We like the subdued nature of the decals (at least in the photos!). Our hope is it will be a nice compliment to the interior.

Also a hearty thanks to all on this forum who greatly educated us and influenced our build. Your collective counsel made us much more confident in our choices and we are looking forward to taking delivery and really enjoying ourselves on this next adventure.
The light print looks so nice and very different! There are so many variations with these trailers.

Yes. It's in a different (complimentary) fabric.

. Our house has very bold colors so we wanted to do something different. Michelle already has decorating ideas with accent pillows to add some color.

Dave delivered our trailer today and it's awesome! This past weekend I had three dump truck loads of gravel delivered to repair my driveway before the trailer showed up,and after I finished realized I needed one more load to finish. I called Saturday to arrange another load Monday morning, I came home with the trailer and parked it next door while I finished up the driveway. I cut it a little close but all is done and finished.

If all goes well this weekend looks promising, on the ride home this evening I had to remind myself that I was towing a trailer and keep my speed down. I didn't tell my wife we could have went a lot bigger! Lol

I have a 45 min drive home from work, my mileage didn't change! 15 miles per gallon towing or not. The truck actual seemed to ride better and smoother with the load, I have noticed the same thing when I haul a truck load of oak up to the camp.
