Smile "Hey,it's an Airstream!"

Found a professional graphic solution to the proverbial campground inquiry, "When did Mercedes start building van conversions?" Even get a wave back from other Airstream owners on the highway now and then.

yes, it's an aluminum gray color. Spent some time with the designer and samples to nail just the right color. We decided the flat, aluminum gray color looked much cleaner than a brighter, flashier aluminum. Much more subtle and works with varying light levels.

Special order vinyl. Individual letters and graphic, no background, carefully centered, l to r and top to bottom. Difficult because of the curvatures in the body. Install photos.

Not my style but glad you like it. I prefer no graphics and even considered pulling some badging off.

Definitely makes you stand out though.

No more "fake black" comments, either!

I love it and can't wait to see it. Maybe you should blend that color paint up from the bottom and fade to the black... THAT would be cool!

Had to peel the Thor badge off. Painless. Fun graphics project. Solar upgrade is next. Liked it with no graphics, but like it better with.

Hi, I like it; Unlike the trailers, it's hard to tell if these are Airstreams or SOB's. This way I can wave before we pass instead of after.
