Navarro brothers in Los Algodones, Mexico

My wife and I are considering taking our 01 National Tropi-Cal to Navarro Brothers in Los Algodones, Mexico for a paint job. The pale blue color that seems to be pretty common on Tropi-Cals and Seabreezes of that year is badly faded and oxidized. A paint job in my area (Portland, OR.) would be at least $10,000.00 and although this coach has very low miles it is not worth that much of an expenditure. I have read good things about Navarro Brothers in older posts, but nothing more recent than a year ago. Can anyone provide current information about them. Any and all information is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for any help.

Never heard of them. How much do they charge to paint a coach?

In the USA a partial paint is averaging $8-12K. A full body paint is $30K+.
What does the cost include? How many layers of clear coat? Will they buff out and detail the entire outside, including that which is not painted?
What kind of warrantee or satisfaction guarantee do they provide.
Ask to see before and after photos of their work.

Check out these other comments from another forum.

One must decide if they want to live and ride in something pretty or ugly. If you paint it, it will be a well maintained vintage classic instead of a junker. It will allow you access into parks that have 10 year age criteria for admittance as they only want pretty coaches. Ask yourself, Would you want to park next to you and see that every day while outside.

When we lived in Yuma we had Navarro Brothers do lots of work both body and mechanical on our cars and motor home. They always did a good job for us. 1/4 of what it would have cost in Yuma. another place in Yuma that friends of ours had a motor home painted was country rv.

Just got a quote from Navarro to remove & repaint 4 silver decals on the passenger side, repaint the blacks transition strips between the roof and sidewalls and upholster the plastic dash cowl on a 2010 WGO Vista. The quote was $1850, too much considering we had been told a full body paint job would be around $6K. This may have been Jose's starting point for negotiations but we're too busy to haggle right now. The work I saw in their shop looked pretty good although I didn't closely examine it.

I guess you have never removed a bunch of dried out decals have you? There is more labor in doing that than doing the paint work.

Hi, did you get the contact info for the Navarro paint shop? I want to get a quote from them to do a little body & paint work (I backed into a tree in Bryce Canyon).
