pro of full pain

My wife and I have decided on a 2018 Winnebago Navion 24D. Our decision is whether full body paint or not. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Do the full paint. Stickers do not last.

Agree with TucsonToy. Our decals lasted about 5 years then began to fade and develop "spiderweb" cracks. Used all the recommended protectants. Had them painted. Waste. After a couple of years, the cracks began to "telegraph" through and the underlying decals began to peel along the edges. Also, impossible to repair FOD damage and scratches from branches in the way of where we wanted to go.

Removed the decals, (not for the faint of heart!) had the design painted back on. At least FOD damage is easier to repair and MUCH less expensive than with decals.

Full body paint is the only way to go in my opinion. It has a very nice clear coat over it that is a lot easier to keep clean than the fiberglass with graphics. A quick wipe down with a wet microfiber rag and it looks like new again. Maybe once a year I'll give it a coat of Rejex and it's good to go.

I've had the graphics on a previous motor home and my experience was the same as other's have posted. Faded, cracked and permanently streaked and that was after only two years. Got rid of it by trading it in on our current, full-body painted MH.
