Does this suggest that if I intend to get & keep a new coach (2019 27B) outside that I should expect to go about 4 years before I need to get paint?

Your coach looks great. Did by chance they say about how long the full body paint will last in sun?

Great new look. Phantastic.
Our 34J looks exactly like your before the paint job but 15k is quite a number and Elkhart is not around the corner from us.



Does anyone know if there is somebody that good in the Philly area?


Keep on travelling...

How often did you wash and wax your coach prior to painting?

Big operation. Quality work!
Our Hurricane is a 2016 stored outside. I have already spent $2000 with polishing and buffing due to the effects of oxidation of the fiberglass coat. I have a 27 year old corvette ( also fiberglass) with NO oxidation. I think Thor just does a cheap manufacture process.

Just like a car! Wax once a year and it will outlast me probably. 3 coats of clear cost. For many many years to come.

And the answer to your r question is yes! I met a Hurricane owner last summer in SC and his 2 yr old rig looked worst than mine.

AMEN brother. Though- un their defense, no clear coat nor automotive paint. Big difference!
