I did all the interior stickers. The stove was a bitch... As for the outside ones, I will get to it once the warranty expires in Sep!

If you are on a boat and see a lawyer drowning, do you:
A: Carry on eating reading
B: Put the paper down and have lunch.

2nd. WD40 & GooBGone
The sticker behind the stove was the worst. All of those stickers were off within 90 days. Only the one with the trailer weight remains.

Oh yea - got rid of them right away. I had the factory installed stickers plus a few from the dealer. Got rid of all of them one at a time (slowly).

No irony at all, in my opinion. The difference is number stickers you want versus lawsuit-avoidance stickers someone else thinks you need.

Personally, I think the irony is that the stickers everyone is so keen to remove are installed for the sole purpose of keeping lawyers out of the mix. It wasn't lawyers who said the stickers were needed— it was company executives who have endured too many lawyers already and want to avoid dealing with more.

Lawyers would prefer no stickers and more lawsuits, because they make money off of lawsuits and not off of stickers.

If you must tell a lawyer joke, please try to make it original!

Try a heat gun to warm up the sticker and peel it off.
Then WD-40 or similar to remove glue residue.
I have NOT tried it on my new AS yet, but it has worked in other situations.
Just don't COOK the sticker.

Too true!

Or as I like to put it, "I'm not stubborn. My way is just better, that's all."

I would bet that Thor/Airstream has a large high dollar law firm on permanent retainer and speed dial. They are advising the corporation on each and every aspect of business including all those pesky labels.

Stickers

As someone who is in the business, I first want to clarify that they are not stickers, they are pressure sensitive decals applied with adhesive. You can thank our legal system, and Airstream not wanting to be sued by all the people out there in the world who seem to figure out all kinds of ways to hurt themselves
in ways we can't even imagine. Also, in our culture, branding has become the thing, even for Airstream. So people like me sell an unbelievable number of warning and instructional and decorative decals as a result. Sorry but there is no easy way to move them because they really don't want them removed. When you sell your AS to someone who then injures themselves and there is no warning label, guess what....lawsuit!

There will be a lawsuit anyway. Perhaps arguing the print was too small, or in the location, or in the wrong color. An attorney once to me the U.S. tort system is designed, when there is an injury, to find out who has the money and use it to compensate the injured. Fault has little to do with it. Depressing, isn't it?

Heat Gun

A heat gun or even a hair dryer will make getting the stickers off much easier. It softens the adhesive. Some clean up with WD40 or goo gone might still be needed.

Be careful - don't want to crack windows or delaminate anything. Heat guns can get pretty hot pretty quickly...
