Trailer Names?

Is there a thread with the names owners have given their Escapes? I can't find one.

We've got one in mind. Where can we get a decal made (or some other way of applying it)?

There are many threads on the topic of trailer names. Here are a few:

What’s in a name

Your best bet, in my opinion, Is to post your choice for a name and ask if anyone has it for their trailer or has seen it on another trailer. Obviously it’s up to you but I wouldn’t worry about
duplication. If I see an establishment named Dew Drop In or a Thistle Dew Cafe I usually stop. Back years ago I used to take pictures of “The Mountain View Motel” when I was out west. Had about a half a dozen. Have a great day and go for it

I never got round to putting the name on the Casita itself, which is probably just as well, as the folks we sold it to last Spring would have had to take it off and put their own on.

However, I would like to get the name for our new-to-us Escape on the trailer. We've named it after a favorite gospel song, 'Farther Along'. Seems a natural follow-up to 'Close By', and appropriate for a travel trailer.

So how do I get a decal printed?

I'm not sure Lynn. Escape used to have their graphics supplier print them for folks. You could always call and ask if they still do. Or maybe they can just put you in touch with a decal maker and you can order direct?

With the heading I expect a lot of folks may look at the thread, either for inspiration or just to see some of the interesting names and reasons. Should be fun.

Hopefully a lot of owners will contribute.

We are going with 'QShip' when we get our new 21C because it will be much more than it appears. (From a form of WWII warship.)

Lots of vinyl sign makers around to do graphics.

Locally or mail order, and you can have your choice of fonts, sizes, colors, etc.

I did mine at VistaPrint.com - but it's a solid sheet with the name printed instead of individual letters. Easy and cheap, but the edges are noticeable.
