Hi, Minnie's Mate. You are the second person to make note of a difference. The picture on the left was when our trailer was brand new and at it's first camp sight in La Pine, Oregon. The picture on the right was after I had the blue stripes installed and later when I installed the amber lights in the lower tail light housings. Also a California license plate with an Airstream license frame. [Same trailer, different year]

Ha! They aslo thought by painting fire engines green or even yellow they would make them more visible. Like all the flashing lights aren't enough for drunks to aim at. Crash right HERE! (flash flash flash flash flashety flash).

Use 3Ms Black reflective tape.

I had already placed a few black dots (looks grey) from 3M on the back bumper of the Den that reflect white at night...and oh yeah, the whole license plate is reflective...

Our rig also already has two rear facing side reflectors built in to the lower molding, is that a fix A/S started to comply?

Oddly enough, when I got home this evening, guess what I got in the mail?

You guessed it, another recall letter with the same instructions and another set of stickers.

Guess the factory is trying to tell me something after my last post (which is missing due to the forum issue that happened today). That post a day or so ago was saying that I pulled most, if not all my stickers off the Safari, and would most likely not stick these on my trailer. Now I have 4 reflective stickers.

It would appear from the descriptions I already have the reflectors.
I am curious where you can get the black reflective 3M stickers. On a grey day the Trailer and truck dis-appear.

Actually there are a few posts missing here, notably by the originator of this thread, Silvertwinkie.

What gives?

Conspicuity tape

I have noticed that many Airstreams have poor rear lights and reflectors.
Last year I added DOT Conspicuity tape to my trailer, four pieces on the back bumper and three on each side.
The recalled trailers have very little reflector other than the license plate.

3M Black Reflective Tape

I had some extra material from a Motorcylce reflection kit that I got a few years ago. Google Black 3M reflective tape. you should get a few hits or just visit the Touring Motorcylce sites. It's been used for some time to add a clean rear and side reflectors for any bike or helmet. I used a round punch to appear as holes/rivets...
After seeing the photo with no lights on, I think I'll add a bit of red to the back-end.
Good Luck.
