You'd then have a coach that looks like it did before they applied the optional vinyl. However, I'm guessing that the original investment is at least a couple grand and that would be lost if you couldn't purchase replacement panels and decided to remove all of it.

    I kind of list this as "nice to have" but really, who cares? I'd personally rather spend my bucks on upgraded brakes or suspension.

    You are correct, it's a $2,300 option, according to an Augusta RV - Luxe build sheet. They call them window silks....

    The material itself is not that expensive, but installation has got to be a bear.

    I have also read where it's hard to keep the perf holes clean/clear.

    If someone is interested in experimenting, PM me.

    I have been in a couple of those LUX wrapped fivers at shows here in indiana. They were very dark inside due to the windows being wrapped like that. Kinda looks neat from the outside, but honestly it was too much. You could hardly see anything inside on a sunny day. Plus I am sure it was expensive.

    Re: SOB Paint

    Wonder what the diff is then?..we have ours professionally printed specifically for the perf vinyl...we get constant comments about how nearly un noticeable they are from the back...ill snap some pics of our entry door....hardly blocks the incoming light at all..

    I was actually hoping on the bus that the vinyl would function as tint and give us shade....it did pretty much nothing and I had to have the windows limo tinted anyway....

    There are different manufacturers and varieties of this stuff. Light transmission depends on the percentage of perfed area vs solid area, the way it was printed (screened or inkjet), the opacity of the inks used, etc., etc. Talk to vendors who do this stuff and they can walk you through it. My main coincerns would be durability and UV resistance.

    SOB Paint

    I knew I had seen it before. My son in law has it on his truck. They put a clear laminate over it to help protect it but he took that off because it was more difficult to see thru. He has a sign business and itís on the rear side windows of his truck.
