RV wraps new technology

Considering replacing the stock graphics on our 04 Brave, or a wrap with modern graphics. Any experience with newer graphics: application, longevity, preferred material manufacturer, other considerations? Thanks.Click image for larger version

Last time I checked the cost of a wrap job rivaled the cost of full-body paint, and I think paint would be a better deal in the long run.

I kind of wanted to investigate having the upper front, both upper sides and the upper rear done. (area's above the winshield height). Our front cap has been painted 3 times and is starting to peel again along with the sides and I see the rear starting. There was a company in IN that did it but I can't remember who they are. I thought I would able to get some info at our local RV show but nothing was there like that and there wasn't any info from any of the dealers either. I probably should just call one of these commercial wrap companies and see if they could do a plain color wrap that would come close to the coach colors.

I have a friend who does that for some local semi-trailers with their graphics. I seem to remember it being around $20/sq ft installed. The cool thing is you can get whatever look you can design!

They did wraps on a number of RV's on the Travel Channel show Rock My RV this past 3 months. They look cool. If you have the bucks I say go for it.

If you're looking for longevity I don't think a wrap is the way to go. I think their expected life span is something like three to five years. Great for advertising as you'll likely want to change that out long before then, but I don't think it's a long-term solution for normal use.

Yep ...look at the complaints about the appearance both 3M and Diamond Shield vinyl after 5 years ...now imagine that all over your coach.
