Peeling Decals...take them all off?

I have a new to me 08 Kodiak 25QS with the bear and scenery stickers and they are all splitting and looks awful. Has anyone just taken all of them off completely and not replaced them? Pics or suggestions would be good, thanks.

Yes had a used trailer and took off all the decals. I used a decal remover product. Painted it on waited a few minutes and off they came. Some required two coats. Much better than using hair dryer.

GraphXOff Vinyl, Adhesive and Paint Remover - GROG

I do not have "stock" in this company but it worked very well for me.

Thanks chily3, any pics of the trailer? Did you end up leaving them off? Just not sure if its worth taking them off, however they look awful.

Here is the finished project with new decals on it. Found them on ebay for a newer fun finder. Only used a few of the set. Mine was 2007 16 foot with red decals and graphics.

It is an easy project, take a look at the directions in the link I posted above. While they were all off polished the entire trailer so a good base to work with.

Strip them off and let your imagination run wild. I'm thinking on getting an art student or students from the high school to do something. I'd be happy to add some to their college fund.
