You need to check out the license requirements,, Now I do not know the precise language in Michigan for when a "other than basic driver's license" is required as it pretains to something like this, but I'm thinking that you might need an upgrade if you get paid to drive the vehicle, which this purposal clearly is.

In the old days it was a Chauffer's in Michigan, Today it might be a Chauffer's or a CDL (They are different) I do not know, I also do not know if you'd need a medical card.

The bottom line here is you need to research, Cause I do not know and thus can only ask questions.

It may also affect the registration of the vehicle if it carries advertising (other than for the dealer who sold it).
THANK YOU , All great point's , I am trying to do the research and all this info you guy's are giving me is great because I would not have thought of all this on my own , One of thing is, i'm sure it will be different in every state and I wonder if you are within the law in your registered state if your grandfathered in when traveling just like driver's license and such " in Florida you don't need air break licence and in other state's you do but when you travel they will go buy the law where your Rv is registered "

I'm waiting tell I find out all the basic's before I talk about price and mileage and zone's as far as city,state and country .

I'm not a tax guy, but I think you also incur the full Social Security taxation, and maybe employment taxes. Your not just selling your services as a vehicle but also you as a driver. Someone has to pay Uncle Sam SS.

I definitely think you'd find takers for this, especially around younger (non-retired) RVers. The license requirements are important to understand, but I'd also think about how you're going to track mileage travelled (i.e. are your customers actually driving the 500+ miles that they need in the area required). Also I would try and understand how the wrap affects the coach (i.e. adding/removing wrap...how easy is it? does it affect the underlying coat etc.?)

Interesting proposal for sure.

I suspect that a wireless connected GPS could feed real time information to a home office. Not that difficult and not that expensive.

I know for a fact that that many campgrounds include a "no commercial advertising on your RV" clause as part of their campground policy. At those campgrounds, you cannot have ANY sort of a sign, placard, etc., either on the RV or on the campsite, so I'm sure a wrap would be a most definite no.

I checked this out because I was thinking of becoming a distributor for a national company. I found out about the rule by checking campground rules as we traveled along on our first RV trip. I can't give a percentage, but it was a common enough rule that I decided against being a distributor.

Lightbulb How about your own wrap?

I don't want to drive anyone's advertising, but I always thought a wrap might be a great alternative to a repaint.

I did some pricing around Houston, and it can be done for $3500 - $4500. They will supply graphics to use or use my graphics (photos). I was thinking about some of my flower and bird photos.

I was told a wrap should last about 8 years - just about what's left in my own tank. But I think I have to sell it to my wife first, so it's not going to happen this year.

We looked at a used Dolphin that was wrapped. The dealer had removed the actual film, which he did as "busy work" for his crew, mid-winter. That said, he still had dozens of hours to go yet, as the thing was covered with adhesive and still looked like a piece of trash. I'm far from an expert, but I have removed all the vinyl lettering from one of my work trucks, and know how some RVers have been through hell getting the various brands of clear shield off of the front of class As. Like WheelingIt astutely notes, I would be real clear that you are not signing on for dozens ( or hundreds) of hours of miserable work getting the wrap back off.

As a non retired rv'r I would love to do this, to offset the cost of owner ship and a reason to drive my rig when I don't have a trip!
