I give up....

After multiple attempts to have my trailer wrapped to match my DX3, we had to give up. At this point, Iím about to paint it and just not worry about the graphics.

Disgusted... itís close but not close enough.

Did you ask Dynamax for the paint codes ? If the wrap guys can't get it right that's not your problem.

Difficult to really tell what's going on from the pictures but from that angle and lighting there appears to be a noticeable difference in the "cream" color, on the DX3 it appears more orange and on the trailer it appears more silver.

I assume the DX3 has metallic paint, those are hard to match even on the same vehicle let alone different material (vinyl wrap).

Seems like disappointment that could have been avoided if they had you bring the DX3 out and check the wrap against it BEFORE applying??

Nice setup though, good luck

A few things...

While this is a "wrap", it's not vinyl that is pre colored. It is a white vinyl that is printed upon. The colors are close and even close enough to work (considering the way it's done) In order to make the metallic and bring the correct colors out, the entire wrap is then covered in a tinted metallic clear.

Variations in the color come from printing each sheet. I'll bet my guy has spent $3-4K on wasted materials.

I've even spent the last few days trying to find a match in colored vinyl and still can not.

I had even considered painting the trailer since matching wouldn't be a problem since we use PPG and I have the codes.

The problem is I can't fit my 12' tall trailer into my 10' shop doors...LOL.

And yes, the vinyl had been matched to the RV at least a dozen times. The different results are variances in the sun, angles and different sheets printed. Trust me, I've got 4900 miles on my DX3, I think 4800 are driving to and from the vinyl place (and they're only 2 miles from me....LOL)


I'll figure something out.

Hi Mark what trailer did you end up buying and is it a stacker? I've been all over the fence trying to decide on what to get....

I saw this Post on Facebook in response to a customers question about where to get a stacker trailer wrapped, you might contact these folks?

Dynamax Motorhomes The only place we have ever dealt with is Sharpline here I the ELKHART area.

I feel for you. while it is close, we talk all the time here...You are better off contrasting certain materials. Because sometimes when you have two materials and they are close, it looks like you tried to match and missed.

I'd say paint is the way to go...but that is a custom paint with a fade. And you're not replicating our mask...you are continuing it. So we wouldn't have a mask that would work. Our guys would have to chop one up and hand tape a bunch of stuff. Not an easy task, nor an inexpensive one.
