Alphard Campervan decals/stripes/themes?


Recommended Posts

Has anyone added any decals etc to their Camphards? I'm 50/50 toying with the idea of getting something unique on my van and have a couple ideas so wondered how many on here have customised in that way? Or do you think it looks naff?

Photos most welcome.

These Toyota classic racing colours could look decent used in a different 3 colour stripe design I think. Would look best on a white Alphie but it might work on my silver one.

What are your thoughts on subtle decals on Alphies? Lots of Campervans have something be it stripes down the lower sides or the larger side graphics. 

I often have daft ideas I never follow up on but wondered how many on here have done similar.

Some folks manage to achieve good results on their VWs, many don't imho !

 

There is a company that produces, what are best described as, murals !

You can see through them, from inside the vehicle.

They are fitted to the rear or side windows.

Certainly a way of customising you Alphie

If interested take a look at Cuttothechase on Youtube

I'm sure I read somewhere that adding decals can invalidate your insurance (or lessen the payout) if you don't notify your insurer that you have made such changes.

 

I'm hoping this is just false info, but maybe other Alphard owners can set me straight.

I hadn't even considered that, cheers. 

I doubt I'l bother but there must be some cool looking Alphies out there that have done it right.

Extremely good point

 

IF you make any modifications to your vehicle, without disclosure your insurance could be invalidated.

This includes, of course, conversions and the addition of non OEM wheel and tyre combinations.

This the one I'm guessing. It's sort of impressive in theory but I'm not sure the Imperial Rising Sun is something modern day Japanese would appreciate.
 




I was thinking something like this but with the retro colour scheme on that Toyota race car I posted.  (Before I read about insurance)

Found this photo of an Alphard for sale on Autotrader. Is this the finish you were thinking of?

Seeing this photo reminded me that most commercial 'signwritten' vans nowadays are carrying vinyl 'artwork' not the painted type of old.

 

Accordingly, they must be hundreds of suppliers of custom designs.
