3. The trend is to paint RV's grey or brown right now. What happens when that colour goes out of style? I guess no different than the green and orange decals on some of older white units but it's easier to change a sticker than a paint job.
Yes, I've seen some full paint coaches 6-8 years old that have some serious paint failure on them. Quite expensive to repair, I would guess. On the flip side, I've sen some white/ decal'ed coaches look pretty bad after 6-8 years.
As to the trends, I would say you are correct. All exteriors look dated after a while.
Not sure how full body paint is easier to maintain that white/ decal'ed coaches? Seems like they would both need to be washed and waxed regularly to keep the new look going.
