Our trailer will be ready July 20th. We received the pictures this past Wednesday. Got the e-mail about going into production one and a half week before.

You might get some about June 28 but they sometimes have other things going and might get a little off schedule. Not long!! And when they start, they will be done so fast.

Has anyone used yellow, dark yellow or imitation gold graphics? If so, could you post some pictures?

Dark yellow is what we chose for the swirls. The bad part is that you have to wait for a picture. Ours just started production. Once we receive pictures from ETI I will gladly post those for you to see.

We chose imitation gold for our graphics, unfortunately the engine in our imitation gold truck has developed terminal engine problems so we may be looking for a new tow vehicle (we like the color anyway). We pick our trailer up next month.

IF it's only the motor in the truck and IF everything else checks out healthy and will last a long time yet to come and IF you really like the truck... you may find it cheaper to buy/install a crate motor.

Donna,
We may do that next year. The truck is a 2002 Dodge Dakota with only 46,000 miles. Oil was changed every 3,000 miles with synthetic Mobile One. I am sick over it. We just spent $2700 having the upper end of the engine gone through looking for the noise. Suspect piston problem. Yes the truck is in fantastic shape. Still has the original tires. Out of time and money to fix the truck this year. We are not going to let it ruin our vacation with our trailer this year. Going to rent a truck and go on an adventure.

We chose gold for our graphics and love how it turned out. We had replaced a vintage trailer painted the same color, and we thought it would look great with our white Jeep.
