Custom paint from CDI on our 2013 Itasica. I did not like the standard paint jobs offered.

Talking I think

I would have mine re-painted in the same colors, Done in Emeron(sp) with 3 coats of clear. I added the white strips with 3M Reflector tape, really glows when headlights hit the side of the MH. I couldn't find the brown that was there and I think the white looks better.
I would like to have a black rig but I would have to dust it off every 10 minutes LOL I might go with Ghost flames or Ghost swirls In Black if I had a Black MH.
Happy Friday. Tim

Two Tone works for me ... but swirls are quite popular.

Not all are dark. And some have fewer swirls and more whooshes, and not boring at all! Click image for larger version

I kind of like my swishes, and it is paint



If I was to repaint I think I would use the same colors but go for something like this

We saw two bounders with similar stripes this past summer. They looked brand new so, gasp!, I thought the swirly paint fad had faded...

No offense to those of you who like swirls. Some seem to have at least some degree of shape and color coordination, while others appear to have been taken at random from a box of tape swirl decals, and just thrown at the vehicle.

Ain't that the truth! Or how about those outdoor scenes with the wolves or whatever that they used to paint on the back of the 90s coaches in the cutout where the window used to be? A graphic of a Bunch of kids with their faces pushed up against a window would be a great replacement.

To each their own. I kind of like a little color, both in a nice garden and on my coach.




Yes I have a few swirls, but they sort of remind me of Florida, where we now live. Plus they tend to break up the large expanse of wall I would otherwise have.

So like I said, to each their own!

FW used that paint & scheme for just 2 years. I don't know what paint/topcoat they used, but it wears like iron if kept waxed at least once a year. Then they slowly started migrating to the swirlys like many other mfrs.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

What about paint?

I am pretty anti swirl also. Our tt is brand new, with a few swirls on the sides and a huge brand name on the front. I am thinking of removing the decals and using one of the large wall stencils I have seen online, and paint. I'm not sure which paint would be best, though. Seems like paint, if done well, would last longer than the vinyl stencils. My husband does not like the idea. He likes the swirls.

It looks like they gave you the "Swirl Bonanza" package!

If you like it then it is cool. The colors are nice. It looks like they had a few swirls left over and put them on the back there.
