Default Painting my Roadtrek 190

Just bought a 2000 Dodge Roadtrek 190 Popular the previous owner tried to do some spot painting where the paint was flaking off that didnít go well with over spray and running of the paint. I want to have the body of the van repainted my wife wants to paint it blue like the running boards rather then the stock white. Whatís your thoughts yay or nay.

Welcome to the forum Monstermash74!

Maybe take a picture and have someone you know who is talented with Photoshop show you a representation of the potential result.

That blue might be a little too much on the overall surface, but my opinion doesn't matter. Only hers/yours.

Speaking of van body issues, has anyone figured out a way to reattach the ground effects that break off? I have a 2006 190P and when I opened the passenger door, the bottom of the door (plastic ground effect) got hung up on the dirt and popped the top of the ground effect away from the actual door. I have no idea how to include a picture so hopefully someone who has had this issue can respond. I’m sorry be a little off topic, but I’ve tried numerous times to figure out how to post a new thread and I guess I can’t do it from my phone.

Thanks, Greg.

The darker the color, the faster the van will heat up in the sun. It will be more difficult to keep the inside cool. If you travel with a pet, this could become more concerning.

If you change the color and don't want to have a "cheap looking" paint job, it would require having all the door jambs, under the hood, etc painted. A decent paint job might cost $3-5K, including jambs (maybe $2-3K without the jambs painted). Is a 2000 model RT worth this "investment"?

Our Roatrek is a 1993 and paint is flaking of it too. Our plan is to have it painted the same color and white is cooler and have stripe or a pattern painted on. We have a newer LTV Freedom also on the Dodge chassis, but the old Roadtrek just fits us better so we plan to keep it. A good paint job is not cheap.

If the body has no rust and you like the van that much, a nice paint job should make it look like new. Might be worth it.
