'Closed' on a 2021 171 this morning...pickup on July 1...trading in a 2011 Coleman Sedona -- easy towing, but tired of extended setup procedures...

OK...it's not even in my possession yet, but would a heat gun and gentle persuasion cleanly remove the frog and 'R-Pod By Forest River' decals?  I'm a MASSIVE Star Trek geek, and may install Delta shield logos and 'NCC-1701 Escape Pod By Starfleet' callouts.

A friend of mine did the same text on the front of his 179. He doesn't have the logos though.

Congrats on the 171! The fastest r-pod!

Yes, the vinyl decals and stickers will peel off with a heat gun.

I removed the frog with my fingernail, and gently pulling up the decal. That left a little residue, which I removed with some denatured alcohol on a soft rag.

Picked up my 'Escape' Pod this morning.  Got 12.6 MPG over 185 miles with my Colorado V6 in 'trailer mode'.  Manufacture date 6/10/21.  Dealer told me he has 12 on order but will be lucky if he gets four.    Sitting in my driveway, it is bigger than I had imagined.  Tomorrow I go thoroughly explore - too pooped out now after 6 hours of driving...
