It was about time to make the headquarters a bit more official!

It took about 2 weekends of work to fully finish the job.

1 entire day: cleaning the camper to the best wash of it’s life, not only scraping bugs but getting all the caulk around the windows off for a perfect sticker adhesion

1/2 day: getting frustrated working with a 9.5 foot stickers AND corners (about a foot of material scrapped here).

1/2 day: sucking it up and going for it, we got 2 sides of mountains done, still totally unsure of the proper way to handle big stickers

1 entire day: picked up the last set of mountain stickers with more than 12′ of camper left to cover…. we had measured wrong, and needed another set of stickers… opps! We put up the mountains the best we could, and then tried not to think about the no-mountain-holes as we put up all the wording.

3/4 day: finished off all the mountains (with an extra set of stickers). Put back the vents and anything else we had removed.

Now: we still need to re-caulk the windows.

Conclusion: If you want to wrap your vehicle, and have the money, it is likely worth saving the frustration of doing it yourself. It is not as easy as Youtube makes it look. Sure, the amount of gear needed is minimal (sticker + squeegee). Let’s just say not all squeegee techniques are equal. Perhaps it also depends on your eye for detail, do you mind bubbles?

Shout out: Diecutstickers.com. Most awesome sticker dudes in the world. Hands down.

UPDATE

Since this post we gutted the inside of the camper and gave it a complete facelift on the inside. We’ve decided we can’t call it a trailer or camper anymore and instead it’s a tiny home and office.
