Vinyl Wraps for Motorhomes
Car wrapping is all the craze—but vinyl wraps aren’t just for sports cars and luxury imports. Any vehicle can be wrapped, including motorhomes. Whether you spend your life on the road or simply enjoy the freedom and pleasure of the occasional road trip, you’ll be intrigued to learn what wrapping can do for your motorhome.
4 Reasons to Wrap Your Motorhome
If you’re on the fence about wrapping your motorhome, know that there are some very good reasons to go through with it—and almost no downsides. Really. Sure, wrapping your RV might not be cheap, but it doesn’t change how your motorhome drives, it won’t lower its resale value, it doesn’t make it less safe, etc. At any point, you can have the wrap removed and restore your motorhome back to its original condition. Some other reasons to seriously consider wrapping your motorhome:
1. Make Your RV Stand Out
There are a lot of motorhomes on the road, and a lot of them look alike, especially the newer ones. Vinyl wrapping is a great way to customize your RV, give it a personality, and help it stand out on the road and at the RV park. You can give your motorhome a mild facelift with a color-
change wrap or go full-bore with custom graphics, animal print designs, and more. In any case, vinyl wrapping will make sure your RV looks anything but stock.
2. Keep Your RV Looking New
One of the great added benefits of vinyl wrapping is that it acts like a protective barrier around your motorhome. Driving across the country can expose your RV to bits of flying debris, inclement weather, and other hazards that can damage the paint job. A vinyl wrap, or even basic paint protection film, acts like a barrier against these hazards and helps to keep your motorhome looking like new, even after thousands of miles and years on the road.
3. Preserve Your RV’s Value
Similar to the point about keeping your RV looking new, vinyl wraps and paint protection films may in some cases even pay for themselves by preserving your motorhome’s resale value. Exterior condition is an important factor used to determine an RV’s resale value; wrapping helps keep the exterior in tiptop shape so you can get top dollar.
4. Cheaper Than Painting Your RV
So, you want to change the way your RV looks—why not just paint it? A couple of reasons. First, vinyl wrapping is much cheaper than painting, especially on a large vehicle like a Class A motorhome. Depending on the size of your RV, you could be looking at thousands of dollars in savings if you go with wrapping over painting. Vinyl wrap is also easy to remove and adds an extra layer of protection that paint doesn’t.
FAQs About Motorhome Wrap
Q: How much does it cost to wrap an RV?
A: It depends—on the size of your motorhome, the type of wrap, how much area is being wrapped, etc. The best way to find out for sure is to get a quote from a vinyl wrap installer.
Q: Where do I go to get my RV wrapped?
A: Wrapping a motorhome is a big task, and not one you want to leave in the hands of unskilled or inexperienced installers. For best results and a quick job, take your motorhome to a shop that specializes in vehicle wrapping—cars, motorcycles, boats, and (obviously) RVs.
Q: How long do RV wraps last?
A: Well cared for vinyl wraps usually have a lifespan of five to seven years. Of course, this also depends on how much “wear and tear” the wrap is subjected to on the road. If you spend a lot of time driving your motorhome around the country, it could be slightly less.
