Has anyone ever repainted their front cap themselves? I cannot afford $ 2000.00 to have the rv dealer do it. I also wonder if a plain wrap would be cost affective?

I Have no idea of what a wrap would cost or its durability but I sure would not be taking the unit to a RV dealer. There are paint shops all over capable of painting all types of material.

I just rattle canned a used tractor I bought and it came out real nice. Anything is possible.

I was thinking that but it is fiberglass and I do not want it to look worse than it does already....

A little patience and a quart of acrylic enamel and a good spray gun and compressor and you could do it. the devil is in the masking and if you do it outside, be sure there is no wind or you might have neighbor issues.

Too bad you are in Florida. If you were closer, I'd have you bring it to my place and I'd give you a hand. Not complex really.

Bob, have you decided on a color? I have a buddy who caught something on the lower part of the front cap of his TT which was replaced. The new one needed
Singed so he spent a little extra and had it done in a two tone with one color matching his truck color. Your front cap would look nice matching your truck.
