I am looking into getting my 1999 Damon Intruder painted. Full body paint 36 feet with 2 slides. Anyone know the cost?

Think $7,000-$10,000. I'm sure others will be here shortly to give other estimates.

It has a lot to do with what part of the country your in also. If you plan your winter in AZ perhaps Yuma, you can have it done in Mexico at a more reasonable cost. I've heard good stories about their work but I haven't seen any first hand.
Even at 10,000 to 12,000 dollars,its still a heck of a lot cheaper than trading MH's.

15,000 plus for 4 color custom design high quality. It involves removing all existing paint, as most quality paint shops won't paint over any substrate that may cause their paint to fail. They will remove all hardware, but in most cases the windows will be left in. Repair work, and adding anything new will drive the price up.

In my case the cost was a little over 19,000. Was it worth it? well when I get the comment from others about my new coach, I just smile.

Part of cost to paint my coach was repairing damage by a Mexico paint job, some seem happy about their Mexico paint, but in my case it was a disaster and I would not recommend anyone going that route.

Lot depends on the number if colors, design, fades, body prep etc. Places like http://www.creativecoach.com/ start in the $12,000 range and can go to $30,000 plus range. This is really not bad when you consider it in relationship to a single color car repaint with clearcoat at $2000 plus.

I figure those $299 paint shops will do it for $1000.

Deaton body shop in Red Bay painted our friends last summer for $7,000 on a 36' with one slide and did a very nice job.

Minimum $10,000 depending on how elaborate you want the "swishes" to be and how many colors. Any cheaper , you aren't getting a good paint job.

I called Denton in Red Bay 3 months ago, I have a 36Ft Phaeton. He quoted $7000.00 to me also. Note: he does a lot if not all of Tiffins factory work. That should be viewed as a good thing.
