Caravans, trailers, or campers are also called the “house on wheels”, and have become more and more popular in recent years. Besides, many RV users started to look for a personalized appearance for their motor homes.

A unique and eye-catching outlook of recreational vehicles is very important for attracting your potential customers, no matter you are an RV manufacturer, dealer, or leasing company. Good RV graphics design can help recreational vehicles supplier quickly build brand awareness.
Increase resale value
RVs, campers, and trailers can have a lot of their value judged simply on their first impression. While RV’s and trailers can last for over 15 years, high-quality decals and stickers can last over 10 years without really showing their age. Peeling or faded decals will only decrease value.
How to Select RV Graphic Decals?
Not all materials are created equal
A good graphic product is achieved through unique design, qualified raw material, high-performance ink, and advanced printing technique. And the most basic premise is to have the good raw material, that’s the vinyl film. Not all vinyl can be processed to the vehicle wraps or decals. ACME only uses the top selected brand 3M for vinyl materials in the production of fleet graphics. Below is a brief comparison between premium cast grade vinyl material and common grade calendared vinyl.

Confirm the expected lifespan
Since RVs, trailers, and campers spend most of their time outside, the sun really takes its toll on these vehicles. ACME offers custom graphic solutions such as protective oil film or overlaminate, to minimize the damage caused by UV. So when buying RV decals, please inform your graphic supplier of the expected lifespan of your decals.
