Only if you wax it REGULARLY! Paint lasts far longer and looks better for years longer.
We've had both and paid over $7,000 extra for full paint. And, yes, I've had boats too, wish they ad been painted as they always looked dull due to the gel coat oxidizing.

thanks for the posts....a friend has his wrapped... going on 2 years now... have to see how it's holding up.. but .. Nevada sun eats them up quick..

agree with mr_d.. paint will last if taken care of... I garage my stuff..

what I see failing is the clear coat shatters /checks....then you have a mess..

Agreed.

After owing motorhomes and boats with both- gelcoat is the longer lasting of the two in my experience.

The white is not only classy and clean, it will give FAR less headache of the years.

Painted Rv's look great - for a while - color matching a repair after a decade of sun is an excersize in " good enough".

Nice setup 2FF

Looks good

I like the all white, and it would be great in certain areas as far as showing dust.

I recently bought a 36' and also thought many of the paint schemes were over the top. I think this is done to break up the large surfaces on a big coach. I like how ours looks and I bet it would have the rolling billboard look without the graphics, but the white looks great on yours.
