You’re an attentive RV owner, so you love to protect every
last detail. That includes ensuring your paint is protected from the elements.
While a paint protection film is a great way to ensure your paint is protected—and
can even be more effective than a coating, sealant or wax—it also may take away
from the natural shine of your paint. Your RV’s paint protection film also
makes it difficult or impossible to detail or repaint a surface. So what’s the
process for removing a paint protection film from your RV?
Here’s a simple guide to help you pull off the delicate job
of removing paint protection without damaging your RV.

difficult these individual materials can be to deal with. This is especially
true when working with adhesives and sealants, which bond so tightly to these
elements that the two practically seem to become one solid material.

working with different materials. Removing a paint protection film from your RV
can be expensive if you hire a
contractor—up to $5,000. This is because paint film can often require special
treatment that’s almost surgical in its precision. However, there is a less
costly and less time-intensive solution: a dedicated RV adhesive remover.
