Has anyone painted their Camp Lite camper?  My CL16TBS decals are a mess and am thinking about taking it in to get them removed plus a custom paint job. Sounds like it could be approx $5k for one color and no stripes etc. 

Would also like to upgrade cabinet fronts since they are rippling.  Probably from humidity.

has anyone thought about the possibility of taking the aluminum skin and polishing it to a restored airstream shine.You can even take it one step closer and mabye do a rivet pattern where the seam is. Is that possible or crazy or both...

What color? The only painting I’ve done is a white roof. The exterior of mine is in good shape.

Addendum to Post

See pics attached, that show “bubbling” of the slideout storage compartment door.  Another reason for body repair / paint topic.

If that's a standard Challenger brand compartment door, there is wet wood in there forcing the bubbling. Just painting won't fix that.

Wow, that's a lot of bubbling.  You may need to replace the compartment doors.
