Default Trailer Wrap Pricing

I have been quoting some trailer wrap prices this week and they seem really high upwards of $2400.00 for a 17 ft comp trailer.

Can any of you give me an idea what trailer wraps in your areas go for.

Wow! I'll have to confirm, but a buddy of mine had his van wrapped for I believe $1,700.00 It's a mini-van, so the size difference between one and 17-foot trailer could be the reason for the up-charge. I'll check.

I forgot to mention it would be a self install; or go to your local window tinting shop and see if they could help you. You can also check out youtube for DIY vinyl wrap projects. It would definetely save some money in the long run.

Wrap prices vary depending on material. I've seen bad wraps because they were cheap. You get what you pay for. My 18' trailer (excludes deck) was quoted as roughly $5,000. That includes art.

You don't have to do a full wrap.

Wraps are expensive - to buy and to repair! Living at the end of a mile-long gravel road with many intruding tree limbs we decided to go with simpler cut vinyl for our trailer. We had our logo put on three sides for about $800, and if a section is damaged we only have to replace that small area, not entire wrap panels.

Certainly it's not as dramatic as a full color trailer wrap, but it works for us.

I am in the sign business and that price is very close to a price here.

A van runs from $1,500 to $2,000 based on the number of windows covered which costs more than standard Auto Vinyl. If you get a lower price, watch out for cheap vinyl and no laminate.

I do wraps. There is a wide variety of vinyls and materials out there with a wide variety of costs. Depending on how often your trailer / vehicle is on the road, you may decide that a less expensive / durable material is OK for you.

Materials are less of the expense of a wrap than the labor, a good wrap takes time to prep the vehicle and apply the vinyl correctly. Like Plowboy said, you get what you pay for.

As far as pricing, $2400 for a full wrap in a 17x8x6 trailer with riveted panels is pretty good. $2400 for a side wrap on a 17x6x5 cargo with smooth fiberglass sides is a little high. Every wrap is different.

If you want to know more or have other questions feel free to ask!

You don't have a vehicle wrap sponsor yet?
