I'm doing a demo/reno on a 1996 Jayco Eagle 10. Gutting it and turning it into a concession stand. The bones are good. The flooring is solid and the lift has recently had new cables put in. Someone had put an incorrect A/C on the roof aftermarket and it's too heavy, so the roof has a slight sag in it that must be remedied by removing the A/C and bracing the roof. Currently, it's completely gutted and next is the re-wiring that will be completed by my husband.

I'm working on removing the decals at the moment and realized I'll need to paint the shell. Can anyone advise on the kind of paint and the proper method for us to do it ourselves? We don't have a paint gun currently (Somebody forgot to clean it out on the last use) so alternative methods are welcomed. 250311435_4619121794867730_5751844080789453278_n.jpg 251114050_4619666938146549_134799461339211798_n.jpg

to update... i got all the decals off, even the ones that were painted over with Rustoleum, sigh. Now my issue is that he painted between the original three decal stripes with the rustoleum and it's next to impossible to remove. Somebody please please tell me how to get this mess off. Goof Off sort of works, but it takes a lot of it and a lot of scraping. Hoping someone has another method or a better product to use.

When the agency I worked for readied rigs for sale, they gingerly used a heat gun to soften the decals then used a plastic spatula to remove them. They followed up with an industrial grade eraser thing on an angle head grinder to remove the residual glue and bits. The only sign of there being decals was the color difference in the paint from sun fade.
