Decals for truck and trailer

I want to get custom decals made for my TT, and TV, yet the companies out there pretty much say the exact same things, and charge the same prices. What I want is a custom decal for both vehicles that shows what my venture is all about (Brewing beer while boondocking using water from each National Park Unit making a unique style depicting each unit) in a simple 4~8 color caricature style graphic that covers both sides of each vehicle to the fullest extent practical. I know this may sound weird, but ONE thing I discovered a long time ago in business is that location, and purpose, are what drive name recognition in this world. Any ideas, suggestions, referrals to companies that handle this kind of long term mobile signage? I'm thinking more towards vinyl, with a clear coat, and removal of the stupid trendy ones that the factory seems to think we all want. Safe, and hoppy travels from The Boondocking Brewer™!

Full color wraps are very common I have a tenant that has a 72" full color printer that can print or cut anything you want on a wrap... any good wrap company could fix you up.

Yes, quite true, as I've discovered! What I was looking for was more of a practical time line for longevity. I've seen some decals yellow, and peel after only a year out in the elements. Nobody offers any kind of guarantee, or warranty for length of life. So I'm just curious as to who makes the longest lasting product. If I'm going to spend $1500, I want it to last as long as practical given the environmental stresses and all.

JPD Graphics in Elk Grove Village, IL. does wraps of all kinds for all sizes of vehicles. They do a lot of fleet graphics for large trucks, phone companies, etc. 3M materials are top quality, and the imaging systems used today offer great longevity. Where you live makes a difference, as super sunny areas like Florida, Arizona, and Nevada are harder on the imaging. Search “Vehicle graphics” to find what you need in your area.

Hope this helps!

I have had good luck with International Graphics and Nameplate in Salmon Creek, near where I-5 and I-205 come back together. Lifetime is so subjective and variable, based on how it's stored, so many things.

Thanks everybody for your valuable input! I'll be living in my TT full time, so will be chasing that 70° weather. Also I plan to brew beers using the water from each, and every NPU, and let the water chemistry determine what style would work best. So I'll be in just about every environment from salt water beaches to high mountains, highg deserts, to the Great Plains, The Great Lakes, The Appalachians, and of course the Eastern seaboard. I also plan to make video documentaries on YouTube, and will be selling logo'ed merchandise, and have a patreon sub so that people can get bling for contributing, as well as from my store (glasses, tee-shirts, aprons, baseball caps, decals, etc.). So hoping all goes as planned, and that I can find a wrap, or decal that will last at least 5 years. Safe, and hoppy travels from The Boondocking Brewer™!

Wait, what?

Wait back up… “Brewing beer while boondocking using water from each National Park”. I’m a home brewer and am trying to figure a way to have at least a 2 tap system installed in our 250 RKS Titanium. How long do you stay at a park, how do you keep the right primary fermentation for a lager, etc…

I’m intrigued, tell me more.

If you want to make a 2 tap system, you need a refrigerator that runs on either 12 volts, or propane. It has to be the proper size for the kegs that you plan on using. I'll be using 4, 3 gallon Cornies, as I brew parti-gyle style using a half barrel brewing system to make 2, 6 gallon batches of beer that later becomes 4, 3 gallon beers that usually have OG's of 1.048, 1.060, 1.075, and of course the first runnings of 1.090. I do this by blending 1/3 of half of each runnings with 2/3 of the other half, yielding 4, 3 gallon beers of varying strength, and character (think Pale Ale, ESB, IPA, and Barleywine as an example). I brew once a month, as that allows for 2 weeks of brewing, and 2 weeks of drinking. Then I can move to another "dispersed" camping spot, and do it all over again. As for temperature control, here's the secret: Brewjacket Immersion Pro ;^) It will change your life FOREVER! Capable of maintaining a 35°F+ differential, you CAN brew lagers with this system. It does, however, require a fair amount of cleaning, and sanitizing (they tell you which cleaner and sanitizer to use too), so that you beer will be clean, and delicious! As to the refrigerator, I found a company that sells 12 volt compression fridges; its called wayinterglobal dot com, and their 4½ cu. ft. model is perfect as it will hold 4, 3 gallon Cornies, or 3, 3 gallon Cornies plus the CO2 tank and regulator. The reason I'm pushing the smaller Cornies is that FT RV'ers have to be both weight, AND volume conscious of what they add to either the tow weight, or to the payload capacity. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!
