    Could you take your van to a vinyl signmaker and ask them to copy it and stick it back on the van.

    One of my Hymer plastic logos suffered uv degradation and started to come away in sections. Superglue did the trick for me (y)

    Double sided cellotape will not do any harm to the vehicle.

    Thanks everyone, i have tried superglue which didn't hold, they are now held on with gaffa tape. I think they are metal/plastic coating. Thank you.

    If its the older Hymer with the crinkly alloy, the only stuff that will definitely stick the stripes back is Sikaflex. They are prone to falling off, so check them all.

    I can't believe anything would fall off an Hymer, being German of course. :):):)

    Yes, as @Snowbird said , crinkly alloy is nigh on impossible to stick to.
