I have had good luck in removing stickers from shipping boxes that I wanted to reuse with a blow dryer. It loosens the glue and then you can peel the address stickers off easily. May not work on other surfaces, and you would not want to use the hot setting too close.

Using a hair dryer works, but around here it ain't necessary once the ambient temperature reaches 100 degrees!
Either way, we'll get 'em off of there.

I removed all stickers just within the last couple months, the trailer was new as of 11/15/14....all peeled off without any issues except for that "green" sticker at right base of entrance....I actually forgot to get back to removing it...all others were easy...

For ones that are much older though....it appears from that long long honeymoon youtube vid that it is fairly difficult....they used some "goo gone" then rubed with some plasticy smooth scraper thing

m.hony....the griots works fine for me so far....Ill be giving the airstream a warshin' this weekend at some point....Im in love with griot's products so far....Ive used now like 3 or 4 different microfiber cloths....theirs are unreal nice....

I think there are some other options as far as sealers....ive only used griots sealer so far...some used the 1 step sealent...but being we dont have paint, im struggling to understand why this would be a good idea....

Good luck...

We have T-2 months until we are back at topsail...but probably in april we will get to some weekend camping local (busy couple months though with some travel related to family visitation)

I just thought it was cool that I could get Griot's at Advance Auto Parts- $17.99
And I might try some Saturday morning while I am at the campground by myself waiting for my wife to get off work-
The Toyota is clean and ready for the weekend- even replaced a blown fog light that I bought at Advance. That blown fog light caused me to discover that Advance has Griot's...
I have used Meguiar's Instant Detailer and had RainX applied at the Blue Beacon Truck Wash- both give good results.
Rub-a-dub scrub...

I just removed my Thor sticker. It came right off with no residue.
The "certified green" sticker on the other hand is almost impossible to get off. I will wait till warmer weather and use Ronsonol or Goo Gone.
The silver and black "RVIA" sticker doesn't offend me, but the red, white, and blue "trailer house manufacturer association" one does.
I think I may leave the stickers on the road side with tire information and VIN.
I want to get rid of the sticker on the front about turning off propane appliances when filling propane tanks.

Oh, great! After reading this I now have even more to do to the trailer if the snow ever melts enough to get it home.

you folks up north just got nailed I hear with more snow....mother nature is tempermental this year...

m.hony, that green sticker is a PITA...mine is still on but like you I will soon take on that task and remove...glad all your stickers came off easy...the "long long honeymoon" folks have a youtube video showing removal of their THOR sticker - probably had been on 5+ years....it did not come off easy and left some discoloration or something....glad we got ours off early!

Bout time to go camping...schedules have been crazy though...may go weekend camping local last weekend of this month, but looks more and more like april until we get out camping...

Yeah, they sale griots stuff at advance near me as well...ive popped down there and bought a few things since figuring that out....those microfiber towels they make are freakin awesome and $$ - like 14 bucks for 3 towels....but after I used them then other brands now, its like the forbiden fruit

The Green sticker was peeling at the edges- there is still a bunch of residue-
The Thor sticker came right off with no trouble.
I haven't attempted the others- waiting for warmer weather-
What you mean 'bout time to go camping? We done been- and going every week/weekend from now till November!
Maybe Saturday I'll git it on wit da Griot's. We will see.
Life is good!
In that "long long honeymoon" removal of the Thor sticker he never got all the goo off and then put another sticker in its place- There is absolutely no trace whatsoever of that Thor sticker on my trailer-
