Removing Old Stripping RvFlyer1 4-26-12  
Hi Everyone,
I'm taking the stripping off my
1995 Chevy Flyer, made by fleetwood. this class c model was made for the rental company's(Cruise America)
So I'm writing this to anyone who mitte want to take there old-cracking and peeling strip's off and here's what to do and what to get.
1)Steamer; believe me it works, I tried heavy pro car vinyl remover NO NO NO. all it did is take a lot of heavy strapping and if you don't keep wiping it off it starts to peel away the paint. The steamer works great, the price range should run around $30 or more. The hotter the steam the better.
2)Plastic razers, for scrapping and vinyl off (you can use a plastic putty knife if you want), slowed me down a little.
3)Pro. grade Goof Off; Cermical grade plastic gloves and alot of eldow grease(strangth) this would be to get the adhesive off - use the plastic raver to help and paper towles. Don't waste your time and gas money and look for a different type of remover, I have and Goof Off Pro. works and it does not peel away the paint or harm the RV fiber sides. If I could I would send you a before and after pic, but no way to show it here.
So hope this helps out for anyone who would like to take on this task, when I get it done and start to redo the stripes I'll let you know how I'm doing and How to do it..
Thank you

Hi RV Flyer, another suggestion... a 3M stripe removal disc (other brands available). It's like a big round eraser. Put it on a drill and it removes vinyl stripping without damage to the surface and pretty fast. Get 'em at auto paint supply store or ebay. Good luck
