Full Body Paint

Does anyone on here have full body paint and either regret the decision or feel that it wasn't worth the expense? Also, I noticed that a lot of them have dark base colors, does this affect the ability to keep the rig cool in summer? Thanks.

Personally, I will always have FBP. Looks great and holds up so much better. Not sure if you get your money back but to me, it's worth it. I've wondered about the dark base paint myself. I have a 5'er with a black nose (bedroom). Seems it heats up and needs AC more than my buddy's with a light nose.

To me it is worth it. Very easy to wash and clean.

I've had the peeling decals and fading fiberglass problems on my past M H's.
I'm sure the ones made today are better than those made in the past, but they will not last like a full body paint.

I have seen R V's with FBP that are many years old and still look like new.

Maybe you can't get all the cost back, but the ease in keeping it clean and shiny sure requires a lot less effort.
