While trailer wraps work best on smooth, flat, nonporous surfaces, we work with trailers of all shapes and sizes. Concave surfaces (recesses), convex surfaces (compound curves), and riveted surfaces are all totally doable. We’ve even wrapped a “boat float!”
In terms of materials, vinyl trailer wraps adhere particularly well to steel, aluminum, glass, melamine, and PVC, and less so on low-energy surfaces (e.g. polypropylene and polyethylene), grained or textured surfaces (e.g. parts of mirrors or body trim), and acrylic paints.
We recommend installing trailer wraps only on paintwork that is in good condition. Avoid unpainted surfaces like trim and bumpers.
When in doubt, ask our team about conducting a preliminary substrate vinyl adhesion test. By applying a sample piece of vinyl and evaluating its adherence, we can determine whether your trailer wrap is feasible upfront, before wading ankle-deep into a deadend project.
Rushing your trailer wrap after a new paint job can lead to unsightly damage. Newly painted vehicles or trailers must be dried and hard for 7 to 10 days before applying your trailer wrap. For air dried paints, we recommend waiting approximately 1 month before applying your trailer wrap.
Our team will provide full instructions for trailer wrap maintenance, and we also offer maintenance services for busy professionals. If you bought your trailer wrap elsewhere, follow these basic guidelines:
