Thinking of a naked Escape

The graphics on my Escape does not match the car and I am thinking of removing it.
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?

My graphics don't come close to matching my car, but I knew that when I bought them both. I kinda look at them as separate entities that come together only when in travel mode. Most people change up their tow more often than the trailer anyway.

Not sure what to think about one naked though, it might look kinda boring. Still, it would function great for you, and that is the main thing to worry about.

It is not difficult to put the graphics on. Just a bit of care is all that is needed. If you wanted the original style I imagine that Reace could just send a sign printer near you the graphics file so it could be done locally.

Unless you drive a white car, it still won't match without graphics.

An Escape with no graphics would instantly look vintage, as if it were at least 30 or more years old. The graphics give Escapes a big zing.

Graphics are one method to personalize your trailer. A sign shop can create just about anything you want. Be one-of-one instead of one of many! If I ever get an Escape, I'm putting Speedways on mine! Speedway Vinyl Graphic

Nice, Donna. But you would have to drive real fast to justify their being on there.

They look way too fast for that.

We removed our graphics. I did't care for the Escape font and I like the clean look.

Or, you could go Alf's route & get an additional set of graphics that match the trailer's & add them to your tow vehicle...

Eugene We,
Sure would like to see a picture your trailer without the graphics.

A little more snow and you wouldn't see it at all!

I like the naked look, but like the Escape graphics as well. I've seen many different colors of vinyl graphics that Escape puts on. They're all neato.

If you're looking to do your own, there are different ways to accomplish the same thing. Here's one: How to Install Vinyl Lettering or Graphics

Naked Escape???

Hi:Michele... I've heard of this type of camping... but never had the nerve to try it!!! That's why I've never used our outside shower.
As for the graphics we get more compliments from lookers about the "Matched set". When we bought our new truck it had to be white and even though it's not the same white as the 5.0 the graphics seem to pull it all together. The graphics came from Escape but I had them professionally applied. Auto Trim Design makes house calls as well. I think removing graphics would be best done by professionals also!!!
Some people expect me to have a tatoo too!!! Alf
