Great artwork, and from the heart of Dixie L.A. (Lower Alabama) I would advise against the rebel flag as we lost that one.

What about a similarly abstract version of the Dutch flag? It would tie who you are to the trailer's American roots.

Gorgeous painting!

Specifics

Yes, I've seen those cargo trucks going down the road with the woft sides. But, the specifics? Where did you get it? It comes in clear? And red? Thanks. Very cool sides.

at least over here it is in about 20 colors
3 meters wide
I also have the awning made out of the same material
you need to go to a shop where they make the trailor sides
just ask a trucker
the material is stronger than the original awning material and a LOT
less expencive here its about 75 dollar cents a sq ft

cool

I like it. If that stuff is that tough I'd like to make some pants out of it. They would last forever and I'd get good ventilation as well.
