Decorating a Shasta’s Screen Door


Red Outlined Howdy Stencil

“It’s been said that it’s the little things that matter most, and decorating the screen door on my Casita was one of those little things.”

Those were the words I used in my original article: Stenciling the Screen Door on a Casita Travel Trailer. One of the most popular posts on Mrs. Padilly’s Travels.

Without a doubt, that small addition had one of the biggest impacts on my Casita’s overall glamping charm (see image below).

And since so many of you told me you were inspired by this project, I decide to add a similar design to my Shasta.

I hope you find that Version 2 of decorating a trailer’s screen and door inspires you as much as the last.

Happy Trails!
Mrs. Padilly

My New Trailer:

I purchased my new travel trailer in 2016, a 1961 Shasta Reissue, and named her Miss Roxie.

Since this reissue of a 1961 Shasta is actually a new travel trailer, there is no need to renovate her, but there is definitely room to add Mrs. Padilly’s personal touch.

Decorated Shasta Screen and Door

I like to call the personal touch I add to my trailers “my brand.”  In my upcoming article: Branding Tips for Glamping Your Travel Trailer, I will share how to create your own brand for your trailer.

Decorating the Screen Door: Version 2

To decorate the door, I used the same technique on the Shasta as I used on my Casita.

But with this new version, I decided to keep the stencil small, and placed the stencil on the section of the screen that holds the metal slide cover to reach the door handle.

I then added a new element, the vinyl sticker on the interior door with my motto, “Living Life in the Outdoors ~ Texas Style!”

I’m just as happy with the decorating results on the Shasta’s screen door as I was on the Casita, but I did learn one important lesson you must consider when stenciling screen doors.
