I like the name, but just my opinion, the graphic is a bit large. I'd probably use lettering instead of a sticker with a white background. Since 'Tumbleweed' is reminiscent of the Old West, perhaps an Old Western font like this? It's available on dafont.com, along with thousands of other fonts. Any sticker shop can reproduce it.

I might have been inclined to have it in a circle ( being a tumbleweed ) have it on the back to confuse the tailgaters ! ( maybe on the tire cover )

I think it's great.
Remember this, too:
Every time you see it in your rear-view mirror you're going to smile.

(If We see it on the highway, We'll be smiling at you as well.)

If you like it, then I like it. It's your trailer and I like you've personalized it.

Looks like you haven't taken the transfer sheet off yet?

I rotated your picture, unless you really wanted us to see it... tumbled

Didn't Elton John refer to a "fiberglass tumbleweed" in one of his songs? Or maybe it was Elvis Costello?

It's a great name, but since I live on the Hurricane Coast I wouldn't use it, for fear of tempting fate.

In that case it might be "Blowing in the wind"

Probably Elton John, probably from his country (!?) album Tumbleweed Connection, which I used to have a looooonngg time ago but no more.

Yep, it's definitely way too big, have ordered new, smaller, ones. Yes, front & back.

Yep, hard font to read, but this works for us. I did like a simpler font, like the western themed example, but in the end we agreed on the busier graphics because we liked the whimsy.

But the fanciness of the font DID mean no individual vinyl letters but screen-printed on a solid vinyl sheet. Unless we find another sign-maker . . . ?

I like the round tire cover idea -- can I steal it?

I'm havin' fun with this. Happy trails.
