Class A Full Wrap
« on: July 22, 2017, 12:16:07 AM »
I suppose this is somewhat of a remodel, definitely a face lift.
Today I finally finished the design for the vinyl wrap for my home. As soon as they print and laminate it, I can install it. It will be a challenge, but Iím excited about it.

Hope it doesn't cause too many accidents on the road.

I Worked out a trade for for this by doing some installations and design work for the vinyl company.
I can ask and find out what it would usually cost to wrap an RV like this.

Where (city and State) is this being made?

I assume that if any graphics are on the coach they would have to be removed first?

Stretching over the coach will not be easy and then cutting around all the doors and windows and basement doors etc will be tricky?

How many people will it take to do this job?

If you do it yourself, please take pictures as you progress along with the project as I think a number of us are curious about this.

I live in Flint, TX.
Yes, Iím in the process of removing previous vinyl graphics.  Itís the most annoying part of the process.

There will be no real stretching involved with the install, as most everything is flat.
 Cutting out the windows is easy.
I will doing the install by myself, but itís definitely not something Iíd recommend for a beginner.

My son-in-law had a wrap business in Boise and has done some amazing projects.  He just sold his business when they moved to American Samoa this year.  I sent him your photos. He was very impressed with your graphics.  Nice job and well done!

I've thought several times about this over the years, wondering how it worked out long term....

Dougie's still active here. Maybe he will see this thread, and go back to his old thread and give us an update.

Thank you!
Itís definitely the largest project Iíve done.
I think I spent almost as much time with a tape measure as I did on the computer.

Most of the graphics on all of our RVs are the same vinyl application procedure, just in smaller pieces instead of full coverage. Itís very durable as far as not peeling, but now thereís also a laminating process that keeps it from fading over time like most older RVs you see.

Incidentally, mine already has a previous full wrap, but it was done in layers instead of a single printed design.

The people who did the existing wrap did the black as one layer over the factory graphics without removing them, then added the other graphics on top.
