Just put a deposit on an Escape 19 yesterday. Since we are working professional escape artists we love the graphics.

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?
Resurrecting a fairly old thread here. I had been considering the merits of removing the graphics on my 19', as having more of a cleaner look had once been appealing to me. However, I have changed my mind on the "bare naked" look and have decided to keep my red graphics. Others may think differently, but to me an Escape without graphics is starting to look kind of industrial and possibly a little bit boring.

I too prefer the look with graphics, with the naked look seeming too boring to me.

That said, I still have to figure out a graphics colour. Trying to think beyond our current tow vehicle, so may keep it neutral.

I'm a fan of color, but it's nice that ETI and some of the other manufacturers will accommodate and leave them off if desired. In hindsight, I probably would have left the one off the rock shield, but not a priority to remove it at this point.

Or a contrast colour to the TV. A colour you never see yourself drive.

Why is this, Greg? I have heard it mentioned before, but all it is, is the model name. Maybe smaller might be better?

Other than the front of the trailer , I like the stock graphics installed by Escape in the color choice one chooses. For the front "Escape 21" and "Escape 19" seems like an announcement, that is why those who chose a name for their trailer should place it there, like Prairie Schooner or Escape BlackJack

My Casita did not have graphics and liked the clean look. I plan on not having graphics on my 5.0TA as well. Found this picture awhile back by previous owner of a 5.0TA without graphics. Seeing this picture confirmed my choice. Never have to worry about graphics fading, peeling or having to replace.

Here a picture of our 19 parked between many buddies at ETI.
We left the model number out, going only with Escape on the front.
(just to show the difference)

I like the font size on the 5.0 in your photo. Maybe with the other models smaller lettering, to one side and up higher might be nicer.

I also decided to delete the 19 on the front for our build. I like the look of it better, and the 19 is on the back anyway.

Kinda looks more to me like the car dealer decals that I usually remove on my cars. It's a bit overwhelming and I don't need a large reminder of what model I purchased in my rear view mirror.
Smaller or removed would probably be much better. I may end up removing it, but I'll have to do it soon or I'll have it outlined in white.
My next thing is to replace the spare tire cover with something more subdued as well.

On the other hand, if you catch a glimpse of a f.g. trailer while underway, it's much easier to establish if it's an Escape. They probably could have made the size slightly smaller though.

Funny Greg! That big Maple Leaf is my favorite feature of the Escape graphics; along with the "Proudly Made In British Columbia" lettering. A great source of conversation for lookie-loos .....

I agree, it is a great attention getter, in a good way.

Happy for those that want to keep the factory one.
We'd simply prefer something that has more of a relationship to our situation something like:

Removed our graphics with no regrets other than not knowing I could have saved $150 by deleting from build sheet. A classic case of beauty being in the eye of the beholder. Our tire cover got ripped with a previous bike rack riding too close so will be replacing that at some point. Admire Myron''s colorful cover that looks like New Mexico. Greg, that sun looks great ; like AZ too
