** if i was to put a price tag on what i had into materials & then some for cost -- i would say $2000 is a good price ..Higher depending if the frame is to be smoothed or not, steel thickness , ect........... $2500 isnt that bad of a price ...... Now that i did my frame on my own & i know what it takes to do so ........ I wont do a frame for less then that .... If I had 2-3 buddys who knew how to weld & all that i would charge less...

This man is a GOOD guy, known CP for about 10 years...

He has juiced both of my Fleetwoods, one has a wrapped and powder coated frame... I will get the other Fleetwood done this winter... I would have to say 3K for a full frame wrap, that is a LOT of work...

Only trust the best...

in detroit we start at 2000.0 plus exchange then it depends on thickness and finish product to see what the price would end up. i would say they range from 2000.00 up to 8000.00 for a finished show product

Damn, doesnt that sound crazy when you think about it.... sitting on an $8000 frame? I mean.... its crazy to think that people take it that far now... not too long ago, that would be unheard of. Shit, you could buy a nice Impala for that much, maybe even a rag! :0

YEAH IT IS NOT ANY THING ANY MORE TO HAVE 3500 TO 8G'S JUST ON THE FRAME ETC.. DROP THAT MUCH CASH AND THEN SPEND ANOTHER 3500 TO 4G'S JUST ON THE INSTALL AND PUMPS SO YOU CAN USE THE FRAME :biggrin:

BUT IF YOU WANT IT DONE RIGHT YOU HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE

For that price i just smooth out the rough edges. Molding is really time consuming so its a little more expensive.
