So how much is a decent paint job on a 28' rig (38' total) and does anyone know of a place in or near Atlanta to get said job done? I'm looking for a basic either single stage or base/clear single color.

Wow. If it's even close to $9 then no way - that would be 5k for just the trailer.... Wrapping it would be cheaper.

When I was talking to Lonnie at Showhauler about getting a unit I asked about paint jobs. He said they run between 4,000 and up depending on what you want done.

Well, on RVs - about the same size as your rig - a full body paint upgrade (if its an option on a cheaper one) runs around 10K.

....seen the graphics that are the size of a billboard?....like on a city bus.....maybe $2k and a stipend?.....the new finishes are very anti-VOC in nature and require heat to cataylize....VOC are now a disposal issue you just can't blow them out in the air anymore....got to ues pads to trap and dispose......I'd ask one of the local used truck dealerships if they have an "good old boy that can help you out"...I got one here in Cincy that does a tractor for $1200 inside and out frame and everything is coated with an automotive finish not a truck finish as it is cheaper for me to have it painted every 3 years than have an overall to O.E truck specs......geofkaye

OK just me the new guys asking possibly lame questions again. With 10k for a paint job, why aren't more HDT conversions clad in nice shiny aluminum like an Airstream trailer or something else that doesn't need paint?
