I have been reading some post in various forums concerning some Jayco units having problems with the paint on the front and rear caps. Most seem to be with the dark brown color used a lot on the Eagle fifth wheels.
Just wondering if anyone has heard if Jayco has corrected the problem or is working on it?
We are considering ordering a 2016 Pinnacle with the premium paint and would sure like to know if the fading problem has been solved. The dark color on the front cap of the Pinnacle with the premium paint makes me wonder if there might be a problem.
Just washed mine and had to get the big latter to get to the top Tops fading and I fired off an email to Jayco. We'll see how this goes ............... 2014 and fading??
Same dark brown as all the fading posts.

Learn from others mistakes, you'll never live long enough to make them all yourself.
We had our RV cap repainted under warranty the brown as the original color. The paint with a good clear coat should hold up very well. I had a black fiberglass car for over ten years with no fade problems. If I had ordered my RV I would elect the premium paint.

I have premium paint on my 2015 36KTPS pinnacle (very first 2015). I took delivery in February 2014. The dark paint on the front cap gets hot to touch in the sun. I wash and wax the trailer once a year and the front cap 4 times a year. No fading yet. I really like the looks of the paint job and no decal peeling worries.
