I love having a paint shop.

Previous division, we shopped our paint out. So creativity and customization was really left in the hands of multiple outside shops and rarely went well. So we didn't change anything...too many things to go wrong.

At Dynamax we mix our own paint, we're able to try out different things in real time, talk to the painters directly, which is like having a little science lab.

I loved the subtle, classic paint of our Khaki Isata 3. Then we did a more traditional black/silver and I really liked that as well. A dealer, liked our Cosmic Blue DX3 and wanted it on an Isata 3 for his own use. So, of course we tried it out.

This is now my new favorite. I'll get better pictures when its done...but it looks beautiful in person. Just a little edgier than our other colors, non-traditional....which is really the heart of Dynamax.

Love the paint jobs you guys do on your own, that was one of the things we liked when looking at the Trilogy line. Now ordered a new River Stone and they farm out the paint job so now want to paint the truck to match, will have some research to do for that I guess.

If we weren't so busy, we'd offer our shop up We actually had a guy bring us his brand new DX3 and brand new white trailer. We carried the paint scheme from the DX3, into the trailer, colors, lines and all. It wasn't cheap...we had to hand tape things off and make a frankenstein paint mask for some areas, but it turned out great.

Thanks wish you could I know the rep we were working with said if we went with the Triology it might have been possible I believe his name was Jeremiah but he has since left. We tow with a full size Kenworth so it would have been AWESOME LOOKING!!!

This may be in my future if I end up going the enclosed trailer route! Glad to know you guys would entertain the idea

Full body paint was something that was completely lost on me while I was shopping. I likely wouldve opted out if given the option. Now that I've got the beauty of my Cosmic blue DX3 I couldn't imagine it any other way now. The closer I look at it, the more it really dawns on me how artistic it is!

So cool to see it done here. When I was sitting in the lot a few weeks ago I saw a white with some minimal black on it sitting outside that looked absolutely fantastic. You guys sure do it right when it comes to paint.

We love our Lexington. We love our Lexington. We love our Lexington. I'll just keep chanting this and ignore your beautiful Dynamax line. However that blue IS darn close to our new Mazda CX-5

Have you ever done a "Wrap" on a RV? If so how did it compare $$$ wise to Full Body Paint? Youroo!!
