Mike does a great job.

You need to post it on the NuWa owners forum.

Beautiful. No other way to describe it. The paint scheme looks a lot like the full body paint scheme option NuWa offered on the Champagne before they ceased production. Keep her shined up!

Thanks to all of you who made such nice comments on it. Yes, it was pricey to have done, but, since we plan to keep it for so long, it made sense to us.

The color scheme is actually from DRV Elite Suites. Mike's does all of the full body paint for them and I had them modify the scheme slightly to fit our coach. If you pull up Kona Sands on the Elite Suites website, you can see how similar they are. In fact, I had to get permission from DRV for Mike to be able to replicate it on mine.

We think it too looks great and was well worth the money. The other was so faded and cracked (and the roof had been patched due to previous damage) that we just thought if we are going to keep it, we might as well fix it up.

Now I am focusing on the interior (when we are not using it). I am redoing the tile backsplash, replacing the existing carpeting with new, replacing the wood floor in the kitchen, updating the bathroom fixtures, etc. I haven't decided if I am going to paint any of the interior cabinets or leave them the existing stained cherry. A lot of units now are coming out with white cabinetry. So, I need to do my research before I go down that path. Will post more photos of it when we go to the Tetons next month and when I really make progress on the interior. Thanks again for all of the kind words!

That really looks beautiful![emoticon]

I have contacted them for an estimate on our 30 foot travel trailer. I'll let you know what that turns out to be.

Like many of you, our trailer is in great shape even though it is 17 years old. I would like to keep it that way so my son can use it in his campground when we are done or gone.
