Default Removing Graphics and Decals on New ERA 70A

In an earlier post I reported that we have recently decided to purchase a 2016 ERA 70A that had just happened to arrive at the local dealer's lot last week.

While I understand that Winnebago is now providing a no-charge option of "Exterior Graphics Delete", the unit that we will be picking up late next week comes with them. Since I would have preferred a plain looking unit without such graphics, my question is whether they can be removed retroactively from the exterior of the unit. For those of you who had done it before, how did you do that and were you happy with the results? Thanks!

You can have the dealer pull them or do it yourself with a lot of fingernail action. I'd have the dealer do it if you don't already have the unit....

I would ask the body repair guy at the dealership. You don't want to mess up your paint job. I was fortunate that the one on the lot when I was ready to buy had no graphics.

It's great to hear that this can be done. We have not picked up the ERA yet, it will actually be the coming Friday. So I think I may still have time to ask the dealer if they could do it for me. Bob, could I assume that you did it yourself and how did it turn out?

Seems odd that an RV manufacturer would put extra money into something people(forum members) don't want. The swoopy graphics could be something people would have to pay extra for. Maybe consumers want the graphics ?

My wife likes them on our Roadtrek, I could do without. I did remove the Roadrek advertising, phone number, etc they had on the back, as well as some of the gaudy phony chrome logos.

Hair dryer and a some patience and finger nail work, plus a little GooGone for any glue residue. Not hard to do at all.

I had the dealer take about half of ours off. It's a 2013 that had all the swoopy multi colored ones. It was part of the deal when we bought. A friend of ours that had the same model, took theirs off with a hair dryer and his fingernails. Ouch!

When I got my 2015 70a home I removed every decal and letter on it. Including the "Winnebago" and "ERA" stick on letters on the doors and roof.
It now has absolutely no identifying markings and IMO looks much better.

I used a hair dryer to soften the glue before peeling the decals/letters. Then I cleaned the left over glue with Naptha.
It was a bit of a tedious job removing the residual glue but it looks great and there is no evidence of the lettering ever being there.. Have Fun!

I like my new van - it has no stripes like the old one. Also, Winnebago stopped using a Touring Coach badge on the hood and also removed the gaudy RAM Promaster badging. I suspect the former was for cost cutting and the latter to not dilute their branding.

We just came in from an hour session to remove a two foot section of an over striped Pleasureway. Not fun. Best way we tried was with acetone and plastic scraper. Tried heat gun with no luck.
Anyone know of another product that will aid in removal? We dread getting into the remaining stripes.
