastic is removed, the paint is like new. The plastic film keeps the UV rays off the paint and usually the front looks like it has a new paint job.

Brand BB used is not really known, but I think it was 3M. Not the best PPF back then.

I have removed just a few 100's of this stuff and one thing I have learned is that once it is removed the owner's love their coach even more. To the owner, it's like get a new coach all over again. The wives love it even more, they don't have to listen to their husbands complaints anymore.

BB used 3M film.
When it first started failing 3M would pay to have it removed,BUT,you had to put new 3M film back on the coach.
I knew several guys that did that.
Now Seans taking it all off again!!

Where did they all put this stuff?

I can see below the windshield and across the the lights.

It's hard to tell in those narrow areas in red

Doug,
Usually they didn’t put it above the windshield.
Below the windshield all the way to the bottom of the cap/bumper. The red Circle below the windshield it may or may not. To find out, take your finger nail and first drag your nail across the paint on the side of coach. Don’t Don’t use much pressure. Nail should glide easily. Now on the front in red circle on picture try there. If it feels the same then no plastic, if it feels different then it’s plastic in that area. Hope that helps.

Thanks it appears nothing above the windshield and nothing below the lights but seems it is on the fiberglass light housings.
