Our trailer was ordered without any graphics. I sure hope they don't sneak any on the trailer; I'll double check that later on. We got a credit by not getting any graphics. Which was great as I spent about that much on graphics from this company:

Wall Decals | Custom Stickers | Vinyl Decals | Car Decals

Now to see how they look on The Trailer. I'm hoping we get our trailer earlier than the original due date as that way it might not be too cold to put them on. Fingers crossed!

Graphics whatever combination are a personal choice for sure. I just like that ETI will allow seemingly whatever combination of graphics or no graphics if one wants. Now if we can just get them to offer different color snap caps than the brown ones.

On my way to me, via USPS, is a multi-color order of those snap covers. I'm not sure if I wanted black, grey, blue or ??, so I ordered 7 different colors. I figure I can switch 'em around when I get bored with one color. Or put multiple colors on at the same time. (It's already been suggested that I need therapy if I do that! )

12/12 Snap-Caps - for #10, #12 & 1/4" screws | Pro-Dec

Or just take what I don't want to a rally and sell 'em to someone else that wants that color. Yeah, that brown is not what I wanted. I don't care if it's used to match the trim color around the top of the countertop (as I was told), it's still ugly (to me). Least the side edge is black to go with the countertop we're getting.

And I'm thrilled that I can make all these changes to our trailer so it'll be super personalized and won't look like a bazillion others that are out there. Yay!

it only takes a few minutes to remove them if you change your mind later.

Wait until you see how many snap caps there are. More than I want to count. You might need most of your order. A multi-colored look.

Yeah, I know you've done that, but I don't want to. Pressing the nozzle on a spray can absolutely kills my hand, so I avoid it at all costs. It was well worth it to me to purchase them in different colors as opposed to using a spray can and having my hand hurt for hours on end.

Waxed our nine year old trailer yesterday and noticed the terrible fading on passenger side. Likely it's because both at Alf's place and now at ours it's parked with the passenger side facing south. The decals behind the awning arms are fine. Also the front Escape 5.0 decal is well worn, but that's likely from having to clean off so many bugs over the years

You need one of these.

I've found them at most hardware stores. Just be sure to get on that has a trigger that uses more than one finger.

Thanks, but already tried it and it killed my hand as well. I'll pay 14 cents a piece for the screw covers, which is what it cost for all that I got with postage figured it. Well worth it to me.
