Shout out to the paint guys

The last two days I spent hand waxing my Berk, that's a lot of time to look at a paint job. I always new it was a good paint job, but the time spent waxing it and looking at every little detail it's easy to see it. So I just wanted to give a shout out to the guys at FR for doing a great job of painting my coach. I only really saw two small imperfections. Here's a couple pics of her after I was done.

That all sounds delicious, but I retired my wax and all my cleaning supplies today. Next time I'll gladly pay someone to do mine.

I believe the painting is all farmed out to an outside vendor.... Possibly Elkhart Graphics or some similar company.

Boowho??

The FR plant said all the coaches are at paint for a solid week. They are painted offsite but I don't know where.

Just got done doing a hand wax on mine (although I had it done professionally earlier) and the only spot that I found lacking was that the top of the front cap was a little rough. Nice paint job otherwise...

I've been up close to several Newmars and I think our Berk's paint jobs are in the same league.

Just had a spot next to a Tiffin, and paint jobs were almost identical.
