    Noticed a lot of GI trailers getting the doors rebadged but not the sides or front. Are they just gonna leave them that way? Looks stupid. Even seen a Gi trailer door painted yellow with a new GI decal. WTF? Who's in charge of this BS?

    Most of the GI pups have no paint left on the back doors and the trailer numbers are barely visible. I guess it's better to have a brand new rebranded Estes door than one with paint chipping off everywhere. I too have seen some yellow back doors with a new GI decal. Maybe they had their doors replaced at Estes West shops and have a leftover supply of decals...just a guess though.

    I'm with frootloop. I'd like to see white doors on yellow tractors, yellow dollys, throw in a blue trailer who cares. Even mix up our shirts yellow and white sleeves on grey I'm all in, throw in a tear on the back , even just no back that'd be awesome.

    Yeah like when we had those old Jevic sleepers. Blue sleeper with red wheels, old Estes trailer in the front and old GI trailer in the rear. And they wonder why they couldn't get enough teams out West.

    I cringe when I see a GI trailer hooked with my set. Kinda do that with when I see a former GI driver
