Wall "art" for an A Frame (or other RVs)

Those of us who have them, know that wall decoration in an A Frame must be creative if desired....

Here is what I did as I did not want holes in the walls or adhesive tape to remove. This is vinyl lettering (I chose "slate" letter color)- it easily removed with a blow dryer if I change my mind after a few years. You can custom make a quote or word, select from many colors and lettering styles...a fun and doable project!

The two companies that my co workers and I have used are:

Wall Quotes, Words, Letters, Decals & Sayings | Vinyl Quotes For Walls (these came from them)
http://www.wallwords.com (my co-workers fave company)

If you decide to do it, please share your photo here...I still have one more to put up but everytime I look at the choices, I find another. haha

I'm impressed; how many campers do you suppose have quotes from Goethe on their walls?

LOL ... Maybe the same number as those who have it on their fence?

There are 4 fence panels by our kennel facility that have positive quotes "graffitti'd" on them....didnt want the area to look like an institution...not that my dogs know the diff...one year old Wally wants to get in that gate to do his business....

Fabulous idea! Can't wait to pick up my new A-frame, but too many snowbanks left here in Wisconsin and nowhere to park it!!! I did get the brake controller and tonneau cover installed on the truck today though. This is a wonderful forum. I have learned so much and come away with so many great ideas! Can't wait to meet many of you!

handbuilder - I have purchased the Flagstaff T12RB and can hardly wait to get it home! I'll be towing it with a 2012 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab pickup.

This forum is amazing. Anything I want to know about getting started or modifying my camper is here! I've already started a tabbed 3-ring binder with information that I will keep in the a-frame. I've also chosen some "wall art" that I will be ordering as soon as I get the camper home and can get some measurements of the walls.

I feel so blessed to have all of these folks encouraging and coaching me into having the best possible experience with my new little home on wheels. My son races motorcycles and I have been camping with him at the track in his enormous toyhauler, but most of my camping with the a-frame will be solo with my little Jack Russell dog.

Looking forward to sharing some pics as soon as I get my rig set up!
