    How do you scrape off bumper stickers? I just bought a 95 Coachman Catalina, and there are bumper stickers galore! I want to get them off so I can get the rig repainted. Thanks. :cool:

    Your friendly hardware store should have the right stuff. Also, ask your painter. They deal with this problem all the time. :blush:

    Try a product called "Goo Gone". I've used it many times on many surfaces. Most recently on my '77 Fleetwing. I had a few stickers on my windows, and the Goo Gone brought them right off. You can find it at Walmart and various hardware stores. Hope this helps. :laugh:

    Be careful with the Goo Gone stuff. Yes, it works really good, but will discolor some things like siding, etc. It happended to me on my house siding when I was trying to get some caulking off. Had to buy some paint to cover up the discoloration, but that worked.
    Good luck.... ;) :cool: :laugh: :)

    I just bought a 95 Coachman Catalina. I love it. It had
    39000.00 miles on it.

    I think he just wanted to share my enthusiasm. :blush:
    Thanks all for your advice!
    I also have 2 large (I think they are vinyl) images on the sides- I think I will leave those big ones to the pros.

    Don't forget your hair dryer. Warm them up and peal them off.

    Goof Off is great but be careful and make sure you clean it up after you remove the decal. I would test it in a hidden spot first before you tackle the decal.

    alos make sure you are in an open spot or you will get a toulene high if you inhale the fumes...it kills brain cells and they don't regenerate. I can't afford to lose to many more of mine, my wife tells me.
