I guess I wouls start with some fine rubbing compound to remove oxidation and then apply a good Carbala wax.

On my 04 29BHS I just traded the decals on it dried , bubbled and started pealing off , looked terrible. I stopped by my dealer who is a exclusive Jayco/Starcraft dealer and was told they couldn't get replacement decals through them or the factory. I came home and did some internet research and the best info I could find is that at least on my 04 model is the decals where made through a "mom and pop" vendor close to the factory and was going to haft to try and contact them for replacements. If I had not traded my plans where to take it to a local painter to remove the old and paint them back on.

Why replace the decals? there are lots of good shops out there that will custom do some for you and then it will be YOUR trailer not a cookie cutter trailer.... If you use good taste it might just ADD to the resale value of your rig...

I have had a couple of PM's asking about the graphics company I found that supposedly does the graphics for Jayco. This is the company I found but I never contacted them so I can't say for sure. They are in Ind. and it does say on their website they are a supplier to RV manufacturers so I would would say the odds are pretty good. http://www.valleyscreen.com/

THABULL - just for the fun of it, I have gone to the valley screen link you provided, and asked whether or not they provide graphics to Jayco, and if they have any left overs for my 2004. If they respond, I will post what they say, in case it would benefit anyone here. Thanks for the link.

No problem I'm curious myself for future reference. I don't need any decals now because I bought some new ones a few weeks ago attached to a new TT! LOL I just wonder if the decals are only available through the dealer for just so many yrs. after production? The 29BHS(now 28BHS) is a popular floorplan with very little changes over the yrs which make me think not.

Have finally gotten an answer from valley screen. It seems they did indeed start providing decal sets to Jayco starting with the 2005 models. In my case, they have been able to match up their 05' designs with what a competitor provided to Jayco for my '04. Some colors are obsolete, but the good news is they still have their designs, and can even print the "Designer/tree" decal. Individual pieces are also available - you don't necessarily have to buy the whole set. These people (specifically Shirley) are very helpful. No cost yet, but they are working on a quote for me as we speak. JFYI

Cool I'm glad I led you in the right direction.
