Question Class A Repaint - Reputable Locations (Michigan)

My husband and I really love our 2003 Holiday Rambler Endeavor. Since it only has a partial paint job and decals, it's starting to show its age (fading and cracking decals). It is great shape otherwise. We just as soon put some money into getting the ol' girl pretty again, but don't know where to start. We live in Michigan. Does anyone know of any reputable businesses in or near Michigan where they do full body paint jobs on older Class A motorhomes? We know we're probably talking $10,000 - $20,000 for it to be done right. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

As we've traveled as full-timers, this company is widely recommended and Elkhart, Indiana is close to you.


(I don't know why the word 'menu' appears but the company is Precision Painting)

I have not used Precision Paint, but I have read a lot of good reviews about their work. As mentioned above it is a little bit of a drive. Good luck!

We had Mikes Custom Painting Bremen, Indiana repaint ours in 08. He done most of the painting for Gulfstream coaches at the time. They done a great job and it still looks like new for a 2004 coach.

We had our fifth-wheel repainted at PPI, or a better term, overhauled.

The PPI price is higher than Mike's because of the inclusions in the price. Four colors, remove silicone and replace after painting done, paint all awning hardware to match, 3 coats of primer minimum, new AC covers painted to match, replacing all slide seals, replacing all the exterior lighting with LED marker lights, replacing the vinyl trim, 8 hours of body repair, replacing and painted to match vents and refrigerator covers, window frames painted to match, sidewall of slides painted to match, 3 clear coats.

When done, our trailer was better than new. Be sure when price comparing that you insure everything is included. Mike's is more ala-carte.

Another Paint Source

We had some paint work done by Pro Custom in Elkhart Indiana and were very impressed with their work. The owner used to work for Newmar and apparently still has a great relationship with them because they handle some of their overflow and repair work.
