I have just done some on mine and I used the same colours but different design from differing companies and mixed and matched It came out reasonably well.
I approached a local company and asked for a quote to copy theoriginal but without the intracaies . They quoteD £750 I did not go there mine cost £80 and probably better anyway. I got them off the Ebay from Fatstripe They have loads of differing designs big and small.

Since 1996, had Elddis/Swift/Rapido/Rimor/Chausson MHs. Autocruise/Globecar PVCs/Compactline i-138
Unless you have a very modern MH then I doubt it is that important to match the stickers to the originals, indeed many dealers used to have their own decals for their 'dealer specials' so there are many variations on some models anyway. The only thing I would suggest is that you don't stray too far from the basic design and colours though, especially the shape of the decals, as when you remove the originals you could find the paint under them is a different shade!

How difficult is it to apply the decals?

Simple answers for a simple girl appreciated!

Quite easy
Clean area, use masking tape to position decal, spray a weak solution of water/washing up liquid to the clean area, remove a small amount of the backing and at the same time squeeze the decal to remove air bubbles starting from the top,
If it isn't sitting right then the soapy water will allow some repositioning,
Take it slow and it isn't too difficult

Thanks. I have put the film on windows to make them look like stained glass and the application method is pretty much the same. In our last house I did 6 windows each 6ft square so should be able to do the door on the motorhome which has three separate decals.
