Colors and Graphics

What colors that you love, love, love did you guys choose for your trailer graphics? And if you had a trailer name added, where did you have it put?

I chose black graphics. There's a ton of black on the trailer and my white truck. Besides, it's like a little black dress... goes with everything


My trailer's name is my state of mind when I think about it, talk about it or walk inside. There's nothing on the outside that says "Ten Forward." That may change if I get a different spare tire cover... some day.

Royal blue here. Name went underneath rear window so those that are driving behind us have to stare at it and try and figure it out.

Thought about black. Is the design two tones or solid black? Thought about Royal Blue also. Is it a blue blue or more navy? Want a saturated color--not too light.

Trav, Just got samples from Avery and Royal Blue (at least to me) seems to have a purple tone to it. I like it alot and may get it, though also thinking of Yellow or Black. FWIW

Not that I'm picky, but when I ordered my 17 I had Avery (the maker of the graphics) send me a swatch of every red they had available so I could compare the color to my Barcelona Red RAV4. They sent 10 3"X6" swatches, and the one that was closest to the RAV4 was Escape's standard Spectra Red.

Dark Red graphics (just slightly darker than the stock red). 'Past Tents' because we are.

Battleship Grey to match the Wife's 4Runner and my old Tundra. I've been happy with grey, and silver vehicles.

That is what we ended up choosing for our 19 too.

Nothing Avery has will match the metallic Ruby Red of my F150, not even the metallics, so we are just going to go with what we like, and only moderately consider the truck colour.

Tangerine! Makes me smile every time I look at it. The name, 'en Plein Air' is on the custom licence plate holder.

trailer name graphics?

Hi guys - love some of the color options. We're leaning towards a silvery gray vs. black. So, having the photos in the thread helped to visualize how things would look.
I wonder if some colors fade more quickly than others regarding the graphics material?

In many house-hold products, blue is a hue that fades rapidly...in house paint, fabrics, rugs, etc., but I don't know there is a similar issue with automotive graphics.

Anyway, I've got a question...does ETI also put any chosen trailer name on with the graphics as well? Or is this something we do afterwards, and elsewhere?

Also, are there any "good" graphics companies who supply sturdy pre-cut lettering in a variety of colors that you could recommend? thanks!

Yes if you let ETI know they will have the name installed on the trailer with the graphics.

You get to pick the name. ETI even has access to a graphic designer if you want to customize beyond normal letters. They really do go out of their way to help customers.
Here's ours:
