RV Cover Art

Postby kcotton222 » Mon Jan 24, 2011 6:20 pm

I am thinking of buying an RV cover and painting some art on it. Has anyone tried painting a polypropylene RV/car cover?

Look at the threads about covering vehicles out there.
In a nutshell, you will fuck up the paint on the vehicle. Don't do it.

Not much movement with the cover, so RV paint may be safe....just DON'T paint the tarp! Paint flakes off. Get a shit load of sharpies or a proper paint.

There are some things that will work, but they need to be specific.

Is the cover just to hide the name?, to look very distinctive?, or to keep it cool inside?

For the latter, I plan to wish for the nice weather we had last year that allowed me to be inside my never-had-air ancient motorhome even in the day time.

I cover my camper and truck with military surplus desert camo netting, but our camp theme considers such as "art". Personally, I appreciate clever manipulations of the RV logos as much as anything...but that does little for shade.

If this is your RV, consider adding supports up top to anchor the top of a conduit or PVC shade structure (makes set-up a snap, hides the RV and provides shade and covered chill space).
