    Could anyone give me a rough idea of price to wrap a small teardrop camper approx 4’6″X 6′ black gloss sides gold glos roof thanks

  2. Dr Ellis says:

    I have had the front of my caravan wrapped with clear paint protection film to prevent stone chips as my X5 M-sport could not be supplied with mud flaps and my Hymer Nova only has one awning channel, the latter ruled out fitting a front cover.

  3. michael pocknell says:

    I wouldn’t wrap my caravan, however, I do have a vinyl picture above the name, i.e Pegasus. The horse that is.

  4. Paul Horton says:

    I had my Pilote motorhome wrapped silver with custom graphics from new. The cab was already silver, but the rear body was white which I didn’t like. I think the whole design looks great and was exactly what I wanted, it certainly draws attention and comments everywhere it goes. The total cost was fairly reasonable at £3k, certainly when considered against the price of the new motorhome. I can share pictures of the before and after – how can I post them up?

  5. Max says:

    Yes definitely, make the whole thing silver, or an F1 design. Make heads turn. My old motorhome would be rejuvenated.

  6. Pat Bradley says:

    I passed a van recently that said something like…..I may be slower but I’m in front of you and the wine is chilling in the fridge…..wonderful!,

  7. lizziecollinson says:

    I think it would be great if you van was ever stolen. A unique design would make tracking it a bit easier…’Anyone seen a caravan with Zebras on?’ would make it noticeable. But personally, I would only like something delicate, like a few flowers or something, but as we have an old Avondale Avocet I always find it easy in a crowd as it’s a cream caravan, not a white one. Ah maybe the wrap should have an Avocet on it?

    My comment of 27th March is still awaiting moderation??

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      I’ve emailed you directly Alice, as I didn’t understand your initial comment.

  9. Mary Louise Fletcher says:

    I would certainly consider putting graphics onto my motorhome as like people say above, it brightens up life! The only problem can be devaluing your vehicle? Graphics or vinyl stickers if left on for a few years can leave visible evidence when removed, so I think it should be thought about carefully before taking the plunge. Full wrap sounds good and could even make you vehicle blend into its surroundings, but if it is scuffed it can spoil the whole effect..:( – it is also VERY expensive…. We have a duck which sits waving it’s wings on the dashboard – it never fails to bring a smile to passers by!

  10. Martin says:

    I doubt if I’d wrap my whole vehicle, though I am considering putting something unique on the outside to make my motor home more singular. This would include an Egyptian type writing around the middle or perhaps even different designs on each side. Most units look too similar and it’s very likely each one will not be easy to discover in a group of such vehicles, making the need to find any particular one rather difficult to undertake. How about making a flag instead? Always rather fun and probably cheeper.

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      A flag would be cheaper and are a great way of identifying your ‘van when pitched up. The Egyptian writing sounds good though.

  11. Cyril Bailey says:

    If I was designing my own it would be Pagan Wiccan Witch if I was advertising then id be asking if it was free and do I get paid for advertising

  12. We are considering it, why not bring a smile to people, the brighter the better, a danger on the road get real !!!!

  13. Andy Culley says:

    An interesting (if very expensive) idea, it probably falls into the same category as cherished/personal number plates. Some love ’em, some hate ’em !

  14. John Rapson says:

    I would love the dark Side of the Moon prism on both sides of my Motorhome.

  15. Heather says:

    Wow have been thinking of a way to cheer ” Sanna ll ” ( Dutch for Sun ) up would like small flowers …or exotic birds bird of paradise flying over the front or door. Why are they block white any way?

  16. Bailey says:

    If I was advertising would I be getting payment weekly.

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      Thanks for the offer. It was just a design idea and not something we are planning on doing.

  17. Phil Wright says:

    Would brighten up a boring white caravan and might make a caravan thief think twice about stealing it.

  18. Kevin Hale says:

    We wrapped the front end cos it was cheaper than a front end respray, Pilote, lots of different whites anyway!

  19. Maurice Wilson-Brown says:

    I’ve had custom writing on both my previous caravans which have drawn a lot of admirers both at home and the continent, both my wife and I believe it better than looking a big white space on the rear and ads a little humour to those following.
    we had living the dream, happy spending the kids inheritance

  20. Bryan - Lobo says:

    Hi Dave, one man’s meat as the saying goes. I think it is really good and shows the imagination of the owner, a little crazy or just dull.

  21. Hazel says:

    I would love to wrap my caravan… so funky…. and how ridiculous to think that they would cause accidents…. we all pass billboards, odd looking cars and scenic views whilst driving… whats the difference?

  22. Karen says:

    I really thought about wrapping my little Freedom caravan because I’m not keen and don’t understand why they’re all white! The only drawback is the wrap is only guaranteed for about 6 years.

  23. Gerald says:

    Some of the ‘full wraps’ would look great on-site, but would be disorientating for others on the road, increasing the risk of accident.

  24. Malcolm Haynes says:

    Interesting idea especially with the same news letter contained a piece on the use of mobile devices when driving. Distractions should be kept to a minimum whilst driving so no I wouldn’t vinyl wrap my caravan.

  25. malcolm white says:

    what is the average cost of a partial wrap on an 8 metre motor home

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      Hi Malcolm, we’ve tried to get some costings for you but it’s very difficult to give you an estimate as there are so many variables to consider, including the type of vinyl used to wrap your motorhome, and how much wrapping you are considering. Costs can vary so much. We’d suggest you speak to a professional vehicle wrap specialist, who uses materials such as 3M, Avery or Hexis. We found Richard at Staffordshire Signs and Graphics very helpful.

  26. Roger Scott says:

    Already got mine done, on the bonnet ‘Scott Free’ looks awesome but people want to know where I hired it from!

  27. Michael Griffiths says:

    Website clunky and will not allow my vote

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      Sorry about that Michael. We’ll take a look to make sure everything is working.

  28. Anne says:

    It’s not the people who wrap their vans who have to look at them!

  29. darren says:

    a good idea i have been thinking about such a thing, i think it would brighten up a camp site and shrug off some of the old fuddy duddy image of caravaning.

  30. phil says:

    I think we ahould wrap this up

  31. Steve says:

    vinyal wrapping looks awesome

  32. Dave Hunt says:

    I think some of those example are hideous! – also it would be an unnecessary expense and raise ones insurance costs…

  33. Daphne May says:

    Have you ever seen one of those fancy wheely bin wraps after a few years in the sun with all the red colours faded out. Yes? Then you’ll know why i wont inflict one on my ‘Freedom’

    • Liz @ Caravan Guard says:

      Hi Daphne, vinyl wrapping a vehicle uses a very different high quality material to the cheap and cheerful graphics used to brighten up a wheelie bin. A clear laminate also goes on top of the vinyl. offering protection from UV light and slowing down the sunlight fading process. Plus a motorhome or caravan is less likely to be stood in the same spot in the direct sunlight.
