I know where that trailer is. It is owned by friends who are on these forums. It looks absolutely beautiful...but no more wrap.

Fascinating idea to wrap an airstream. I have not seen the rainbow trout one. Really cool idea about leaks.... Interested to hear more!!!

I'm also thinking about doing this since I'll be full timing as a Life Coach/Clinical Hypnotherapist/Holistic Nutritionist. I like this style below. The cost is over 2K I would imagine. The wrap we see on the roads are paid for by the company and they pay the car owner based on how many miles they drive. I did some research a few years ago for a car and it was very expensive.

I like the spray idea and then add graphics somehow. It might be a cheaper way to go.

Before painting my Argosy met with a guy who does professional wraps and his price was $6 to $8 a square ft, in Orlando, FL.

He had done several city food trucks with some pretty wild designs so I verified that it was for quality work.

Well, Since I'm polishing the rest of the Argy...I've decided to wrap the end caps in chrome. 3M makes the best, but they only come on 48" width which would require a seam. There is a company in Canada that sells on eBay that has widths up to 120", but don't know about the quality. My guy quoted me $10 sq. ft. So that's about $1,200 total...ouch! I think I'm gonna try it on my own with the Canadian material. I should get the whole job done for about $350 + several hours of labor.

Winter is much too long up north . . just knowing who/what "Justin Bieber" is was news to me. And, unneeded. Then again, if it were mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca, I'd have sat up . . but I suspect the world is her oyster over a trailer or a car.

Can't wait to see it.

What is life expectancy, and how does one prolong that?

P and S Trailer - Starkist Tuna Trailer

The guys here at P&S have done it or arranged for it to be done. They might have some answers about the effect on the finish under the wrap....?

I don't think most of these promo trailers are kept much longer than a year. That having been said, I don't think they will have the historical data we need to make an informed decision. I think it gonna take someone actually doing it, and reporting thru the thread over time...perhaps many years. My gut tells me that there will be no problems with the clearcoat or delamination from the Aluminum rejecting the material. This stuff typically has a mfg. warranty, so that should be the guage of presumed longevity.

Hi! I know this thread is a bit old but perhaps you'll see this anyway. Again, I know it's been awhile but you don't recall this person's information, by chance? I've been doing all kinds of research on wrapping a vintage trailer and I've seen many on airstreams, obviously but I'm just trying to see what my options are, gauge pricing, etc. So any information you may remember would be amazing! I'm definitely having trouble finding anyone in the Orlando area. Though I'm definitely not above traveling a bit for quality work, it would definitely be more convenient if I found someone worthwhile here in town )

thanks in advance!

Jessika

Jessika, do a Google SEARCH for "orlando florida wide format printers"; and you will see a list of companies that do vehicle wraps. Just make sure to use a printer that has previous experience with vehicle wraps; because it takes special ink and print media, even though they may have a printer that will print the right size.

Also, ask for referrals. Most previous customers will be glad to show their vehicle wraps to you; and then, you can decide for yourself whether that printer will produce satisfactory results.

We have the newest model Roland Versa Camm VS 540i wide format printer here a work. You could get some awesome stuff done up in a digital print. The biggest caution I have is, is even though the technology is improving and UV laminates on top of the print are standard the colour is only guaranteed for 5 years under normal exposure. Although...if you had interior storage for your wrapped trailer to protect it from the suns rays when you aren't out and about you would be fine for a very long time. Cost is approximately $15 per square foot
