painting a coach

I was wondering how much a full paint job would be a 40 foot coach. I would want to change the color and design. I do not need to paint the roof because I have coated the roof in white rubber. Can any one give me an idea of the cost. I would also like to see some coach paint job pictures and the price paid to have it done if anyone is willing to share this. I was wanting to possibly paint mine but I have no idea of what it would cost.
Thank You
Chris

I would say a paint job would start at $ 15k. The paint and colors will increase the cost as will the complexity of the graphics and the labor involved. Here is one I can recommend. There are others that are good too. You might tell us where you are located now and where you might be when you are ready to do the job. I am sure from our pool of members we can recommend a shop close to your location.

painting a coach

CSP,

Having just gone through the process and picking up my motorhome tomorrow, I would say that you are somewhat in the ball park on price depending on what you decide as far as design and type of paint. Our coach is 34' with decals and we had all that removed and a full body four colors plus four clear coats paint job. We live in FL and checked with the Indiana companies that do paint and decided to go with WDBODYWORKS in Orlando. The owner's name is Walter and he will work with you on price and design. We will have pictures next week.

I've seen some very nice full body paint jobs done for around $11k, Anywhere from there to $20k, depending on the quality and complexity you want.

painting a coach

Thank you to every one for the responses. I am located in Terre Haute IN. I am looking forward to seeing some pictures and if you will share the prices paid for the jobs and if you are happy with them. I heard it was cheaper in Mexico but is it a good quality job and will it last. I heard that fiberglass is hard to paint. Beaverjim I will give you and anyone else on here who wants to E-mail me pictures and information my E-mail on here because I do not know how to PM it to you. Sorry. It is csp@netzero.com.
Thanks again
Chris

You have two excellent RV paint shops near you, Precision Painting in Bremen, IN and Mike's Custom Painting (574-546-2161), also in Bremen. I suggest you visit or call to discuss what you are interested in doing and get some ballpark price quotes. If you visit them, you can see some works in progress and get a feel for the quality of the job.

Mike's did a coach for a friend on mine and he is very pleased. It looks great too. It was an 02 Tradewinds that previously did not have full body paint, so it was a major job with a custom design. Price was around 11k, as I recall.

Check us out at:
Phoenix Paint is just north of Elkhart, Indiana. Quoted $200/foot of length. I had them repaint the lower portion of my coach 4 years ago for under $1800. Great job. They do 5th wheels and Phoenix Coaches, but are not a part of that company. I would encourage you to talk to Michele. It is a small shop that does quality work.
