Ours is coming up on 10 years old and no checking. We did have a spot above the door that the clear coat was coming off. While we were having some work done at Winnebago they took it over to CDI (the paint company of their coaches), and they fixed it. No charge, said they probably didn't prep that area right. Couldn't have been more pleased and it looks like the day it was made!

The brown full body paint on my Camelot has crazing in the fiberglass as does the orange and copper color, but the lighter color doesn't. The orange and copper color paint has much less crazing than the brown. I've checked the temps on the paint with my IR thermometer and the dark paint is much hotter than the lighter colors. I apply the 10' rule when dealing with this crazing, i.e., if I can't notice it at 10' it's a non issue.
