Paint Fading on front cap

Hi, replying to an old thread regarding paint fading on the cap of fifth wheels. Mine is a year and a half old and faded. Took the advice of the old thread and it is in the shop to be repainted. Guess because of all the complaints/work my Jayco dealer said Jayco will no longer do this work if itís over a year old. He said they changed the verbiage in the warrantee also. Only reason their doing mine is I called it out to them before a year was up and they had it documented. Might be BS but just a heads up if youíre in that situation.

Just noticed that in 2015 model that the same model had a white or brown front cap. Perhaps Jayco is going back to white due to the problems. Model is their HT 27.5 RLTS

We have an Eagle Premier 375BHFS on order. After seeing the issues with fading on the forums I checked around before placing the order and found out that the color was switched from brown to cream color on all units coming out of the factory going forward. I was glad to hear it because we really wanted an Eagle Premier but I wasn't going to spend that king of money on something that may be fading out in a year or two.

My front cap is fading on my 2013 365BHS that I picked up a year ago June. The caps on the lower corners of the bed slide have also faded from dark brown to beige .

Is your front cap gray or brown?

Maybe we are just extremely lucky, but the front cap on our 2014 375 hasn't started fading at all, and ours sits in direct sunlight all day.
