Stickers on a fiberglass camper?

Ok, I am not big on bumper stickers or stickers of anykind on my vehicles. In fact, I have never put a bumper sticker on any car I have ever owned. But now I have a Microlite 25DS with a huge, white fiberglass canvas on the back. I don't want to load it up, but I wouldn't mind a few stickers; especially the visited states sticker. So how hard is it to clean the stickers off a fiberglass side in the case I ever get rid of the camper? If they can be removed easily enough, I would like to put a few on.

Thoughts?

We put stickers on the back of ours all the time. If you want to remove, peel them off and use a product like Goo-Gone to remove the sticky residue.

Just use a hair dryer. The heat will loosen the glue and it ll peel right off

Problem with putting stickers on is if you leave them on very long and decide to remove them, there will be a difference in the color of the fiberglas even if all the glue is removed.

After 5 years, FR replaced a peeling side graphic at the rally.

There was a horrible looking color difference between where the old one was and the wall. I thought they would never be able to get the new one to fit exactly where the old one was and I would have that discoloration forever.

The Flagstaff Tech scrubbed with a rag soaked in a cleaner (never did ask what kind) and within 30 minutes or so the entire slide out was bright white and the new graphic went on like it came from the factory that way.

Now I wish I had asked what they used!

The FR techs forgot a bottle of Acetone at our trailer that they had used to clean where they peeled off the caulk before installing the new taillight. Don't know if they would have used the same on a whole slide, but that's what they used on the caulk.

(Note: No, I don't have the bottle, I turned it back into the service center.)

We removed all the graphics on our previous trailer. I used rubbing alcohol to remove the leftover residue and it worked great, it's cheap too.

Then we painted it with tremclad rustproof paint (white) and the thing looked brand new (year 2000)

Hope this helps.
