Most people who have read or have watched The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings wouldn’t mind having their own version of Bilbo Baggins’s Bag End. While building a house in the ground might take some time, having your camping trailer or RV wrapped in your favorite Hobbit-inspired design can be done rather quickly.
The “Bag End” teardrop trailer wrap was designed by Kevin Karl Visual Design.
Kevin Karl, an artist and visual designer living in Northern Nevada, designed a “Bag End” wrap for a customer’s basic teardrop trailer. The wrap looks so realistic: with a 3D rocking chair, rustic wood and brick details, a Hobbit-sized garden, and even a round green door over the top of the trailer’s real door.
Any camper or trailer can be wrapped with a personal or custom design.
The Hobbits’ land of The Shire is represented on the back of the trailer. The teardrop’s kitchen galley hatch has the name of the camper, “Bag End”, as well as a green field and glorious blue sky.
Camper wrap designs can be as creative as their owners.
The “Bag End” teardrop trailer is about 60 inches wide and about 96 inches long. Vinyl vehicle wraps for any sized camper or trailer can be applied by local sign companies. They are a great way to advertise or personalize a bare bones camper and it ends up being less expensive than a new paint job. A small camper or trailer will cost about $1,500 to $1,800 to wrap.
An artist or designer should show you a mockup of your camper wrap before you send the design to print.
Before you decide to wrap your RV, talk to a designer like Karl. A designer can create an accurate template of your RV or trailer that is to scale and print-ready for the sign company. The designer will also need measurements and good photos of your trailer that they will share with the sign company to come up with a design and a wrap that is correctly sized.
