Anyone need new decals for a 2005-era Rockwood?

I created new decal templates for my 2005 Rockwood last year, and I thought I'd offer the graphic file of the lettering and front swoosh (modified Folkard font) to whoever else might need them. I can also direct you to the decal vendor I used. Let me know, Thanks. Attached you'll see the original front decal shrunken and cracked after 15 years, and the new decal a year after application. I also created the side and back decals. Cheers.

Here's the basic graphic

I also created a font that a decal vendor can simply type out to scale.

Really Nice. I dont need them. But, what was the process of removing the originals?

I didn't want to risk scuffing or overheating the surface of the fiberglass with an abrasive disc "scrubber", so I used 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner.
Wear gloves (and a respirator if you're indoors). I applied the solvent sparingly, let it soak a bit, and used plastic putty knives. After 15 years, I only needed to replace the main logo decals. Although the large swoosh decals on the sides had shrunken slightly, a light wipe with the cleaner removed the traces of gunk on the receding edges, brought the color back, and made them look good as new.

Decals

Those look awesome. What program did you use to create them? I have a 2008 Signature Ultra Light. Im not sure if they are an exact match but depending on the program used, I might be able to modify yours?

Crazy how some new lipstick can make a trailer look good! Honestly, those look great

Looks like you've got it made... There are people already offering several Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite decals on eBay.

Here's a link to a copy of my invoice for the 2005 Rockwood decals I ordered from Banners.com. I got several bids and they were the best. They can reference the order number and replicate the order for you from the files I've already provided to them (2020 pricing not guaranteed). Good luck, Terry

...and a few minutes of taping off around all the yellowed aging trim pieces can bring your trailer back to looking new. Get some white spray paint made for plastic... 30 minutes later, 15 years of weathering is gone.
