Sounds like a difficult question to answer as I don't think the OP really knows. Maybe it is their first post but should have replied to you after 4 days of posting their first question.

Others have said that the Kampa limpets leave permanent rings on the side of the caravan and also known to detach the decals on the side if the limpet awning holes coincidentally meet up together. I use the 2 x vertical upright quick release poles instead which does no damage whatsover to the side of the caravan and do the job just as effectively.

Can't say I have noticed any lasting marks on the paintwork or decals but will keep my eye on it in future

yes they do leave a white circle on the decal as they did on our 2010 sterling eccles quartz, but ok on paintwork. we have a swift elegance now and have repositioned the limpets to miss the decal
