I kinda like the old graphics on our Casita. Think we'll keep them. Several weeks ago I removed some stickers the previous owner passed on to us. The "no guts, no glory" and the metallic Oregon sticker with the trout were the most difficult. They came off chip by chip. I used the warmth of the sun, Orange Power and a plastic ice scraper. Yes, there are ghosts!

Good topic!

When I ordered, I specified no stripes, no logos on spare cover. They said they could also delete the "Casita" logo, but I insisted they should leave their name on it. After reading y'all's posts about getting old stickers off, I think I'll remove them now, rather than later. I guess they've had a year and a half of advertising, now.

With the Casita, I like the way most people don't even understand they're looking at an RV...most people just think it's a utility trailer! (Even sillier, a car salesman asked me if it was a HORSE trailer AS IF a horse could fit in here!!!)

I get questioned several times a week by people who DO know what they're looking at.

As for the rest of 'em, I'd just as soon as they keep thinking it's a cargo trailer, so the decals gotta go. (There's just three of 'em)

By the way, the Scamp does have a better proportion, but I don't worry about dragging the bumper or stab jacks with the raised rear frame and body of the Casita 16'. One reason I like the Casita style though is the pronounced clerestory, because I'm a huge fan of rail travel and rail cars; so when I see my coach, I'm reminded my own first-class "compartment" is right there!

I love the plain red stripe on the Scamp 16, John Mc, and the updated BURRO logo and stripe look great, MKohlman!

About 2 weeks ago I caught up to a mid-eighties UHAUL 13 going through Wilkesboro, NC, towed by a new Subaru Legacy wagon, and all the logos had been removed except "CAMPER"! How's that for generic! Took me a moment to tell if it was a BURRO or a decommissioned UHAUL! Still had the UHAUL stripes, I decided.

I guess I'm just really glad not to have all the wacky graphics like I saw last week at a local RV dealer - an American Eagle ($635,000, 1 & 1/2 baths, CEILING FAN in bedroom, etc) whose swooshes actually continued over the windows, visible from the outside and not noticible from the inside. Looked to me like a big-haired southern-Appalachian interior design student had gone amok!

Count me in the less-is-more crowd!
