I just got some ballpark quotes here in Houston, and it looks as though my 34' Winnie could be done for about $4,000 - $4,500.
Well it's just different look?

Paint is under $500

Ok, thanks for the info. You are well equipped.

I am set to paint, but need to get enough air to do the touch ups. Presently am air challenged......

Not enough CFM from smaller compressors to keep pressures up if you're painting continuous. As pressure drops, so does air volume, and the paint starts spitting instead of misting.
How do you see your CFM compared to what the spec sheet says for the type of paint you intend to use?

I'd love to use my pancake for the stripes, but not the main box.

My MH has a LOT of stripe decals As I was removing them from the bedroom slide, I learned that the black stripe has been over-painted and it is killer hard to get the stuff off.

Paint stripper, Easy Off, Zylol, all do a small bit, but it will take 2-3 hours for just one 6' stripe. That makes doing the rest of the coach a major time-investment, so I have you ask you guys that have done it; What is the BEST solvent on the market for removing decals?

Is the Black a decal or Paint and what is your plan ? To just remove the decals and re-do them or paint the whole sidewall ?
I have used the 3m Eraser that takes the decals off and doesn't hurt the paint.

Nice job on the Photo Shop- Wish I could use that, don't have the software or knowledge, But I like the 1st one, really adds allot of class.
I've been touching up a few places while I'm home for a few weeks and I'm having both of the sidewalls redone in Brainerd MN in a couple of weeks while I'm up there Racing. I can do the smaller paint projects but need help with the sidewalls.
Steps : The ugly old paint looked like black primer so I removed the steps and, sanded and shot with a very nice solid black under coat made by Dupli-color.

It is a decal that was painted over with a very sticky paint. My guess is that black decals draw so much more heat from the sun that they shrink well before the others are even looking stressed.

Three swipes of paint stripper and the area has been glazed, sanded and washed. Rest of the day is drying time and perfect weather in the morning to paint what I've done so far.

I'm trying an experiment (unless somebody has the BTDT t-shirt already). The decal above the black one just laughed at stripper, so I glazed the edges and scuffed the whole thing with 220. I'm going to paint over the decal and see how well it holds.

Anybody don't that yet? I'm using Interlux Brightside, a boat paint.

Boy, if that decal is really dried and the glue is dried and gone, I know the Interlux would do the job for sure.
I have done a few boats and that paint just lays down with just tip and rolling. Also did some fine wet sanding, then hit it with the big buffer and she came out like she was sprayed on in some of the places that did not lay down and almost a run.
On some of my own boats, I would call them my 20 - 20 boats paint jobs.
Looks good at 20 feet away and or 20mph in passing

I am hoping to here how this came out for you as my RV is a Mess. Lets see if I have some pictures to share. She sat in the San Diego sun for 10 years with no cover..
I also need to dig off whatever they used on the front cap to main roof and rear cap seams and then use the Marine 3M 5200 which will move and be good to go for 5 or more years.
The insides of this look nice, everything works great, but you can see, the paint makes her look bad.

Thanks, Softtail. I'm removing any decals that are flaky, and considering leaving the other ones after glazing edges and scuffing with 220. I'll know more after the test run tomorrow.

While not knowing what a comp door is...isn't important, what's important is seeing how you've faired the edges and layered up the substrate.

You'll do well! Let us witness the finished results with a photo or two.
