Replacing decals

First off, I'm sure this has been asked many times before but the search function returned 9970 hits for the topic (not one of which had anything to do with the topic) so I figured I'd better just ask again.

DW wants to replace the decals that have started to curl on the edges of our 1999 Winnebago Chieftain. I'm less thrilled with the idea as it's neither a performance or comfort issue, but I've been given my matching orders so off I go to accomplish the task.

What's a rough cost for such a project and where can I find someone who specialises in the work? Thanks in advance.

Here's what I came up with on a search. Hopefully it'll assist.

You mean like this. The top pic is before and the bottom is after. My DW picked the changes and the cost was not that bad.

I always recommended to my customers to paint the stripes. Paint last longer and is most times cheaper.

Yeah, I should have just used Google instead of the site search. Thanks for the reminder.

After looking at the past discussions it seems like paint, decals and vehicle wrap aren't all that wildly different in price.

I'll make some calls later today and compare prices, but I'm still hoping to discourage her from the project. My rig still looks pretty good to my eye, and I'd rather put the 3k into more travel or something either to enhance the vehicles comfort or performance.

While she must be obeyed she can also be swayed.

Skip the decals. Have it painted. this is something you can do yourself if you have a place to do it. Heat gun to remove old stickers, plastic tape the edges, paper off for over spray, lightly sand, and then paint. Not that difficult to do. Have wife help out, brings out the artist in everyone. It is easy to paint because you don't need a paint booth. the sides are vertical so dust doesn't settle on them unless a strong wind comes up.

I bought mine with out decals. Winnie charged me an extra $200 for this. It was a big white bread box. I just painted it myself in my driveway, 18 years later, still looks good and I can easily repair/repaint it when I want to.

Nice look to it. Compliments to your wife, simple but elegant. So many of the newer coaches look like a huge seagull flew over and took a huge dump with bad stomach!
