Best RV Paint Upgrade Services

We are on the tail end of our inaugural 2 month trip with our 2001 Newmar DSDP. We enjoyed the trip immensely and are now willing to invest in a body paint upgrade. We are seeking professional, high quality shops to do this work, preferably in MN or nearby. I have contacted three providers ABC in Faribault MN, Jim's Truck, Trailers and CoachWerks, Winona MN and CDI, Forest city IA. Does anyone have any experience with any of those shops? Any other recommendations?

Thanks for any comment or thoughts!

I had CDI full body paint my Journey in the fall of 08. Excellent quality and service. Still looks like new and get many compliments on the paint.

I have used ABC Bus in Faribault and was very satisfied. The work was covered by insurance so I can't comment on relative costs.

Will depend on how many base colors and how many coats of clear you want. Also, if you want all your awning hardware painted to match and if you want any slides painted to match the walls.

Generally, $15 - $20K +/-.
