This is especially valuable for RV’ers with custom fitted RV windshield covers as they can be expensive to replace. They can also be quite difficult to find depending on the year and model of your RV.

The first item required for this RV repair / mod is the paint. There are several spray paint options that will adhere well to vinyl and fabric. The folks at Cheddar Yeti used  Rust-Oleum Automotive Vinyl and Fabric Spray Paint. There are competing versions from Dupli-Color, VHT, and PlastiKote. Rust-Oleum and Dupli-Color have the widest range of applications judging by the reviews.

Preparation is simple. Take the various components of your RV windshield covers and be sure they are free from dust, debris, etc. Then, follow your chosen paint products direction for applying the new color to your RV windshield cover.


The typical can of spray paint can cover between 5-11 square feet so plan accordingly. The Rust-Oleum Automotive Vinyl and Fabric Spray Paint drys in just 15 minutes to the touch. This should mean that in 30 minutes or so you should be done with this project. We recommend giving RV windshield covers 24 hours or more to air out before installing in back inside your RV.
