Escape graphics on tow vehicle

I got some small dent on side of the pickup bed so I asked if I could buy an extra set of graphics to cover them up. I think this may have been the first time they had sold a set of graphics separately.

Nope. Alf had graphics on his Nissan Frontier. And Escape will sell you a set of graphics if they fade and you want to replace them.

That is awesome, it looks great! Even the red on the cargo carrier matches. Now...all you need to do is get a set of rims for the trailer that match the truck

sadly my white truck is a lot whiter than the escape... the 2014-ish classics were a distinctly 'warm' white, while my truck is Ford Oxford White circa 2002.

With the white truck this works.

While controversial and certainly not necessary, it would be possible to actually use matching Ridgeline wheels on the trailer. Even the Ridgeline's tire size would likely fit, although they are both wider and larger in overall diameter than the Escape's stock tires. Both the Ridgeline and the Escape use five-hole wheels, but adapters would be needed to match the bolt circle diameter (120 mm for the Ridgeline vs 114.3 mm for the trailer), to correct the offset, and to get the wheel centre bore to clear the hub.

Honda wheels on the trailer would be a bit extreme, but just to complement appearance there are these wheels for the trailer:
Aluminum Jaguar Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 5 on 4-1/2 - Gunmetal Gray

I figured you could probably buy graphics to replaced faded ones on your trailer. Would like to see a photo of Alf's Frontier.

Cathy Gale had the second 15' off the line. Reace put matching graphics on her Ram back in 2010.

I love the matching color and graphics!

Our Highlander is pearl white and from a distance looks close enough to the Escape glossy white. I donít think I am devoted enough to add graphics to the Highlander though, LOL

I saw someone on the Scamp FB page that had a dark green tow vehicle with white roof. They painted the Scamp to match exactly and it looked amazing.

Carl, she's like Brian on your patriot thread, somehow he seems to remember everyone on the forum (or did a lot of searching) who has that hitch.

Looks really nice, all you have to do now is install the Honda wheels on the trailer, replace the black roof box with a white one and replace the Honda badge on the truck with an "Escape" badge

Very well done. I like how you hiked the graphics up on the front fenders of the truck just like on the Escape.

The trick is remembering that there has been discussion on a topic, and so knowing that it's worth searching, and what keyword is likely to work for the search.

Hi: Phil Dauphinee... The graphics were applied by a pro installer in our garage. After watching him for a min. I knew I'd have messed it up... biggly. He did ask me how I wanted them to look. I said "Over the door handles and up on the front fenders". Turned out well!!! Here's a pic leaving the ETI rally in Osoyoos BC. Alf
