Geeze, too bad that Mike's Custom Painting no longer takes individual customers. We had our 2002 Itasca painted by him, around 5 or so years ago. It still looks like a brand new motorhome. Totally removes everything, blue-inks, sands, primes and painted up to 4 colors. Separately paints awnings, mirrors, etc. and it is truly a factory job. At that time, I think it was 12k.

I remember that there were a few good shops near the Tiffin factory in Re Bay, Al. Expect to pay $18k these days, but if your motorhome is in good shape other than the exterior, it's worth it, as you know what you've got vs buying an unknown for a lot more money.

I would contact them and ask them. Everytime I go to Algodones I walk down and see what they are painting. Must get them there somehow.

Thanks for the feedback on Navarros
I read a long post on the IRV site and the guy said he had to get on the roof of his RV and move electrical wires up so his wife could drive the RV down the street as they were too low and would have caught his AC units

Did you guys encounter any of this ?

I second Navarros. Send them a picture and what you want. They do top notch work. 2 years ago I sent them a picture of what I wanted on a 38' Monaco and they quoted me 13 to 15 Thousand. Sold coach and got a newer one. Was just down there and they don't seem as busy.

Well Dave based on the quote I got I might as well buy a new RV.
I asked for one side, clear coat at the top of the RV all around, and a few spot clear coat repairs on the other side.

Estimate was $19k

But I will go back to them to review the specific's and see if we are on the same page for the job.

also just called Xtreme paint and graphics in Nacogdoches and they do not do full repaint anymore. So I am talking to them about doing 1 side at a time.


Hmmm, how does that work?
Do you wait a while & make another appointment?

Finally got around to calling Mikes, and they no longer do customer paint jobs, only do paint jobs for new factory built RV's.

So the search continues

I had my 2003 Providence done at Mike's Custom Painting. Located in Indiana. It took over 4 Months to get a date. That's how good he is.
Took 3 weeks to complete. A choice of 5 different colors. He straps everything off the coach. A complete factory job.
It cost $15 K. But the job is super.
I can send pictures if you get with me.
