Restriping a 1999 MountainAire 37’ coach

Would like to get a price on restriping the outside of my MtR home or is there anything that will bring the decals back to life? They are faded and dull.
Any place in Michigan?

Try Zep on a small area and see what you think.The colour will not be enhanced to any great extent,but the overall gloss will be pleasing and would eliminate the constant waxing.Much has been written here in this forum on that subject.

Several of us here have repainted the stripes with automotive grade paint and an airbrush. Takes at least a decade off the looks of the coach.

I have used "Awesome" at Dollar General or one of those small discount stores. Use to be $1 a bottle and worked very well. Don't work too big of area because if it runs it will bleed onto the white.

I had mine stripped down to the base white and had brand new 3M decals installed, in a pattern that I designed. (looked nicer than came from the factory) They also put on brand new name badge decals.

This is the only thing this shop does, and people come from all over the west coast.

The cost including a full exterior detail was about $3500, however it looked so nice I then had them repaint some of my storage bin covers that had accumulated some dents scratches.

I'm in the process of stripping old decals off and painting. Looks like paint and materials alone will be over $500. Three different colors.

This is what I did. Easier to post a link rather than rewriting what I posted.
