Airstream Tagged While in "Secure" Storage Lot

While on the road today, was dismayed to see that an entire row of RVs had been tagged by a moron with a spray can of neon paint. The sole Airstream was hit particularly hard. The prankster was probably thinking, "Ahhh...looks expensive. The graffitti will really stand out here."

The RVs were parked in a storage facility with a their rear bumper against a chain-link fence. This facility advertises itself as being "secure." But as it turned out, the chain-link fence was the perfect set-up for a prankster with that can of spray paint.

A heads-up to those utilizing those storage lots. Unless the surrounding fence is solid, don't park your Airstream anywhere near it.

(So, how does one remove graffitti from the skin? Anyone know?)

IF the paint is fresh, soak microfiber cloth in hot water 130° F and put over the area. Let sit til cool and rub off with the grain. Pray.
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

heard that WD40 does a good job removing any spray paint...
