Does Paint Protection Film Enhance the RV Lifestyle?

It is a common misconception that the aftermarket products that we provide at Tint Tech like paint protection film for cars, as well as van paint protection film, are reserved only for the hot rods of the world.  People tend to think that only sports car drivers are the sole customers in the aftermarket car product industry.  

There is a whole world of non-traditional car enthusiasts that greatly benefit from the kinds of quality products that Tint Tech provides.  Those include people who own RVs – i.e., recreational vehicles.  

There is a whole world of people involved in the “RV lifestyle.”  And why not? The RV lifestyle is one of freedom to travel anywhere, see anything, and still be right at home.  Accordingly, if you don’t already know about the RV lifestyle, this blog will introduce you to the basics of RV living, and then tell you how car and van paint protection film from Tint Tech can help. 

What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace, Love, and RV-ing?

Over the last few years, the RV industry has shown tremendous growth.  In fact, the sales numbers these days are only matched by the RV boom back in the mid-1970s.  

Indeed, more than 9 million families own at least one RV for seasonal trips.  Yet, lots of RV owners are not in it for only summer vacations. Rather, RV ownership is becoming a lifestyle.  In fact, about 1 million families live in RVs full time.

So, that leads to the question:  What is so great about the RV lifestyle?  Apparently, there are four main reasons why RV-ing is the way to go.

1.Affordability

There are lot of ways to see the country, but each way has a different price point.  Driving around the country in an RV happens to be one of the cheapest ways to do it.  

When compared to paying for flights and hotels, which can reach into the hundreds of dollars per day, renting an RV can cost as little as $30 a day.  And owning an RV, can be seen as a cost-saving investment given all of the costs associated with travel these days.

Indeed, comparing the cost of flights and hotels with the costs of campground fees and gas costs, you will end up saving money with an RV trip.  

Moreover, lower costs are a top reason why people decide to live in their RVs full time.  Financing an RV along with insurance will, in almost all cases, cost a lot less than having a mortgage or making rental payments on an apartment.  And, as noted above, no matter where you are with your RV, you are home.

2.RV as Home Office

Back in the day, RV travel was reserved for those in their later years.  It was reserved for retirees who had time and money to RV, and a hankering for travel.  Today, however, thanks to technology, you can work from anywhere – including your RV. Thus, lots of younger people who still have to work full time – like freelance writers, photographers, and IT workers – can do so right from their RV.

3.A Relaxing Way to Relax

Did you ever have a vacation that was more stressful than work?  You were so busy planning the logistics of a week-long vacation, that you had precious little time to actually enjoy the vacation.  We’ve all been there. Well, RV travel takes all of that stress away. You can go at your own pace, to wherever your whim takes you.  Now, that’s a vacation.

4. It’s Good for Your Body and Soul

Some say that travel makes you wiser, gives you rich experiences, helps enhance creativity and relieve stress.  With RV travel, you can reap those benefits. Enjoy the present, go do something unexpected, gain some greater happiness.  

So, What Does Paint Protection Film Have to Do with All of This?

At Tint Tech we understand how to make sure valuable things hold their value, and continue to give you joy.  When it comes to RVs, people like to make sure that their home on wheels continues to look great.

The one common denominator to all RV owners is that they will likely be on the road – highways, in particular – a lot of the time.  That means that you need to protect your RV from the rocks and other debris that can hit your vehicle at high speeds. The best way to protect your RV from those highway hazards is paint protection film, specifically a clear bra around the front of your RV.  The clear bra is a type of paint protection film that covers the front fender and front section of the RV.  

Many RV owners swear by our clear bra products to keep the RV chip free where most impacts occur, and keep the RV looking great.

Automotive window tinting

It Ain’t Your Grandfather’s Tint: Automotive Window Tinting Today

Our primary business, our main focus, is on automotive window tinting.  When Tint Tech first set up shop, our bread and butter was automotive window tinting.  And over the years, our professionals have seen a lot of change in the automotive window tinting industry, the technology, and the types of customers.  In all honesty, the evolution has been amazing to see.

Ah, The Way It Was . . .  

With regard to the automotive window tinting industry, many of the tinting shops out there were small operations.  Oftentimes those businesses were just doing tinting as a side-project to supplement their primary auto mechanics operations.  

As for the technology, it is hard to know where to start.  The tinting films of old were mainly treated with dye, and the products at the time had difficulty keeping the dye to adhere to the film for long periods of time.  Of course, they still use dye on many window film products today. Yet, today’s products are much better engineered to ensure that the dye stays intact, and that the film lasts a long time.

In addition, there were not that many product choices back in the day.  And of the products that did exist, staying power was a constant challenge.  Bubbling, cracking, peeling, and fading – only after a relatively short period of time. The recurring issues that car owners had to confront.  

Finally, with regard to the types of customers, automotive window tinting specialists mainly dealt with car enthusiasts.  Those were the customers who knew a lot about cars in general, knew a lot about their own cars. Specifically, and had a precise idea of what they wanted their car to look like.

Not surprisingly, those customers were virtually laser focused on aesthetics – the look of the vehicle.  As such, automotive window tinting had everything to do with looks, and little or nothing to do with any other product features.  

Well, this article is here to tell you that time have really changed.

The Benefits of Today . . .   

While many of our automotive window tinting customers at Tint Tech still are only out for looks, the tinting world has changed dramatically. 

1. A changed industry 

With regard to the tinting industry, many businesses, like Tint Tech, and businesses larger and smaller than us, focus solely on automotive window tinting.  Yes, we certainly have an enormous case load of paint protection film projects, residential window film projects, and commercial window film projects.  Yet, we like to think that our main business is still automotive window tinting.  

And that is true of the industry as a whole.  More and more, we see less and less of the “hybrid” shops that handle repairs and tint.  The two are rather specialized these days.

2. A wealth of choices in tech

Now, when talking about technology, there is simply no comparison to the old days.  Today, there are a host of solid companies that provide many, many products that range in price, in quality, in engineering, and in style.  Now, there is truly a window film product for any taste and any automotive application.  

It almost goes without saying that the technology variations are staggering.  There are infrared, metallic, carbon, and clear tints. Moreover, they are made using nanotechnology, such as ceramic tints.  We can go on and on about the technology. But, it is almost not worth it because it keeps changing in wonderful and fascinating ways so quickly.  We’ll just leave other blogs on Tint Tech’s website to tell you about those.  

3. A new type of customer

As you would expect, with the new technologies available, and the relatively easy access to high-quality shops (like Tint Tech) that do automotive window tinting, more than just car enthusiasts are starting to catch wind about the benefits of tinting.  

Indeed, there are many benefits to auto window tint that have nothing to do with looks.  Here’s a short list of great tinting benefits:

1. Minimize car upholster and dashboard from fading
2. Block harmful UV rays to protect your health and your family’s health
3. Reject solar heat, and give your air conditioning system a break
4. Protection from shattered glass
5. Increased privacy and security

As we noted in our previous blog, there is a clear auto window tint product that is taking the industry by storm.  Quite the opposite of window tint for looks, clear auto tint does not change the appearance of car. But customers are having clear tint installed because of all of the other amazing benefits listed above.  

In sum, the window tint of old is just that – old.  Window film for your car (and home and business) has such practical, money saving, and health saving benefits, that you everyone is considering making the choice to install it.
