I have a 2003 Winnebago Adenturer 38G that we really like. I have been looking at coaches to upgrade my situation. As you know, they aren't cheap, and have been thinking maybe just cleaning up the Adventurer. I would like to have the exterior totally repainted, striped, and detailed. I live in the Mpls/St. Paul area..... My question is this: What would something like this cost, and does anyone know where I can get it done?? After having the outside done, I want to have the interior all detailed and upgraded..... Any ideas?

Sure, Precision Painting in Elkhart Ind. Outside around 15 grand and it will look fantastic. They also do interiors.

Take a look at Phoenix Painting I've seen their work and it is beautiful at reasonable prices.

Joe, there's a paint shop in Los Algodones (just across the border from Andrade, CA.) I can't remember the name a snowbird neighbor of mine had there coach painted there and a lot of my neighbors go there for dental work also. If your not familiar you cross the state line from Yuma, AZ. to Winterhaven, CA. and it's south of Winterhaven. From what I seen a bang up job for the buck. It will be worth checking out on your next Arizona trip. Just jump in the tow car and check it out.

There's an independent company that does Winny's painting. It's name is CDI. A couple of years ago, I messed up the rear corner (darned tail swing). I fixed it myself and went to Forest City to pick up the parts I needed. While there I talked to them about repainting the whole lower half. They quoted $1800 which I didn't think was to bad. I ended up having a local body shop do just the rear corner instead for $450.

Precision Painting is in Bremen, IN. just west of Nappanee, IN. They painted all of the Travel Supreme MH's and Fifth wheel trailers. They now paint all of the Entregra MH's. You can reach them at 1-866-909-4473, ask for Dan Miller. www.PrecisionPaintingRV.com

As mentioned they do interiors, body repairs, service, etc.
They often work on Prevost, and other high end MH, including painting Stacker trailers to match Prevost or other MH's.
If you want the best, they can't be beat IMO.

I like the one that JROOSTER suggested. Nothng like getting your teeth fixed while you wait. Does the same guy do one in the morning and the other job in the afternoon?

We've been living in our MH over 10 years and have also decided it's better to keep/update rather than replace. We have an appointment with Precision Painting beginning of Aug and cost is exstimated between 15-20 thousand - depends on what pattern/colors we finally choose. Since we'll be "homeless" for approx 3 weeks during the paint job, will be living out of suitcases with several friends/family in WI. And we have been replacing items inside also (couch, curtains, tv's). Been debating replacing the ceiling "rug" with vinyl. And also haven't decided yet on what to replace the foor with. Our MH was paid off within 3 months of buying it and we aren't looking for a monthly payment of any kind! We decided to go this route because we figure we have another 10 years of fulltiming ahead of us and a smaller investment of 25,000 to redo the whole MH is alot better than buying a new one! You never "make" money when you sell a MH anyway so have it look and operate the way you want it to! Just have fun with making the decisions and during the process!

If you want to make a trip south to Red Bay AL you can get an excellent full body paint job for about $7500. You have your choice of colors and as many stripes as you want. If you have slides he charges about $500 each, that is for painting and striping the ends of the slides. There is no reason to pay $15k to $20k for a paint job. Use the money you save to put on the interior which you can also get done in Red Bay for a decent price and excellent work.

I think you are doing the right thing. We have a 02 Adventurer 35U and can't find a floor plan we like better. So we are just keeping it in good condition and will keep it for quite a few more years..Just ordered and recieved new decals..
