General question:

Why do all of those cookie-cutter "lesser" RV's have all of those horrible graphics plastered all over them?

I have an inquiring mind, and I need to know!

Just a vanilla kind-of-a-guy,

wry

It's not only the lesser "white box" travel trailers that have all those wavy graphics. The big time fifth wheels and even high end mohos also sport a bunch of that crap. Apparently most people think that stuff looks good.

I like the ones with stickers of wolves and birds on 'em.

Well, until they peel off, like my neighbour's...

It's a cultural thing I know, but I can't get past anyone wanting the word "Prowler" emblazoned on their RV - it sounds positively criminal to me!

I think they are trying to make it look like more than it is. It don't work. They are just ugly. The only RVs I like other than Airstreams are similar- Avion, Silver Steak, Spartan, Travellux. The only motorhomes I like are vintage- Airstream, Bluebird Wanderlodge...

If you think the graphics look bad, just take a look at one of those plain jane FEMA trailers that have no graphics...........bad ugly.

Imagine browsing the cracker isle in the grocery store. Would you buy the ones in a plain, white box!!!???

To make it easy to see that our trailers are the STARS of the (campground) show!

The eye I the beholder - an airstream thread on rv.net had one participant who stated this regarding airstream (paraphrased):

"and they are soooo ugly!!"

They do it to try to give some style to the flat box sides. Without the graphics all the trailers would be just another square white box.

I think it's a style thing and great for business. Some years ago -- but after we bought the park here -- the going rage was straight lines. Then the wavies suddenly became the thing, making all of the previous rigs look dated and old.

They may not look cooler...

...but they are cooler inside, literally. My daughter and her DH just bought a Winnebago One. We are camping at the beach and I frequently go to her trailer in the middle of the day to get cool. The AC in my AS just can't cool my trailer. And it is so LOUD! Maybe that's why one doesn't see many Airstreams in the deep south during the summer.
