Just put a deposit on an Escape 19 yesterday. Since we are working professional escape artists we love the graphics.

Did some of you have ever seen a Escape without graphics and did it look ok?

And if I was to order graphics to match my car is it difficult to put on?
Resurrecting a fairly old thread here. I had been considering the merits of removing the graphics on my 19', as having more of a cleaner look had once been appealing to me. However, I have changed my mind on the "bare naked" look and have decided to keep my red graphics. Others may think differently, but to me an Escape without graphics is starting to look kind of industrial and possibly a little bit boring.

I too prefer the look with graphics, with the naked look seeming too boring to me.

That said, I still have to figure out a graphics colour. Trying to think beyond our current tow vehicle, so may keep it neutral.

I'm a fan of color, but it's nice that ETI and some of the other manufacturers will accommodate and leave them off if desired. In hindsight, I probably would have left the one off the rock shield, but not a priority to remove it at this point.

Or a contrast colour to the TV. A colour you never see yourself drive.

Why is this, Greg? I have heard it mentioned before, but all it is, is the model name. Maybe smaller might be better?

Other than the front of the trailer , I like the stock graphics installed by Escape in the color choice one chooses. For the front "Escape 21" and "Escape 19" seems like an announcement, that is why those who chose a name for their trailer should place it there, like Prairie Schooner or Escape BlackJack

My Casita did not have graphics and liked the clean look. I plan on not having graphics on my 5.0TA as well. Found this picture awhile back by previous owner of a 5.0TA without graphics. Seeing this picture confirmed my choice. Never have to worry about graphics fading, peeling or having to replace.
