Bigfoot Graphics Opinions

Just purchased a BF 25R21RB. Inside is perfect. Exterior is somewhat of a mess. Half of the graphics have been removed and the other half are in bad shape so I am removing them. Gelcoat is mostly Ok but there is some ghosting where the decals were.

So starting with a blank canvas, I am looking for opinions on new graphics. When I'm done I am planning to do the zep finish.

I know keeping it original is preferred but I hate swooshes. I would like to keep it very simple (even retro) with some stripes but am open to ideas. I would even consider painting it or at least the bottom portion.

I am currently thinking of just getting maybe two rolls of vinyl striping in two colors. Maybe a 2" stripe and a 1" stripe and just wrap the trailer right above the belly band. Any thoughts on design or colors would be appreciated!

Original is preferred? I haven't heard that. I would much rather be one-of-one, than one of many. It's your trailer, make it uniquely your own.

I am with you. I have searched the site to see what others have done and I ran across a number of posts where people feel original is better. That is not my plan.

I haven't been able to find many pics of Bigfoots with unique designs. Maybe everyone likes the swooshes? I plan to go more simple sort of like the older ones.

If anyone has any pics of unique Bigfoot (or others) exteriors, I would appreciate seeing them!

Any place that makes decals, signs etc should be able to make or duplicate whatever you need as far as new decals. Curious, was that the Bigfoot that was in Sarasota?

Yes it was. It was on eBay and Craigslist locally. I am happy with it so far. But the exterior definitely needs some work (which I knew going in).

Yeah say it on Ebay. Looks like you'll get the exterior in shape and have a very nice Boigfoot.

I prefer original. If you sell a trailer that looks messed with, it hurts your resale. JMO

you could....

you could remove all the stick-on graphics and just go plain white everywhere....there are one or two 17s that I have seen on this site that went that route and I like that look a lot....but that's just me....I would do it if it wasn't so much work....

one thing to keep in mind if you replace graphics....the rockguard gets the most sun and graphics there will be the first to fade/deteriorate

I agree all white looks good. The 21 is pretty big and it is a lot of white.

One side is completely stripped of decals and is now all white and although I like a lot of white I am thinking it is just a little too much. That is why I am thinking of at least a stripe or some simple to break up all of the white.

I will try to take a pic of it all white and post it for comments.

Plain 25R21RB

Shined up it would look pretty good.

Not necessarily the colors, but I was thinking something to this effect. But plain white is growing on me.



I am obviously not an artist and will not be using spraypaint

I always have liked the bottom accent on some of the Bigfoot trailers. I would do that and then try to replicate some of the original decals at a decal/sign vendor. Since you don't like the entire original look, just go for part of it. The part you like. Otherwise do something like you laid out. I have to agree with a previous comment that the more original, the better the resale value if and when you decide to sell it. For what it's worth. Nice trailer.

By the way....what year? If I remember right....2006?
