Badging

Has anyone ordered their trailer without badging and graphics ? want to apply my own. How easy would it be to remove these if this is not an option ?

I have confirmed with ETI that it is totally fine to order with no graphics.

Great. Thank You I have some ideas I would like to implement. Thinking about painting it silver and putting the name AEROSTAR on the front and back. Just kidding, a friend of mine does airbrush and I want him to do something vintage on it ☺

Sounds like a great idea. If you can post any drawings I'd like to see them, if not will wait until you post the finished product

I did not have any graphics front or back. I have seen how easily they degrade in these locations vs. the side.

You maybe (still) be able to get belly band on white or black, if that appeals.

My graphics are eight years old and show no wear.

We ordered our 21' with no graphics and white belly band.

Removed graphics on our 19' and replaced with a different color. Takes a couple of hours to remove using hot or warm water on cloth. Putting new ones is "fun."

When we used to apply large decals to cars we used a strip/s of masking tape to use as a straight edge. You can stick one end then stretch it to the far end of the trailer, easy to redo if you don't think it's strait enough. Kind of like a chaulk line.

That's kind of been replaced with a rotating laser. So much easier, especially when the surface isn't flat.

You get a $100 credit if you don't get the graphics. Of course, I spent about that much on custom graphics.
