You could look into a wrap probably cheaper.

X2 on the vinyl wrap. They can do just about any design on a vinyl wrap, for less cost. That's exactly what I did on my rig when I first brought it home, because I didn't like the Jayco exterior.

How long have you had it wrapped? And how has it been holding up?

It's been 1-1/2 years so far, and I keep checking around, looking for peeling, fading, bubbles, etc., but so far, it looks the same way as it came home. The vinyl guy claimed a 5 year warranty, for what it's worth.

I have a 2016 Pinnacle that was faded and started buffing it with Maguiar's Ultimate Compound and is 100% difference. Takes time and patience.

We have a 2018 Eagle (purchased in November 2017) where the top of the front cap has really faded. Have waxed the trailer regularly and polished out the damaged area four months ago. but the clouding has returned. The Florida sun is really bad and we are now storing under roof. Any idea on the cost of doing a wrap (cost per square foot)?

Similar story here on my 2018 Eagle HT. It is about $2k to paint and clearcoat the front cap. Jayco only paid $1500. Mine was done once under warranty, for the reduced price. But the paint failed within 8 months beneath the clear coat. They are about to re-paint it for free, basically warranted under the previous work.
