Sorry I should have been clearer,
I have a 2019 Spirit M22……. Cap was Gold/ Brown colour ….. never was my favourite colour….. so I went to my 3M wrap guy and he and I came up with black and white combo….. you can’t see in pic but matches black stripes on side and Ford white…… the cap colour was a pet hate of mine…. Now it’s gone…… pic is from “ice Field Parkway in Alberta Canada”

Hi Dean,
That really looks great! I know some folks with the 2018 caps have experienced severe color fade. How much did your 3M wrap guy charge you? I have heard two numbers to repaint the cap; $2,000 and $2,500.
Thanks, Eagle5

Hi Eagle 5,
I paid $850 cdn, but I did lend the wrap guys 2-- 8 foot class A step ladders and rented a plank to go across front of rig for $ 20.
I just did a trip to the mountians, and another bonus.....Bugs just wipe off....
I wax my MH in the spring every year, but bugs can still be pain. if they dry on , but 3M was awesome, just an extra bonus. Im thinking maybe putting ceramic on it next year .....

Wow Dean - that is a great deal. $850 cdn converts to about $670 usd, so this is about 70% less expensive than painting. Having your motorhome in the shop for just a couple of hours is also a huge benefit as well. 3M does make great products.
Thanks, Eagle5
