welcome to the forum. The good news is this topic has been discussed many a time. Use Search to find what you are looking for. Look for "wrap" as "Paint" is discussed daily.
What you will find is full body paint is more expensive but lasts longer.
And the prices vary considerably. So, get a quote to paint as that is much more common.
What coach, where are you located? How complex is the graphics you are looking at? What level of quality are you looking to pay for? These are the major criteria for a price.

Are you truly looking for a "wrap" or simply the stripes like the factory puts on. A wrap is sort of a vinyl paint job where nearly 100% of the exterior is covered with vinyl. Stripes are what most factories put on if the coach isn't painted. They are two different things.


Personally I wouldn't think about anything but paint, it lasts longer, it looks better long term and it's not susceptible to shrinkage like vinyl, stripes or wrap.



Your coach your choice.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Go to the green search box at the upper right that says "Powered by Google" and type in "painting class A". That'll keep you busy for a while!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
