I've read the vinyl wrap material should last 3-5 years, with 10 years maximum. But that depends on the quality of the material, skill of installer & conditions the wrap is exposed to. When it comes to the durability of computer images printed on body wrap additional factors come into play. Some fade badly. Some are a PITA to remove.
My current van is a 2004 model & the paint is essentially still perfect. This vehicle has never been in my garage & is subject to FL heat & humidity. Would never expect any vinyl sticker to last 10 years. Still have my '92 van & at 24 years old the original paint is still excellent, except where rocker panels & drip edge rusted.
Would not entertain the idea of changing a white PM to my favorite color with body wrap. Have considered artistic body wrap on white van. From what I've learned about body wrap it may be better, more cost effective, just to paint a PM.
