My 2005 Tropical has full body paint but it was an add option. Standard was decals.

Bill Capp has a 99 Tradewinds with full body paint. In 99 it was an expensive option. I think somewhere around 2005 the full body paint was standard, but only on the high end coaches. All the Pacificas I've seen have it. Most of the 2005 + Tradewinds have it.

Thanks Dick, guess we'll look around for a 2005 or 2006. Unless I get a good bid on removing my decals and replacing with painted on.

I have 2006 Seabreeze LX and vinyl decals. Decals not peeling but dull and won't polish up. Thought about painting over them

Was going to try painting mine too, wonder if anyone here has done. I figured I would mask off, sand with about 1500 grit and paint with automotive paint. Nothing much to lose, they look like crap now.

I saw a Class B MH in Vegas that the owner painted over the decals. Looked good from a distance, but as you got closer you could see the old dried and cracked decals under the paint. Best thing is to remove decals completely and then paint. After I catch up on yard work I plan on looking for estimates locally here in the Valley.

I had the decals on my 2001 Sea View replaced by Decal Drama. (www.decaldrama.com) They did an excellent job.
