Certainly won’thave a problem finding your trailer at a rally! Besides, Airstreamers often go nuts over their trailers...

Nicely done and adds to the allure. Re-sale should not be a problem at all.

Lydia, the tattooed lady.

I love nose art and pin-ups and my dream was to 'tattoo" a vintage Airstream. We took Lydia and Groucho (Ford 150) out to Burning Man last year. All done by me with airbrush, and brush and stencil.

I haven't done any nose are on my own trailers yet but I did do my buddy's vintage kin (a 1953 I think) Boles Aero. I had to replicate the Boles Aero logo based on the faded to invisible original logo that had left a slight impression in the aluminium but it turned out pretty darn good.

Side note...if anyone else needs Boles Aero decals I can help

My personal favorite is SWebster's tribute to the flying tigers - done on his motorhome. 3rd link, page 2

I love it! Now you've got me thinking about what kind of design I could have made in vinyl to cover the place where the 'ghost numbers' are on my trailer.

I wonder - is there someplace I could get someone to recreate the actual nose art from my dad’s B-17? It was just a name, not a “Vargas” model
