Our 2004 Tioga 26Q has graphics that are faded and cracked. I'd like to have advice and a ballpark estimate for having graphics removed and replaced professionally here in Orange County, CA. I am not able to remove graphics myself still recovering from knee replacement surgery.

Unless there is someone in the business here you will not get any kind of even a ball park estimate. To get an estimate someone will need to inspect it and have an idea of what you want to replace them with.

There must be dozens of shops in Orange County that do this type of work. I just Googled and found all sorts of shops.

Thanks Chuck. BTW, was born in Stevens Point 1939, but have lived here in Socal since 1952. Was hoping to get advice from somebody who had graphics replaced locally . We have been RVers since the 60's but getting back into it after knee replacements, etc.

BTW, I found info here about the process and a rough estimate of $4000 for removal, buffing of siding and replacement of graphics:

Also got a rough estimate for graphics removal and painting instead of vinyl graphics of $5000 from a local shop

We've decided that our rig's graphics are cracked and faded but it doesn't look bad enough to have graphics replaced. We are not able to DIY remove graphics and prepare for new graphics.

On my old TT I had the same issue. My son knows a guy that works in a auto collision paint place so I asked him how much to do the trailer. He and his brother cam over on weekends and did the job. I got the tape from the guy mentioned above and bought the bigger ones off ebay (looked like a big c about 1.5 x 2 ft in size). I also purchased a eagle with flag for the rear and it was about 3 x 2 ft in size. So I guess maybe you go to a shop and see if anyone will do stuff after hours. Provided all materials tape, goof off etc and a place to work. Also bought bartenders cleaner (mild surface cleaner) and the white scrub pads. cost was less than $700 and I gave them whatever they asked for for the labor, forget the amount now. An alternative would be to go to a graphics shop and get an estimate from them and they seem to be all over anymore!
