Airstream... Name Options needed soon?

My 2014 25 foot International is developing an 'Identity Crisis'... sooner, than later.

The A.I.R.S.T.R.E.A.M. on the front and rear of your Pride and Joy. Well... I had always thought it was embossed into the Aluminum. Guess what? These are stuck on. They are raised adhesive letters.

Maybe not even the best 'adhesive' as well.

Talk about being CHEAP. My 'T' is beginning to peel off the rear. I stood on a ladder and noticed some other letters are getting 'wavy' and trying to decide what to do. I have not checked the front... but between the the Front and the Rear... there are enough spare letters for ONE 'AIRSTREAM' and after that... I have to use my vivid colorful imagination.

AIRSCREAM? If I lose the T and pick up a C at Lowe's or Home Depot.

If more letters peel off... O.L.I.V.E.R. would really get some attention. I will buy spare letters for the front, when they begin to fall off, using possible suggestions from Forum Members.

Check YOURS. You could be towing an A. . TEAM in no time.

I thought I was seeing things... but yes, I was seeing things. The letters beginning to peel off the rear of my Oliver. Seeing is half of believing. Yours could be going into denial... I am not. Please, stay calm. Use a ladder, not climb up the side with suction cups.

What do you recommend? My 2006 Safari did not have this 'peeling issue'. It may have been embossed... but now I am sad. Not for myself or my International. But for... Airstream.

Bob... apparently from reading some Threads about a 'Pod', they may find Escape Pod a great alternative. You and I are geniuses!

Give AS a call I think I remember some letters like that in their gift shop/parts store when there last year. You might get lucky.
Otherwise since they're all stuck on and no holes to worry about I'd remove em all and have nothing or get some vinyl letters cut at a sign shop. You. Plus get creative with vinyl cut letters.

With a round Nasa logo on the front where the WBCCI logo would normally go

And a humorous moon graphic on the back where the WBCCI logo would usually go
