Default Peeling on Front Cap

I have a 2008 Class C Gulfstream Vista Mini Cruiser.

Does anyone know whether this is the Decals or Paint that is peeling from the Front Cap area (see photo).

What is the best way to fix this problem?

Thanks

That is the clear coat applied to the paint to make it shiny.

That does that on most rv's that have a paint with clear coat on them.

We had that problem on our Vista Cruiser Mini. Took it to a local auto body shop and they were able to match the paint using a computer and it looks like new. We did not replace the decal and really donít miss it.

Thanks for your response.

Did the Body Shop have to repaint the Front Cap, or just re-apply the Clear Coat?
How much should I expect to pay for the job?

Thanks

The front cap was repainted. I donít recall the exact amount but my husband recalls about $1500Öbut that also included a leak repair in the same area. It really does look like new!
