We have a 2012 st29ss and our front cap looks terrible. We are setting up appointment to take in to dealer for warranty work. I will let you know what they do.

We also have major fading on our front cap looks like crap, and the stone chips are horriable. We have a 2012 ST28FL. We have hadnumerousproblems with our trailer and the dealer is the worst! They have wanted us to fix the problemsinsteadof bringing it in for warranty work. WTH!!! We are contacting CrossRoads about these issues.

Andreah,
Good for you and that's what you should do. CR's has taken dealerships away from those who will not perform required warranty work. Do not stop until you get satisfactory answers.

We took our 2012 Sunset Trail Reserve back to dealership for warranty work. Front cap fading was one of the big problems. Crossroads paid to have it repainted with high end auto paint. Dealership told us they had had a lot of caps fade. Found out it was not painted with correct paint. No UV protection. Looks beautiful now. Crossroads took care of all of our issues. We are still having problems with slide not working properly. Will be taking back to dealership to have repaired before warranty is out.

Took ours in to dealership and they ended up replacing the cap with a brand new 2013 cap. Very happy with CR they have taken care of all are issues with no problems.

When we picked our 2012 31ss up, we noticed 2 faded brown caps laying by the dumpster behind the repair shop at the dealer...

Anyone here have this issue and not be a warranty issue? What I mean is we just purchased a 2011 Sunset Trail Reserve 30RE used and it also has a fading problem on the front cap. the paint must have been real crap as you can tell where the "For Sale" signed were taped to the front cap. Anyone had any luck with a remedy other than repaint?

I think doing a wrap on the front cap is a nice fix.

We had ours repainted while still under the warranty. Decal was removed and not replaced, which was fine with us. Looks good and we don't have to worry about the decal fading/cracking. Lazy Days in Tampa did a great job.

From what I have read on different sites, there seems to be a problem with the paint on the front cone. Thank god we noted it with the factory while we were still under warranty.
